At Budokanby Cheap Trick
While their records were entertaining and full of skillful pop, it wasn't until At Budokan that Cheap Trick's vision truly gelled. Many of these songs, like "I Want You to Want Me" and "Big Eyes," were pleasant in their original form, but seemed more like sketches compared to the roaring versions on this album. With their ear-shatteringly loud guitars and sweet melodies, Cheap Trick unwittingly paved the way for much of the hard rock of the next decade, as well as a surprising amount of alternative rock of the 1990s, and it was At Budokan that captured the band in all of its power.

The music was mind-blowing. It shows that Robin actually has the singing ability nailed down to perfection. Also, the music was outstanding, nothing like it. This album would appeal to anyone who is looking for a rock-n-roll band that not only has feel-good upbeat music, but would also be worth going to see live in concert. I would definately listen to the other albums from this band. They are a classic and they deserve it.
