While any of the first three Cheap Trick studio albums are must-haves in any music collection, Heaven Tonight has always been my personal favorite. I was introduced to it driving home from bowling one Saturday in high school. The Bear had a $75 Plymouth that he had outfitted with a stereo that consisted of an 8-track and a set of house speakers that sat on the back seat. ("Don't step on my speaker wires, man!") As we pulled away from Walt's, Bear popped an 8-track into the player and made a comment about my lack of taste in music. For the rest of the ride I sat back and marvelled at the fact that he was right. Whatever we were listening to was way better than what I had at home. It turned out to be Cheap Trick's - Heaven Tonight and as soon as I had saved up enough I went to the Records, Tapes and Posters shop in the Newport Shopping Center and bought myself a copy. Since then I've owned it on everything except cassette, but I made up for that by owing the cd twice. (The original and the remaster.) Like Cheap Trick and In Color, it's a great listen from front to back, but it strikes a happy medium between the straight ahead rock of the debut and the poppier rock of In Color. In my opinion it's a medium that they should never have gotten away from, but the success of Budokan changed people's perceptions of the band forever. Too bad. It's a formula I could listen to even today.

Rick Nielsen once said he had a big enough stash of songs written in the early days to have cut a dozen albums. If that was a true statement, he was saving up the best for "Heaven Tonight." Absolutely everything here clicks. From the cryptic fun of "Surrender" to the kiss-off of "Auf Weidersen," there isn't a lame cut in the bunch. They also take a stronger stance in the production department, peeling the gloss of "In Color" back just enough to give the rocker instinct some bite, but leaving enough pop polish to make the album sparkle.
Nielsen had become a guitar maniac by now, throwing off inventive riffs like he'd just invented the six-string. The rolling thunder of "Stiff Competition" and "Auf Weidersen" out new-wave many of the bands sporting skinny ties at the time, and their cover of the Move's "California Man" make Cheap Trick sound as brilliant as any British Invasion band of the sixties. "Surrender" is also quite possibly the most subversive rock song to brush the lower regions of the pop charts. Bubbly keyboards, Pete Townshend-ish guitar banging and a lyric about sneaking in on your parents while they make out to your KISS records...if that isn't your idea of a rock anthem for the post baby-boom generation, you're probably reading this review by accident.
Equal parts funny and deviant, yet 100% tuneful, "Heaven Tonight" is Cheap Trick's high water mark in the studio. If you get any Trick album other than "At Budokan," this is the one you must have.

Why is Aerosmith the darling of the current classic rock media coverage? It can't be because they are more media friendly, have a better lead vocalist, guitarist, bassist, or drummer for that matter. Heaven Tonight is possibly, the band's greatest work. Rolling Stone within the last 2 months listed it as one of the top 50 "coolest" albums of all time. Why do guys like Art Alexakis and Billy Corgan make live appearances regularly with Rick, Robin, Bun E, and Tom? Because they respect them! More people should! Heaven Tonight provides FM radio what is dearly needs: something that hasn't been played. With the exception of the Trick classic "Surrender", the album didn't receive any airtime, as with most CT albums. "High Roller", possibly the best song ever recorded by the band is definately worth a listen.
"On the Radio" provides a innocence and joy that rock music dearly misses. "California Man" provides the tongue and cheek references that are the band's signature, but the general public doesn't get. Stiff Competition shows the band's grit and Alverterzaine and Heaven Tonight show the band's dark side. This album is a must have and one of 10 I would take if I was deserted on a desert island.

Cheap Trick's "Live at Budokan" has been considered by some folks to be one of the best live Pop/Rock albums of all time. It took a moment in time and a moment in music and put it on Vinyl. That album put CT on the musical map, not only because of the way it captured the band's live energy, but also because of the great songs from their first 4 albums (although Dream Police wasn't actually released until after Budokan). Out of those first four albums, I think "Heaven Tonight" is their best. There isn't a throw away track on it. It is able to cohesively bring together lighter Pop and harder edged Rock in a way that works. In my opinion it's more musical than their debut album, rocks harder than "In Color", and comes off more straightfoward and honest than "Dream Police". Everything on "Heaven Tonight" just clicks. Too bad that, except for the slightly overplayed "Surrender", this album seems all but ignored.

HEAVEN TONIGHT is the third in a trio of great albums that CHEAP TRICK put out in the late 70's. CT makes great music that has great music and melodies and HEAVEN TONIGHT has all those ingredients. Listen to this album and you will know why Robin Zander is one of the greatest rock singers ever, THE MAN OF 1000 VOICES. Rick Nielsen plays a mean guitar and Bun E. and Tom are a great rhythem section. It is great to finally see the band start getting the recognizition they rightfully deserve. If you are looking for great rock 'n' roll, here it is. You have the some classic songs here: SURRENDER, ON TOP OF THE WORLD, CALIFORNIA MAN, AUF WIEDERSEHEN. The CD is remastered and the sound quality is awesome. Out of the 2 bonus tracks, the outtake of SURRENDER is the best. There is a verse in there that had to be redid but I think that it should have stayed. So go out and get this album and be ready to rock.
