Editorial Reviews

Legendary power-pop collective Cheap Trick set a new course with No Direction Home from their upcoming album Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello, due out April 1, their first on Big Machine Records. Pulsating riffs intertwine with the anthemic chorus in this first taste of new music in over five years from the iconic four-piece from Rockford, IL.

Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello follows the recent announcement about the band s forthcoming induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The long-awaited news celebrates the pioneering sound that has lead to sales in excess of 20 MILLION and more than 40 international GOLD and PLATINUM certifications for their multi-award winning back catalogue. Cheap Trick s music has also been featured on more than 20 major feature film soundtracks.

Now into their fourth decade of recording, Bang Zoom Crazy...Hello marks Cheap Trick s 17th studio album and was produced by GRAMMY award-winning producer Julian Raymond. Firmly cemented as one of the most important bands in music history, the quartet will continue their reign as the top progenitors of power-pop through 2016 and beyond with the release of Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello.

Cheap Trick are an indisputable American institution, beloved around the globe since 1974 for their instantly identifiable, hugely influential, brand of pop rock n roll. The band Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar), and Daxx Nielsen (drums) are truly one-of-a-kind pioneers with an unparalleled streak of certifiably classic tunes such as Surrender, I Want You To Want Me and Dream Police.

Famous for having played over 5,000 shows in their career, Cheap Trick will hit the road again this summer in support of Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello and to celebrate their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The band will kick off the Rock Hall Three For All tour of the US alongside Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, beginning July 14 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre, Michigan. The 30-date tour will culminate at Florida s Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre on September 23. Full Cheap Trick tour dates can be found at cheaptrick.com/tour-dates.

Been listening to this band for quite a while - Rockford is two hours from where I grew up and they were local favorites before the Budokan broke them nationally.

I see a series of 5 star reviews and I didn't believe it. The last album that really hooked after 1 listen was the 1997 album and I don't think I listened to "Lastest" more than a few times. But this album has bit and crunch and hooks that the last few just have been missing. This album goes from power rock to power pop - and never lets up. They even jam. This is a loose and happy band but tight as ever.

Yes folks this is prime Cheap Trick like we haven't heard in years.

"Bang, Zoom Crazy, Hello".... compares well to their best in my opinion. Hopefully these songs will be played live a lot.

WOW.... What a pleasant surprise... Cheap Trick has been totally revitalized!!!! Not a bad song on the entire album. Solid from start to finish and Zander's voice sounds better than it has in years... Neilsen with unbelievable cool riffs and the rhythm section is as tight as it's ever been. BEST CHEAP TRICK ALBUM SINCE DREAM POLICE AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!!!!!! ROCK AIN'T DEAD.... CRANK THIS UP AND YOU WILL AGREE!!! If this album would have been released as the follow up to Dream Police it would have sold at least 2 Million Copies and there are at least 4-5 Hit Singles on this album.... If there was still decent Rock Radio in the USA, this album would receive lots of airtime!!!! THANK YOU CHEAP TRICK FOR YOUR BEST ROCK ALBUM SINCE 79!!!!!!

If you're like me, you though the last 3 or 4 Cheap Trick releases were solid, but were missing that certain something that made CT albums of the past instant classics. Well, boys and girls, your wait is over! This album is nothing short of amazing! They play with the spark and fire of a band that still has something to prove, and isn't ready to coast into the Hall of Fame on their work of the 70's & 80's.

FANTASTIC! This is the first CD in a while that didn't require a few listens to grow on me. I loved every song instantly. Cheap Trick has really delivered a winner here! Every song has a great hook, an awesome beat, some jamming riffs, a catchy melody, and generally packs a punch!

CheapTrick just gets better with age. Bang Zoom Crazy...Hello shows that CT boys still have plenty left in the tank. Great musicianship & stellar song writing highlight this album. As a life long fan I was not disappointed at all.

This album is Cheap Trick at its finest. It is an incredible confection of infectious power pop. Much more rollicking than their last outing, The Latest. And as good, if not better, than Rockford. The whole album is a delight. Robin Zander, the man of a thousand voices, still has the greatest voice in rock 'n' roll. Rick Nielsen, the man of a thousand guitars, still has the greatest licks. The backbeat still has the greatest kicks. This album is a must have for all Cheap Trick fans and anyone else who loves great music. The first time I heard "Sing my Blues Away" I got the chills. That incredible voice. The opening track, "Heart on the Line", gets the grooves and moves going in an upbeat direction, and there is really no letdown from there. Thank you Cheap Trick for not just going through the motions but delivering a knockout of an album.

Just....WOW! The CT boys are back with one of their all time best. All the classic sounds are here and they have never been better. I am not lying when I say there is not a bad cut on here. Though, sadly, Bun E Carlos is absent, Daxx Nielson has filled in admirably. Robin's vocals are tight and Rick and Tom ebb together in a blend that comes off nostalgic, yet fresh at the same time. It puts me in mind me Standing on the Edge, one of my all-time favorite CDs. How can they still sound like a band in their twenties? Welcome back, guys!!

There's a few things I'd like to address here in addition to the newest album. First, and foremost, I don't get how you can be 'friends' or 'band mates' for 40+ years and then dismiss your drummer, Bun E. Carlos. So much so, that he has to sue you, and then you counter-sue. It's sad, really, that Carlos is no longer 'in' the band.

Second, I wonder how Daxx Nielsen feels stepping in? I mean, it's not like he can do whatever he wants to with dear old dad's band, can he? That being said, he brings the heat on drums here.

Third, what a 'cheap trick' to release your first album in seven years the week before you're inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! It's was their highest charting album in the Billboard Top 200 chart since 1988's "Lap of Luxury". Ha ha. Very strategic.

Okay, so I've been a fan of Cheap Trick since 1982's "One On One" when I saw their pair of videos for "If You Want My Love" and "She's Tight". However, I didn't actually buy my first Cheap Trick album until 1988's "Lap of Luxury". I know, I know, how could I? But, sorry to say, that's how younger generations do things. They don't start with a band's best album, they start with what's hot, and what's new. Don't worry, I eventually went back in time and collected all of their albums before "Lap of Luxury". And, don't worry, I don't consider "Lap of Luxury" their BEST album. I know now they were under label pressure to incorporate outside song writers to have a hit record, and funny enough, "The Flame" was it.

Like the other reviewers I've read here, I, too, have felt that the last three Cheap Trick albums have just missed that magical something. They've been okay, but not great.
