My favorite Cheap Trick album. Great "in your face" sound, hooks galore! Tracks 1,2,3,6 & 9 are some of the best songs this band has ever done. ROCK ON!

From: Richard Hall Date: June 19, 2002 at 12:50
One of the best releases by hard rocks answer to the beatles.Every track is a winner.a general up tempo feel good vibe and reflections of love are main themes here.Great stuff from a great influential band.

From: Sumo Sid Date: July 27, 2002 at 11:31
Fun CD. Production a little too slick. Catching songs will have you mindlessly singing along. OOP

From: razor2467 Date: June 21, 2003 at 22:24
One of my favorite Trick cd's.....My only beef with it is that the production isnt very good. Great songs though!!!!

From: Harvey Date: November 26, 2003 at 18:22
Not the best CT album, but worthwhile anyway..if only for the absolutely killer track "How About You"

From: holyroller Date: May 15, 2004 at 10:43
"Tonight It's You" is a fantastic song, should have been a huge hit instead of peaking at #44 back in '85. Do not like the production, though.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:09
As typical of their 80's albums, this has a few strong cuts on it ("Tonight It's You" and "This Time Around"), but there is too much filler and the production ruins some of the album. 6/10

From: Acroyear Date: January 11, 2005 at 5:06
As much as I like this album, can anyone tell me why this site doesn't list "One on One" from 1982 or "Next Position Please" from 1983? It's as if this was the first album after "Dream Police".

From: tomcat Date: January 11, 2005 at 5:19
saw them recently live in belgium and boy , are they excellent.. they even had diner in my homtown..hehe anyhow, some excellent material on this disc: standing on the edge,how about you',cover girl and tonite it's you..

From: CurtisLoew Date: January 11, 2005 at 10:43
Acroyear: It's because nobody has submitted them. See that "Submit CDs to HH" link? Feel free to use it.

From: Nick C Date: April 5, 2005 at 13:55
After being "almost" into CT for a few years (I owned Budokan!) I saw them support Motley Crue at Manchester Apollo in support of this album and they completely blew Crue off stage. The next few weeks had me grabbing everything I could by the band...I love 'em. The title track is great and I have to say I like every track on this...BUT if I take my CT coloured shades off and approach it like a newcomer to the band I would say there are a couple of fillers..but it's still great.

From: poproxx2007 Date: December 22, 2005 at 21:44
This CD, The 1980 CD and "Next Position Please" is the best Cheap Trick albums. "Love Comes" is a great Cheap Trick ballad thats better than "The Flame".

After the slightly disappointing 'Next Position Please' album, this was a somewhat return to form. Probably the last great cd they really did without having to get loads of outside writers on board (the following 'The Doctor', although a good album, was pretty patchy). Like Nick, I also saw them on this tour and the blew the Motley boys off at Hammersmith Odeon aswell, which doesn't really surprise me, as they were (and still are) an absolutely killer live band. Anyways, this is a good, consistent, disc and a good addition to their catologue, with 'Little Sister' and 'Tonight It's You' being absolute belting tracks.

very good release by CHEAP TRICK ,full of hooks and great ideas.the songsare mostly uptempo and the vibe is quite rockin ,but therearealso 1 or 2 slower moments which are great!highlights are "love comes","tonight it s you ","wild ,eild women" and "standing on the edge".really liked it!
