It took a screaming group of Japanese fans to make Cheap Trick into bona fide stars in their own country. The live version of "I Want You to Want Me" propelled the band on its way to a number of hits through the late '70s and then again in the '80s. Characterized by melodies so strong they were achingly familiar, the band's Beatles-esque harmonies and breaks made memorable moments out of "Surrender," "Dream Police," and later hits like the rocking ballad, "The Flame." Their outstanding cover of "Don't Be Cruel" became one of the only Presley covers to crack the top 10. Equally impressive is their cover of "Ain't That a Shame." Greatest Hits would play better as a well thought out "Best of" collection. While the songs included on the CD did show some chart action, some of their best work ("He's a Whore," "Heaven Tonight") is nowhere to be found in this compilation. It's almost worth it to spend the money on Cheap Trick's first three CDs--it's worth the investment and song for song, a better listen than Greatest Hits. --Steve Gdula

If you're not a die hard fan this is the only Cheap Trick disc you'll need. Good from start to finish. Not a bad song on it.
