Cheap Trick somehow managed to walk that line between heavy metal and pop without attracting either tag. Their hard rocking, adrenaline-driven approach bears traces, on this album, of many influences, from The Who to The Beatles, T. Rex and perhaps even the likes of The MC5. They give a raucous delivery to what is quite a melodic collection of songs. The breezy title track is like a warm-up for 'Way Of The World' and 'The House Is Rockin'', both tracks on which Bun E. Carlos drives on with blistering drumming. Unusually, the second half of the album is flawless, with 'Voices' providing a poppier interlude. The epic 'Need Your Love' is a great climax. My only gripe is 'Gonna Raise Hell', a decent song, but way too repetitive and too long at nine lumbering minutes. Almost a classic, this album, and highly recommended.
