1.0 out of 5 stars Middle aged pap from Cheap Trick April 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was another of the albums where the press release claimed they were getting back to their roots to make the rock album we'd been waiting for since the turn of the 80's. Guess what? I'm starting to think that press releases are just ginned up by the record company to drum up advance interest in their product because NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH in the case of "Busted". All it did was give us three actively bad CT albums in a row. In baseball, that's a strikeout, but music fans are more forgiving. I still faithfully pick up each CT release and have even kept this bowl-swirler around just to keep my set complete, but the dust that sits on it could qualify as "vintage". Maybe I should sell it on Ebay.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could Have, Should Have Been July 27 2001
By Kevin OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A little disclaimer. I am a Cheap Trick fan, but I am not a blind Cheap Trick fan. If they make a mis-step, I will be honest with my opinion. First, Cheap Trick is a modern rock band that hit the scene 20 years to early. Now if being contemporary in the late 80's early 90's meant sounding cookie cutter, bland and boring like Styx who have and will always be a joke, then no thanks. I hold Cheap Trick to a higher standard, and this sound was not a good fit for Cheap Trick. But, for Styx it is a good fit for their music has no soul. Their sound is based upon sounding like showtunes, but that is a whole other story, now on with the review. Busted could have been the cd to blast off the door that Lap of Luxury opened. Common sense says let these guys do their thing, you know, crisp and crunchy guitars, witty sarcastic lyrics (See Modern Rock). Instead, Epic brought in Richie Zito to take out anything edgy or anything with a creative spark and replace it with safe, bland synths, and horrible production. Epic wanted more bland power ballads, like the Flame clone "When You Need Someone. Then there is "Can't Stop Falling Into Love," the nadir of Cheap Trick. This is hands down the worst song they have ever done (actually it is tied with Rock All Night from Standing on the Edge). Rumor had it that Rod Stewart wanted this song, and they were going to let him have it,(please take it Rod) but Epic nixed the deal. Those execs at Epic were visionaries. The only slow song that is worth anything is "Walk Away," with Chrissy Hyndes singing backup. "Back n Blue," could have been a cool Stones/Keith Richards solo type of romp (See keefs first solo album for the song take it so hard), instead we get a glazed over song with no energy, and once again cheesy synths instead of maybe a cool hammond b3. "Can't Understand It," shines through the wickedly horrible production. One can only imagine what this song could sound like if say Rick Rubin produced it, or Brendan O'Brian. The Diane Warren song is a sad sad affair. At the time all I could think was, "Is this the same band that did 'Downed?'" What this album needed was a good producer, and a record label that knew what they were doing. On the whole the majority of the songs here that the band wrote were good if not great songs,(except Can't Stop, and If You Need Me, When You Need Someone,) suffering from lousy production. You could almost feel the bands hand's being tied on each song. The guitars were turned down low, and the synths on high. Busted (the album, and title track) should have just crackled with energy, instead it just plods, same with "You Drive I'll Steer, which is killed with synths. "Had to Make You Mine," is a great Beatlesque (Think Hard Days Night era)song, and Roy Wood's "Rock and Roll Tonight," is also very powerful and fun. Gee, it also had no synths in the mix, go figure. It took Cheap Trick till 1997 to get creative control of their music, and my friends that album was a masterpiece. Busted though is a could have should have been,which is sad for a band of Trick's caliber. The blame can sqarely be put on Epic records, and Richie Zito. Trick had no say in song selection or production. A little thing called creative control alluded them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Busted But Not Beaten Feb. 4 2003
By Tim Brough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So much outside influence had been exerted on "Lap Of Luxury," that you can almost hear the clashing of swords on "Busted." Cheap Trick wanted more control over the sound, Epic Records wanted another "Flame." Between the marketers and the musicians, some sort of balanced was reached. The end result is a album that is good but not inspired, and manages not to become a total bow wow ala "The Doctor."
"Back'N'Blue" is the closest thing to a Stones knock off that Cheap Trick has ever attempted. It totally out rocks anything else on the CD. Almost as if to balance that kind of power, the title track sounds like a piece of modern rock radio piffle. "Can't Stop Falling Into Love" was the band's attempt at writing a hit ballad (it made the top twenty), the label honchos served up another Diane Warren contender with "When You Need Someone."
What all parties seemed to miss (or at least until the "Authorized Greatest Hits" was released) was that the best song here was "Walk Away." This was the kind of song I longed to hear on my radio during those times, a near perfect power-pop-rock confection featuring the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde. Although you can do better in your Cheap Trick CD collection, "Busted" is worth having on that single song alone.
3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Trick - Somewhat Creatively Busted Sept. 14 2008
By Steven Sly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cheap Trick had made a huge commercial comeback with their previous album "Lap Of Luxury". Two years later they would follow it up with this album that could very well have been titled "Lap Of Luxury II" as the two discs are very similar. The band did manage to wrestle away some of the outside songwriter influence from "Busted" as the majority of the tracks were penned by the band themselves with a few exceptions. The album had a big hit with "Can't Stop Fallin Into Love" which is a decent enough ballad. There are some good tunes here including "You Drive I'll Steer" and the album closer the rocking "Rock N Roll Tonight". Unfortunately there area also a plethora of rather annoying ballads, with cheesy production and lots of 80's style synthesizers. "Busted" is ok for the most part, but like the previous album it seems obvious that the record company exerted plenty of influence here and this still does not stack up against early (or later for that matter) material from the band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably the weakest effort from Cheap Trick, Busted was an July 22 1998
By Mark Ostendorf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
attempt to recreate the commercial success of the prior "Lap of Luxury" album. Sadly, it fell short in that regard as well. Obviously, Rick Neilson's songwriting abilities were held hostage somewhere, while the bands strings were pulled by Top 40 hungry executives. Compounding the problem, was the initial release of the horrid "Can't Stop Falling Into Love", one of Cheap Trick's weakest songs ever. This song may have at the time, single handedly destroyed Cheap Trick's commercial foothold with new, younger listeners. The title track "Busted" is a silly, incomprehensible bit of fluff. If you're looking for mediocre, predictable mellow pop ballads, "Wherever Would I Be", "If You Need Me, and Walk Away" will fill the bill. "When You Need Somone" is the most worthwhile of these tear jerkers. On the brighter side, "Back 'N Blue" is an excellent "top 5" sounding song, and though repetitive! , "Can't Understand It" is fun and energetic. All in All, Zander does his best to make this material work, but the rest of the band's talents are wasted - though Nielson shows his ability to play pleasing acoustic, classical style guitar. This album is much too restricted and repressed for lifelong Cheap Trick fan's, but would definitely please young teenage girls, and I mean that in all sincerity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Busted for, and found guilty of, rockin' the house June 7 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Cheap Trick's BUSTED would be worth buying just for the closing song, "Rock and Roll Tonight," in which the band rocks as hard as I've heard. (If you're a fan of "California Man" from HEAVEN TONIGHT, "Rock and Roll Tonight" is by the same composer, Roy Wood.) Good thing "Rock and Roll Tonight" is the closing track, because it will splinter your stereo speakers, especially since play-louds "You Drive, I'll Steer," "Back and Blue" and the title track precede it. On the pop-ballad side,"Walk Away" and "I Had To Make You Mine" stand out. I waver between considering BUSTED among Cheap Trick's very best or just plain good. Hear BUSTED and decide for yourself.
