"CHEAP TRICK '97 was as strong and as muscular a CD as the band had made in their glory days. Too bad the Red Ant label took the fall within weeks of the record's release! It remains Cheap Trick's last album to crack the top 100, and might have easily brought them the same kind of comeback "Lap Of Luxury" afforded them. Even more to the point, this is a better record than "Lap," and an all-the-way Cheap Trick effort.There is more snarl to opener, "Anytime," than most of the pretenders to the crown could muster for a whole CD. And things just get better from there. You get the wicked punkish bite of "Wrong All Along," the pitch perfect Beatle-esque single "Say Goodbye," and the most beautiful and intimate song the band has ever recorded with "Shelter." Every single song bristles with energy and memorable hooks, and there isn't a moment here where the band sounds forced (see "Lap Of Luxury" and "Busted"). All four Tricksters are at there finest form, manning their posts like they were a hungry young band and not the grizzled vets they are.I recommend this to anyone who ever loved Cheap Trick at any stage in their career, or if good old fashioned power pop makes your heart beat just a little faster."
Cheap Trick - self-titled (Red Ant)

"Might be a bit confusing for some,because the band's very first album was self-titled,wasn't it?To those of you who've wondered about the where abouts of Cheap Trick,they've never gone anywhere.Often,maybe there are certain cities they just skip playing for awhile.'Cheap Trick' is sure to truely satisfy any and all long time fans.Plus,I've usually seen this disc priced rather low.I've always considered the guys to be 'heavy pop' and that's just what they are.Best tracks are the single "Say Goodbye","It All Comes Back To You","Wrong All Along","Anytime" and "Hard To Tell".As for the line-up,yes I've had others ask me about that.It's all original,Robin-vocals,Rick-guitar,Tom-bass and Bun E.-drums.If you don't know their last names,YOU seriously need to relocate to another planet."
What a bunch of crappy crap doo!

"ere, sorry let me state why the title is the way it is:----being bored (like i usually am) i decided to look through my CD collection (some 350 odd cds WITH a printed list) and looked at this here CD. I almost threw up...because i remembered how i got it. Just so happened one day i went into a Dollar General for...something i forget and saw this CD...FOR 5 FREAKING DOLLARS!!!! Brand new never opened...i almost had a brain anursym (SP?) and on the spot payed for it and not for what i initally went in for. I strolled home and pulled in to the stereo and i listened to it...and i wanted to slap these Red Ant fools but i had never heard of such a company.Now with the tracks:1. Anytime: 4.5/5 I don't like the singing at the begining, but the chourus and the simple guitar work sticks!2. Hard to Tell: 5/5 IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO TELL...this song has a great chorous and great drumming.3. Carnival Game: 4.5/5 Don't ask me why but the piano bit at the begining followed by some power work from Rick really nails this song down.4. Shelter: 3.5/5 I like it, but i'm personally not a huge slow song man.5. You let a lot of people down: 5.5/5 This is all around greatness and is a reason this CD puts there 80's work to shame.6. Baby No More: 4.5/5 By CT standards, quick and brutal with some funny but repetative vocals.7. Yeah yeah: 5/5 I always dug this song don't ask me why but it's great...i would of liked it longer but hey.8. Say Goodbye: 4/5 Not bad but is normal CT stuff.9. Wrong all along: 4.5/5 quick (2:10) song and the ending is funny (Seems to me, oh my life is reallying goin' to hell)10. Eight miles low: 5/5 the lyrics are weird as hell but the instrumental part is great.11. All comes back to you: 3/5 Okay song.Overall: 4.9/5 This marked something of a comeback for the guys known as Cheap Trick, proving that they are not dead but rather taking sometime off to find there true sound: god forbid we got another CD like The Doctor or Standing on the Edge again!"
