That this album sank virtually without trace on release is quite possibly the biggest injustice of the bands history.'Cheap Trick' is quite simply one of the bands best albums and is a sure fire delight for fans. Opener 'Anytime' could have graced any of the early albums and still been a stand out! A lot of the songs on this album have that classic CT 'nervous' edge about them but maybe rock just a little less hard. This said, the influx of melody and commerciality proves to be most welcome and how single 'Say Goodbye' missed the charts is a mystery? 'Wrong All Along' and 'Baby No More' are typical Robin Zander shouty rock numbers, while the tender and touching 'Shelter' perhaps shows that there is a serious side to our beloved Mr Neilsen after all! The album fiinshes as strongly as it started too with the excellent, atmospheric 'Eight Miles Low' and the rock ballad (but not like 'The Flame') 'It All Comes Back To You'. If you like Cheap Trick but have heard bad things about this record, FORGET WHAT YOU'VE HEARD cos' this is a classic. ESSENTIAL.
