The Essential Cheap Trick

The Essential Cheap Trick

This chronological 36-song career overview collects all of Cheap Trick’s power-pop classics, but it also serves as a reminder that there’s a lot more to them than candy-coated hits like “I Want You to Want Me.” Right off the bat, the rampaging rumble of “E.L.O. Kiddies” and punk thrust of “He’s a Whore” reveal the maniacal side of their split personality. And while their ‘80s canon is exemplified by big ballads like “The Flame,” the grungy grind of 1994’s “Woke Up with a Monster” reasserts their nasty streak.
