    Rocks like no other Cheap Trick Record

    If you had listened to this record back in 1977, you would not have been able to see the direction the band would take later in their career, with Dream Police, Next Position Please etc. Back in the day this album could be described as cutting edge, or wait, not cutting edge, but, but... in other words, this album rocks but it's so unusual in its style that comparing it to any other band back then would have been difficult. Nowadays (especially with "The Latest", and some of their other previous releases) you can really sense the influence The Beatles had on these guys. But if you listened to this album back in 1977, you probably couldn't have said with any certainty what influenced their sound. It's just a hodge podge of different high powered guitar sounds. Why Cheap Trick veered so noticeably toward The Beatles later on only they or their producers could say, although we all know that The Beatles is a pretty reliable franchise. If you want to hear Cheap Trick before they made it big (or bigger) buy this CD, if only to help complete your collection and trace the band's development over time.
