Customer Reviews

Great band, a great set, and even better -- LIVE!

Cheap Trick has always been an underdog act. Sandwiched between disco & punk when their debut was released in 1977, the band would have been largely overlooked if not for the classic live Album "At Budokan" which was impossible to ignore back in 1979. That album still holds its own as one of the greatest live albums of ALL time. But what made Budokan such as success is evident here as well, and that is Cheap Trick has always been one of the greastest live Rock & Roll acts around, and that sound was always impossible to capture in the studio -- though producers tried and tried. "Music For Hangovers" recorded 20 years AFTER Budokan captures the band in an intimate series of club gigs before fans in Chicago, and they sound as tight and high-powered as ever running a set of their early catalogue from the first four albums. Zander's voice, amazingly still can morph unlike any vocalist today. The '77 debut referrred to him as "the man of a thousand voices", and he earns the title to this day. Nielson's frenetic guitar playing still transcends style-boxing, and the rhythm section of Bun E. Carlos and Tom Petersson still supports the catchy melodic flow of Nielson's writing flawlessly. These songs are among the bands best, and despite the years the set and the band sound as vibrant and vital as ever. Highly recommended way to introduce yourself to the band!

Arguably better than even Budokan

This magnificent record proves that even in the late 90's Cheap Trick remained one the country's greatest live acts. Each member is in top form...especially ace vocalist Robin Zander who soars brilliantly through every track pushing himself to his limits...he sounds so emotionally committed you would think that this was the last time he would ever perform these songs. Roaring, passionate versions of Taxman (with complete bridge), I Can't Take It, So Good To See You, Dream Police, The Ballad of TV Violence, and Oh Claire FAR outperform their studio versions.

Cheap Trick is one of it not the most underrated pop/rock bands of all time. Great vocals, catchy riffs, simple bass/drum lines. Over doing it is never done by this band, even in the 9+ minutes Gonna Raise Hell. Robin Zander has got a great voice, pure and simple, that has not diminished one bit over decades of touring non-stop. Some of the greatest have destroyed their voices, Robert Plant comes to mind, over time with aging and rock life styles but Robin's vocals are just as strong now as ever. You won't find many bands that sound as good live as Cheap Trick, either. There's a reason they've inspired so many other rock acts, like Smashing Pumpkins.

Biography

Formed: 1975 in Rockford, IL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Combining a love for British guitar pop songcraft with crunching power chords and a flair for the absurd, Cheap Trick provided the necessary links between '60s pop, heavy metal, and punk. Led by guitarist Rick Nielsen, the band's early albums were filled with highly melodic, well-written songs that drew equally from the crafted pop of the Beatles, the sonic assault of the Who, and the tongue-in-cheek musical eclecticism and humor of the Move. Their sound provided a blueprint for both power pop and...
