The favorite musical sons of Rockford, Illinois, since 1974, Cheap Trick have long since become beloved rock vets and the inspirational godfathers to a host of younger alt and metal stars. But their path hasn't been easy, especially during the '90s and beyond. Plagued by myriad record company woes and fickle critics, the band has survived by playing each and every one of its live gigs like their lives depended on it--which, in a very real sense, they do. This double-disc set documents Trick's 1999 25th-anniversary show, a homecoming and musical love fest held in a sprawling Rockford municipal park. And though 5,000-plus live gigs preceded it, the band turns in one of its most riveting performances, ripping with manic abandon through a one-time set list that includes key tracks from all its albums and a few gratifying surprises. There are guest turns by Billy Corgan, Everclear's Art Alexakis and Slash, occasional backing from the Rockford Symphony Orchestra (especially effective on "Stop This Game")--even vocalist Robin Zander's and guitarist Rick Nielsen's kids make appearances (including an impressive vocal turn by Miles Nielsen on John Lennon's "I'm Losin' You," a song his dad originally recorded with the ex-Beatle). Owing to the outdoor venue, the sound is at times a bit "boomy," but the band is never less than spectacular on this most special of nights. A must for any Cheap Trick fan and a dazzling way for novices to introduce themselves to the band's intoxicating pop/metal/punk brew in its incomparable live setting. Here's to the next 25 years. --Jerry McCulley

The latest release from "the pride of Rockford" demonstrates (once again) what fans have known all along--Cheap Trick is the world's greatest live rock and roll band. This generous collection reflects the scope of the band's songwriting talent, ability to choose covers that fit, and absolute ownership of the stage. The sound is clean and more "hi-fi" than the group's "Music for Hangovers," which is one of the best live rock albums ever, but the sense of celebration that permeates "Silver" is infectious and makes this release seem like an event. That's appropriate, given the nature of the show documented here--a "homecoming" replete with special guests, additional instrumentation and orchestration, and the inclusion of talented friends and family members. From Bun E. Carlos's thunderous opening on "Ain't That A Shame" to Tom Petersson's wall-of-sound 12-string bass (his work on "I'm Losing You" hits your ears like a ton of bricks. Extra heavy bricks), from Robin Zander's peerless voice ("Time Will Let You Know," "The Flame," or "Voices" will stand as proof that there's no one better) to ringleader Rick Nielsen's great guitar work and undeniable rapport with the audience, this 2-disc set is loaded with elements that draw the listener into this very special show. One other note--as cool as it is that Slash, Billy Corgan, and Art Alexakis dropped by to take part in the festivities, none of these guests contributes anything that makes it a "better Cheap Trick performance.Read more ›

I've seen Cheap Trick three times, once in 1979, again in 1986, and a couple of years ago. Each time I was treated to a great show, with awesome performances. Fans of the band will enjoy this double CD alot. It features A song from each of their albums to date. Highlights include great versions of old nuggets like OH,CANDY, STOP THIS GAME, SURRENDER and DREAM POLICE. Acoustic treatments of I Cant Take It & Tonight's It's You work well too. Buy this and realize this band is taken for granted, but they still rock out with a bevy of good songs in their collection.

The lastest "CHEAP TRICK", titled 'Silver', Was from a concert, in there hometown of Rockford, Il., last Summer of 2000. The first time I saw the boys was in a bar, in Aurora Il.,in 1975. My friends and I first noticed Rick with his bowling shirt, shoes, and ballbag. Then the music started. We all took a liking to them from the get go, noticing, at the time, that we liked the music a lot, but hadn't ever heard any of the songs before, until they started playing "Ain't that a Shame".
On this new release, that, and many more of the songs, that the guys have preformed through the years, are here, as well as guest preformers on many of the other tracks. This well rehearsed concert certainly showed everyone, who had seen it, that it was a night to remember. 20 plus songs, done with the intial care that they had in mind, When they were writing them. A rare preformance of 'The Flame', in which Rick even seemed to enjoy playing for once, fully backed with beautiful strings, put a joyus conclusion, to a power pop set of timeless ballads that included a touching duet with Robin and his Daughter. Thats not to say that there wasn't any 'Rockin', that night! These boys have always stayed as close to there, first records vision, of playing music with kick ass backbone. No going through the motions, as many before them and after have done. They have always givin you and I our moneys worth, as you will find this most recent offering, will do also. You can catch this concert, on Direct TV; Ch. 103, Weekends for the month of FEB.

Made in USA in 2000, Serial# CTU-2001-1, Playing Time 129:45
Let me start by saying I'm not an un-conditional CT fan; I bought their first album when it came out because I was going to a KISS concert, and the opening act was CT.
I like many of their songs (I bought their albums ever since...), but many of their songs also leave me indifferent. I bought their previous live album, "Music For Hangovers", as a japanese import, before it got released in America (actually, I thought it wouldn't be released over here, even though the show was recorded in Chicago!)
While "MFH" only included tracks up to "Dream Police", this curret 2-disc set covers a much broader repertoire, which allows us to hear some material never recorded for posterity on a live album. The recording quality is fair, but the performances are fairly uneven, with or without the numerous guests.
I wouldn't recommend this to the CT un-initiated; to those of us that followed their roller-coaster career, it's an enjoyable experience: I'm sure you'll join in the "bula-bula"-fest of the drum-pounding "Who D'King" which closes this album!

"Silver" is a collection of 29 songs from Cheap Trick's 25th Anniversary concert, held in Rockford, Illinois in 1999. For long time fans of the band, it stands alongside "Cheap Trick at Budokan-The Complete Concert" as a must have.
The collection includes most of Cheap Trick's better known songs and includes one song from each of the band's albums. The band receives some very capable assistance from a number of family members and friends, including Robin Zander's daughter Holland assisting her dad with vocals on a very touching rendition of "Time Will Let You Know" (including the Harlem High School choir). Rick Nielsen's son Daxx assists with percussion, and other Zander and Nielsen siblings play on various songs. A string section from the Rockford Symphony Orchestra adds to the punch of songs like "Dream Police" and my personal favorite, "Stop This Game". Guest stars include Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins on "Just Got Back" (featuring the Bun E. Carlos Drum Choir), Slash on "You're All Talk", Everclear's Art Alexakis on a version of the Beatles' "Day Tripper", and former bassist Jon Brant on "If You Want My Love".
Without exception, each song in this collection packs a whallop, even Cheap Trick's only chart topper "The Flame" (which has never been one of my favorites). Simply put...these guys were smokin', and they pulled out all the stops to put on a great show for the hometown crowd!
"Budokan" showed the world why Cheap Trick was one of the greatest live bands of all time. "Silver" shows the world that a quarter of a century later, they still are. Long live Cheap Trick!
