Editorial Reviews

Within months of the U.S. release of Budokan, originally intended only for the Japanese fans who'd made them superstars half a world away, tongue-in-cheek rockers Cheap Trick went from opening American arena shows to headlining them. Rather than remaining eternal could-haves, metallic pop nuggets such as "I Want You to Want Me" and "Surrender" instead became radio mainstays in these versions. This gold version of the title offers superior sound quality for a higher price than the standard-issue CD. --Rickey Wright

"Sick Man Of Europe" - Cheap Trick - from "The Latest" cd

Biography

Combining a love for British guitar pop songcraft with crunching power chords and a flair for the absurd, Cheap Trick provided the necessary links between '60s pop, heavy metal, and punk. Led by guitarist Rick Nielsen, the band's early albums were filled with highly melodic, well-written songs that drew equally from the crafted pop of the Beatles, the sonic assault of the Who, and the ...

I remember being a kid in the early eighties and I remember I used to wake up each sunday morning very early to take place in the most comfortable armchair in my parents living room where the stereo system was, putting on the headphones and play (Loud!) the records that made me crazy in those days. The hours that I spent there, were pure magic and I still remember them very clearly and with love. One of those records was just "At Budokan!" by Cheap Trick. So I am very fond to this album. It's fantastic music, a sort of friendly american rock stravaganza, very melodic, songs that stuck on your head and remain there forever. The perfect blend of easy melodic hooks and simple but catchy arrangements made this album rightly legendary. Today I still listen to this album very much believe me. I prefer this version opposed to the Complete concert. I think it's more powerful, briefer, but better. Less is more in this case. I think that the longer concert make this music to lose impact and add nothing major. It's like Coppola's Apocalypse Now and the new Redux edition. I prefer the original version. The redux edition is simply weaker even if half an hour longer. Go for the original release (maybe just in the better remastered edition), I'm talking about this version with ten songs. I really love this album, it is a special one. One of the easiest to love rock live album ever.

I first fell in love with Cheap Trick when I was a little girl of about 11 years old. This was my first band, my first concert to attend, and first real album that I ever memorized! I had it on LP. This is about my second CD copy. Love this CD!

What more can I say? one of the greatest live rock n roll albums of all time.
Every fan should own this. It helped make this band the most popular band in the world for a few years. It made me want to see them live. It needs to be played loud! I forgot just how primitive sounding it was. Not the best of sound, but its rock n roll.

This is one of those albums I've always meant to buy, but never got around to, as I had most of the songs in studio recording format already. But it's definitely a Classic. A lot of R&R bands were afraid to go to Japan back then, for a lot of reasons, and there was a lot of anxiety about a R&R band even performing at Budokan. But the fans there really loved the band, and this album really did a lot to put Cheap Trick over the top in the 70's, which they very much deserved.

Not going to write a novel here on a Cheap Trick CD. Believe it or not I have this on 8 Track and Cassette and it was time to go CD....so that was one of the reasons why I ordered it. Another reason....Cheap Trick was coming to my small town for a Show and I got Tics too see them in the 12th Row....so had brush up a bit on my Cheap Trick tunes so to speak ! :-) Oldie, But A Goodie !
