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.
"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.

This is party rock at its wonderful best.
Unfortunately, this album has one of the worst cover art of all times for a rock band. Read more
HEAVEN TONIGHT is by far Cheap Trick's best studio album ever. Although there is plenty of twisted humor here, these guys are no novelty act. Read morePublished on Sept. 30 2002
