All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Starting in 2007, Cheap Trick made it something of a habit to perform a full-length in-concert cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, celebrating the album's 40th Anniversary and getting them ever closer to their goal of actually being the Beatles. Orchestras were hired, guests invited, a splendid time was had by all, and now in 2009, the December 12, 2007 show is available as either a CD or DVD, mixed by Geoff Emerick himself, the engineer who worked with the Beatles on Pepper. This unabashed, unapologetic fan worship results in a record that sounds pretty much exactly like the original, only with a little more aggression in the rhythms and some funny ...

This unabashed, unapologetic fan worship results in a record that sounds pretty much exactly like the original, only with a little more aggression in the rhythms and some funny accents in the vocals, including Joan Osborne sounding like Chrissie Hynde on "Lovely Rita." Everything, including the encore of Abbey Road's album-closing medley, is fun.

    Stimulating

    Had just seen the concert in Las Vegas & decided to buy the CD, especially since the sales proceeds are donated to cancer research. Loved the show & love the CD. Rock on Cheap Trick !!

    Cheap Trick fans will delight in listening to CT's rendering of The Beatles classic and possibly the best album of all time. Beatle fans may object to any artist re-recording this album. Enjoy the music whether you are a Beatles fan or a CT fan (or both). It's live, it's raw, it's well done. For those of you wanting to compare the original to this live version, please don't. It's like someone else painting the Mona Lisa and comparing........nothing compares to the original. But find pleasure in the duplicate, it can be very soothing too!
