Just Curious: Cheap Trick...

Hey Everyone,

I listened to “Live At Budokan,” “In Color” and “Next Position Please” today and was reminded of what a great band this is. From power pop to solid ‘70s & ’80s style hard rock, these guys were versatile and talented. Any fans out there? And if so, I’d be curious as to what your favorite albums and songs would be. They were/are one of those bands who seemed to go through different phases and whose music varied stylistically from album to album. Probably too much so, actually. I’m sure that many a fan eventually got fed up with never knowing what their latest album was going to sound like. (Perhaps a bit like Harem Scarem back in the ‘90s?!) I figure that, as long as you don’t have any preconceived ideas as to how one of their albums *should* sound, you can just appreciate their music for what it is: generally well-crafted and well-executed rock music with varying degrees of a hard edge. My collection is far from complete, but I don’t own one Cheap Trick album that I don’t enjoy playing from time to time. Opinions?
Cheers,
Don
