Customer Reviews

A Special One, Indeed.

For some reason, this album was largely overlooked and didn't sell very well--I personally fell in love with it from the moment I heard the Trick performing the first song from this album, "Scent of a Woman", on Conan in early summer 2004. While this album is not like traditional Trick, the sound has hints of their old style and overall sounds very fresh--"Pop Drone" is the best example of this, giving hints of their old hits like "Dream Police". "Best Friend" and particularly "Low Life in High Heels/Hummer", along with the the previously mentioned "Scent of a Woman" are the the highlights. U2's hit 2005 album, "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb", definitely had a precedent--it was the sound of recent Cheap Trick albums like this one.

A Gem

I must be the only one, but I think this is their best one. Their are great rockers like the Scent of a Women, Sorry Boy, an dthe fun Low life in High Heels/Hummer. There are interesting pieces like Pop Drone, Specail One, and Best Friend And Too Much is the best radio song Cheap Trick ever did that never got real radio play This one has an edge. I think their best

Cheap Trick Fans Should Own This One

I downloaded Special One a month prior to a CT concert in Oregon (April ’06) and have enjoyed this CD it from the start. You can’t listen to the song “Special One” at low volume. Like “Dream Police” you find yourself cranking it up every time it comes on. Special One has Cheap Trick’s signature sound and feel, but has a fresh texture and energy; this is not recycled music. Robin Z.’s vocals are killer from start to finish and B.E.C. lays down solid drum work throughout. This CD reminded me how subtle CT’s bass guitar is in much of their music, almost too subtle by today’s standards. There are a few songs, like “Special One”, “My Obsession” and “Best Friend” that deliver the bass, however. I’ve read the other iTunes reviews on this CD and can’t understand how some folks have loved CT’s newest release, Rockford, yet panned Special One. They’re both very good and any CT fan worth his/her salt should own them both. P.S – Cheap Trick still rocks the house in concert, see ‘em when you get the chance. They have a nice web site too.

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...
