The Band that Influenced a Generation is Back with a Brand New Studio Album, Tracks Include: Anytime, Hard to Tell, Carnival Game, Shelter, Yeah Yeah and More.
Cheap Trick's recent 4 CD collection, Sex, America, Cheap Trick, thoroughly documented and neatly wrapped up the group's first 20 years together. Though one might have assumed Cheap Trick were history, this 1997 self-titled (their second such) disc proves those notions false. In fact, they are as vital as they've ever been, and their sweet-yet-tough, Beatles-influenced pop is as relevant today as it was in the band's late-'70s heyday. Cheap Trick sound much as they did in those first five classic albums. The band has stuck closely to the simplicity of two guitars, bass, drums, and vocals, and it works superbly. The songs are some of the strongest Cheap Trick have written--instantly hummable and brimming with fine pop hooks. Robin Zander's voice is flawless, and the simple, sparkling recording gives him the spotlight without overshadowing Rick Nielsen's fine guitar work and the understated rhythm section of drummer Bun E. Carlos and bassist Tom Peterson. Freed of the shackles of their previous recording contract, with Cheap Trick (1997), Cheap Trick return to writing the caliber of songs--some light, some serious--that made them rock & roll icons in the '70s. Welcome back! --Adem Tepedelen

I have bought this cd twice (wore one copy out). If you see it, get it, you won't be disappointed. Robin's voice is incredible and the hooks abound. 5 stars for this one!
----being bored (like i usually am) i decided to look through my CD collection (some 350 odd cds WITH a printed list) and looked at this here CD. I almost threw up...because i remembered how i got it. Just so happened one day i went into a Dollar General for...something i forget and saw this CD...FOR 5 FREAKING DOLLARS!!!! Brand new never opened...i almost had a brain anursym (SP?) and on the spot payed for it and not for what i initally went in for. I strolled home and pulled in to the stereo and i listened to it...and i wanted to slap these Red Ant fools but i had never heard of such a company.
Now with the tracks:
1. Anytime: 4.5/5 I don't like the singing at the begining, but the chourus and the simple guitar work sticks!
2. Hard to Tell: 5/5 IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO TELL...this song has a great chorous and great drumming.
3. Carnival Game: 4.5/5 Don't ask me why but the piano bit at the begining followed by some power work from Rick really nails this song down.
4. Shelter: 3.5/5 I like it, but i'm personally not a huge slow song man.
5. You let a lot of people down: 5.5/5 This is all around greatness and is a reason this CD puts there 80's work to shame.
6. Baby No More: 4.5/5 By CT standards, quick and brutal with some funny but repetative vocals.
7. Yeah yeah: 5/5 I always dug this song don't ask me why but it's great...i would of liked it longer but hey.
8. Say Goodbye: 4/5 Not bad but is normal CT stuff.
9. Wrong all along: 4.5/5 quick (2:10) song and the ending is funny (Seems to me, oh my life is reallying goin' to hell)
10. Eight miles low: 5/5 the lyrics are weird as hell but the instrumental part is great.
11. All comes back to you: 3/5 Okay song.Read more ›

Cheap Trick (97) is one of those hard to find albums. But it is definitely a must have for ant Cheap Trick fan. It has kind of got lost in time but is a very very good album.Published on Sept. 29 2013 by Bootsy Bass
