Album Review

At Budokan unexpectedly made Cheap Trick stars, largely because "I Want You to Want Me" had a tougher sound than its original studio incarnation. Perversely — and most things Cheap Trick have done are somehow perverse — the band decided not to continue with the direct, stripped-down sound of At Budokan, which would have been a return to their debut. Instead, the group went for their biggest, most elaborate production to date, taking the synthesized flourishes of Heaven Tonight to extremes. While it kept the group in the charts, it lessened the impact of the music. Underneath the gloss, there are a number of songs that rank among Cheap Trick's finest, particularly the paranoid title track, the epic rocker "Gonna Raise Hell," the tough "I Know What I Want," the simple pop of "Voices," and the closer, "Need Your Love." Still, Dream Police feels like a letdown in comparison to its predecessors, even though it would later feel like one of the group's last high-water marks.

Customer Reviews

Classic Cheap Trick!

This is one of their best albums. The first four songs are must haves, I especially love "Way of the World" which I think is one of their best all-time songs. I love the arrangement and strings, especially at the end. "Voices" is another great one. No Cheap Trick collection is complete without several of these tunes. 30 years later, and I still love this band.

CRAZY GOOD!

Voices is probably my favorite CT song, but ALL are good. Dream Police is also one of my faves. ONCE AGAIN, BUY THEM ALL!!!!

Why Don't You Have This?!

This is a quintessential Cheap Trick record, one every dye-hard fan should own and listen to frequently.

There are so many layers to this record that it requires repeated listening, especially with headphones while not being interrupted.

I bought this album when it was originally released and I still have the original vinyl album is perfect condition. But this is a must for your iTunes collection!

Cheap Trick does not disappoint and the songs as a whole and individually are really something to behold. It's more than just the title track, it has true staying power.

Get this now!

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...
