I love the energy here and Zeppelin, AC/DC influenced jams (best track: Need Your Love, which could be mistaken for Def Leppard or the Scorpions). But, this is not a great representation of everything Cheap Trick can do. To put it another way, if this record shows how they influenced hair metal, "In Color" shows how they influenced Nirvana. A fairly lightweight read of Cheap Trick's material.

While the first three Cheap Trick albums are arguably their best, I think the songs are even better in a live setting. Truly a must-own for any fan of power-pop.

As a teenager in 1979, I wore out my air guitar jamming to this one on headphones in my bedroom. Growing up in Nashville, Cheap Trick came through town once a year and I saw them every year for about 12 years. Have seen them several times off and on and while they're a bit older, they haven't missed a step. Still one of the greatest live bands going today.
