Best Cheap Trick Album

4.28 Ranking created by redleg13
These guys have been around for over 30 years. Nielsen and company got their start in the Rockford, IL area in the early 70's. They toured the Midwest continuously for a number of years before Epic offered them a contract. By that time Nielsen had developes a song catalog that made up their first 3 albums. Petersson was a bassist ahead of his time. Critics have written that Robin Zander has one of the best rock voices 'gifted to a white man'. Success in Japan predated their big breakout in the states. Budokan remains one of the best live albums of its era.

Rick Nielsen continues to be one of the most underrated guitarists in rock history. A great guitarist AND a gifted songwriter. His best album tracks are dynamic, melodic, memorable.

Many albums have been overlooked. Did BUDOKAN really peak at #26? Seemed like it was #1 all summer!

It could be a lot better. I have about ten rankings I need to shape up over the next couple of weeks. Thanks for the input.

This ranking could be easily improved by adding a total of 6 columns. Good so far but could be great redleg!
