Cet album fera taire ceux qui considèrent Sweet comme un groupe fade et sans saveur. Il y a dans cet album quelques bonnes leçon de guitares et des perles de hard rock bien trempé. Et surtout, on ressent le plaisir des musiciens!

Ecoutez attentivement, et vous comprendrez... Ne croyez que vos cages à miel et non les crétins qui cassent ce foutu bon groupe ! Durant les glorieuses seventies, Ian Gillan était allé dans le studio où Sweet répètait, juste à côté du studio occupé par Deep Purple. Des gens présents disaient : "écoutez cette m*** !". Gillan avait relaté ce fait à un journaliste de Best ou Rock'n'folk, en concluant : "Ces gens sont des snobs, ils me dégoûtent..." Voilà pour la petite histoire, VRAIE. Après, chacun est libre d'aimer ou non. Sweet était grand, écoutez "Desolation Boulevard" "Sweet Fanny Adams" et "Give us a Wink"... Allez, ACTION !!!

HASH(0x96ccbd5c) étoiles sur 5 Heavy Rock Masterpiece 23 janvier 2003
Par Mark Gordon - Publié sur
Format: CD
One of the remarkable things about the Sweet's discography is the incredible variety of musical styles that they traversed in just a little over a decade. In many respects this album represents Sweet's heaviest hour and also one of its finest.
Songs such as "Keep it In", "Yesterday's Rain" and "White Mice" are loaded with lots of great riffs courtesy of Andy Scott and God knows what pills Mick Tucker was on as his drumming seems almost hyperactive.
Both musicians are largely responsible for the impression one gets that much more music is contained on this album than the 40 odd minutes it actually has.
"4th of July is one of my all time favourite Sweet songs. Although released as a single, it was never as commerical as "Action" or the "Lies in your Eyes", but the meandering keyboards and subtle guitar work with the drug oriented lyrics provide for quite a surreal song which ends with one hell of a bang.
"Action" is another one of the great Sweet songs. Possibly their best. With cash registers ringing, screaming vocals and guitars duelling, this song is loaded with energy and "action" a plenty. I was fortunate living in Australia at the time because as a single, this song performed better there than in the UK and the US and received much more airplay, making it to about no.6. (Ofcourse it made it to No 1 in Germany).
"Lies in your Eyes" is a much more commercial song. It has a very strong melody, but it does not have the musical variety of the other two singles. Once again Aussies appreciated the Sweet more than England and the US, the song making it to about number 10 in the National Charts. In fact, it even made number 1 in Australia's capital city Canberra. (Number 5 in Germany).
Brian Connolly might not have liked singing heavy rock, but he sure was damn good at it. And Steve Priest sure knew how to keep the tempo of a song up with frenetic bass playing, his vocal interludes and overlaid harmonies.
"Off the Record", the follow-up album to 'Give us a Wink", although similar, was a much lighter attempt as a rock album. And the next two albums include some material that is semi-classical (quite superb too if you can drop your preconceptions). Quite possibly the change in musical style was motivated by the fact (at last in my view) that Sweet completely mastered the heavy rock genre on this album.
If you're into heavy rock, I strongly recommend you buy this album. Others preferring Sweet's softer side should start with "Level Headed" or "Cut Above the Rest" (also both 5 star attempts but ooh so different).

HASH(0x96c15ae0) étoiles sur 5 Should you buy "Give Us a Wink" on CD again? It depends... 7 février 2005
Par Philip A.Cohen - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This new UK remaster of "Give Us a Wink" uses the less satisfactory UK running order,which lacks "Lady Starlight"(version 2) which was on the U.S.A. album.The remastering is decent.As for the bonus tracks,you get the 7" single version of "Action"(a different intro,but otherwise the same take as the album version,which featured a longer intro which was spliced on to the same take.What I mean is that the intro on the single version is the orginal,the album version's intro is a revised intro.).The other two bonus tracks are alternate "Munich mix" versions of "Cockroach" & "4th of July",which are essentially alternate takes."Cockroach" features totally different vocals,and "4th of July" a prominent piano,which diluted the song's hard rocking impact.These are similar(but not identical) to the versions heard on the German CD "Platinum Rare".But if you're looking to hear the U.S.A. version of the album,get the Japanese Toshiba/EMI/Capitol CD of the album.That CD reproduces the album cover art(and its' graffiti) in full.

HASH(0x96aa2870) étoiles sur 5 They have assumed control. 16 avril 2005
Par Raymond Talbot - Publié sur
Format: CD
The band has finally reached their adulthood and now have total artistic control of the finished product. SWEET now write all their songs. This gives them wind under their wings and SWEET soar! You can feel them bubbling with energy in every song in every note. We finally get to answer the age old question; how high can Andy Scott sing! Andy takes it to new heights in "The Lies in Your Eyes" putting the "Bee Gees" best vocal efforts to shame. There's only one way to play this album and that is VERY LOUD. The way it was intended. The only drawback here is (exceptionally) the extras (or lack there of). No demo versions, no previously unreleased material. The 3 extra tracks do not offer any incentive as they add very little to the originals. Personally I would very much have appreciated to have the North American version of "Lady Starlight" added as an extra here. It was included on the North American album and was slightly more "polished" than it's UK predecessor. Oh well, no use crying over Yesterday's Rain ;-) Oh, and another thing, would it have killed them to make a "winking" cover like the original vinyl album? We have the technology...

SWEET loses a star here for the extras not worth the extra bucks and being cheap on the cover...

HASH(0x97171108) étoiles sur 5 100 PER CENT SWEET - GRAB A PIECE OF THE ACTION!! 11 février 2005
Par Derek J. Liddard - Publié sur
Format: CD
This album is 100 per cent Sweet, the record where the strings were cut and the band went it alone. The production is handled admirably by Scott, Connolly, Tucker and Priest and every song is a band composition. GIVE US A WINK was recorded for the most part at Musicland Studios in Munich with engineer Mack (who was later to work extensively with Queen.) Part of the recording process was watched by Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones who was particularly interested in the sound Mick Tucker had achieved in recording his drumming. (Coincidently the next Zeppelin album, PRESENCE was recorded in the same studio.) The recording was completed back in London at Ian Gillan`s Kingsway Recorders. There were two singles lifted from GIVE US A WINK, the first being ACTION, a fast and furious rocker which unfortunately only made number 16 in the charts but remains a classic to this day. It was covered by Def Leppard in the Nineties and provided the Sheffield lads with a hit! The other single LIES IN YOUR EYES fared even worse and proved to be the last hit Sweet would have for a couple of years. It was like the Stones and The Who rolled into one but heavier! The songs on this album were probably the hardest rockers Sweet ever recorded, punctuated by longer instrumental passages, which gave the band the opportunity to prove themselves the fine musicians they had always claimed to be and undoubtedly were. YESTERDAY`S RAIN is a superb track with phased guitar and very clever lyrics. COCKROACH is a fine example of the thunderous new drum sound mentioned previously whilst KEEP IT IN sees the band tying themselves in musical knots on the instrumental mid segment. WHITE MICE is a must for anyone who loves harmony guitarwork. The album closes with an experimental, lengthy, semi-funky plodder called HEALER. Great stuff! Sweet were reviled at the time this album was originally released for ripping off all the great bands of the Seventies but in doing so they came up with something unique! GIVE US A WINK is an essential album for any classic rock collection. Don`t hesitate to purchase

HASH(0x96d98a5c) étoiles sur 5 four and one-half stars 27 novembre 2004
Par S. R. - Publié sur
Format: CD
To me "Give us a Wink" was the high watermark that the band could ever have hoped to achieve considering they started out as a glam/bubblegum/teeny booper act under the control of pop songsmiths Mike Chapman, and Nikki Chinn. This could be considered the Sweet's dark album with cut after cut being brooding, standoffish, and sleazy. "keep it in" and "White mice" drive with reckless abandon while "Yesterday's Rain" and "Healer" are mid-tempo rockers that make full use of the bands skills at creating tension and climax. Lead Singer Brian Connolly's voice is shredded at the end of most cuts and sounds incredible while yeoman guitarist Andy Scott makes the most out of every solo and riff, and there are plenty of good riffs to be found here. Production is not a bright as "desolation Blvd." or "Off the Record" but it adds the the greasiness of the whole album, which is ripe with sex and violence. One of my faves from 70's rock, I put it alongside ANYTHING made from the era.
