11 Songs, 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After 40 years and 16 albums, founding Cheap Trick members Robin Zander, Tom Petersson, and Rick Nielsen (whose son, Daxx, fills in on drums) keep doing what they do best—sticking close to their ‘60s rock foundation and exceeding fans’ expectations. The first three Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello songs are pure Cheap Trick—all meaty, power-pop glory, Zander in fine vocal form and Nielsen reinforcing his stature as one of rock’s most consistently entertaining guitarists. “Blood Red Lips” is equipped with hearty T Rex touches. “The ‘In’ Crowd” is a supple Ramsey Lewis cover. By maintaining status quo, Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello has the elements and personality of a Cheap Trick classic for a new generation.

Sun Never Sets on Zander's Voice

I can't believe Robin can still belt it out like he does on Sun Never Sets at 63 years of age. After 40 years, most rock singers are mere shadows of their former selves. Zander's voice has held up just fine. There are some great songs on this album that sound like classic Cheap Trick doing what they do best. It's not going to sell beyond their established audience but so what!

Perfect!

Unbelievably fresh. Vibrant. Joyous, melancholic... Real. Better than 2016 deserves. Period. Thank you Cheap Trick!
