Cheap Trick - Heaven Tonight

They have just reissued/remastered the Cheap Trick record Dream Police, which I have been waiting for, so I am in the mood for some power pop magic from the boys. There is no better place to get it than from the Heaven Tonight record.

Auf Wiedersehen is a rockin', nasty tune about suicide with enough attitude to match any punk band. The title track Heaven Tonight is a kind of droning, slightly psychedelic orchestral tune about a subject that should be easy to identify. Robin Zander does a fantastic job of singing on both songs in two very different vocal styles. Oh, and the band kicks ass too.

A must have classic record.

Buy it here.
