iTunes Editors’ Notes

Cheap Trick’s second album blended the Midwestern rock ’n’ roll sensibilities of a hard-touring band with mad musical nods to The Who, The Move, and The Beatles. The songs here are never throwaway, because guitar hero and main songwriter Rick Neilson has a knack for adding ironic little twists (both musically and lyrically) to his tunes, and singer Robin Zander's gutsy voice is dynamic like John Lennon’s. Those are reasons this album has held up so well over the years. More, “I Want You to Want Me,” “Southern Girls,” “Downed,” “C’mon C’mon,” and “Oh Caroline” are absolute power pop classics.

Customer Reviews

Prime Cheap Trick

In Color and Heaven Tonight represent the apex of Cheap Trick's catalogue. In Color rolls relentlesly from beginning to end without letting up. The chopped Harleys on the cover (their coolest in my opinion) are totally appropriate to the breakneck pace. While nothing will dissapoint, Downed, Clock Strikes Ten, and Hello There stand out as some of the most uncompromising and straight ahead rock & roll from the decade.

So I bought it not knowing that this was a studio project and this version of "I Want.." sounds so plain but very original. I laugh everytime I hear it cause this is thee original recording and it has its own sound.

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...
