iTunes Review

Four decades later and Cheap Trick mostly indulge their pop instincts. Besides, what was once hard rock is now power pop anyhow. Rick Nielsen’s tough, distorted guitars that defined hard rock in the ‘70s have become the standard for delivering pop songs in the new century and he takes charge here with his usual authority. A cover of Slade’s “When the Lights Are Out” gives a nod to the band’s influences and their original era of prominence without falling victim to nostalgia. “Miss Tomorrow” follows with a decided psychedelic touch to the production, as the vocals flip in and out and the band pauses with ornate, staggered, trippy effects. The band’s hard rock powers through in limited supply; “Sick Man of Europe” and “California Girl” up the tempo and wattage, but mostly these veterans are content with exploring harmonies and melodies at a quieter, more leisurely pace (“These Days,” “Miracle”) with Robin Zander’s pretty vocals preening in the spotlight where they belong.

From vinyl to mp3

I've been a fan since "In Color, and in Black and White" came out on vinyl. While on occasion, I've slipped away I've always checked in on what the boys were up to. This album is not so much a return to the earliest Cheap Trick as it is a return to top form for the band. Every song is great! Lots of Beatlesque sounds but remember Lennon himself worked with the guys shortly before his passing. Get this record! It's incredible!

I Can Die Now!

This is the one George Martin should have produced. Without question...this is the absolute finest collection Cheap Trick has laid down in the last 20 years. Unbelievable melodies... Exquisite production and arranging... And Robin sounds incredible! Like everyone else here, I, too, cannot stop playing it. What a shame radio won't pick up on it. But I am so thankful this cd was recorded. It goes down as one of the finest listening experiences of my life. After all these years, I just knew Cheap Trick could still do something like this...

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...
