I guess Mr. Danny Eccleston, who wrote your online review, wouldn’t know a real rock band if it hit him in the face!!!!…Cheap Trick At Budokan is a classic recording by a band which to this day still delivers on all counts! Highly recommended! Danny boy!..give yer’ head a shake!..too much Backstreet Boy’s has rotted yer grey matter!!!!! Long live Cheap Trick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Within months of the U.S. release of Budokan, originally intended only for the Japanese fans who’d made them superstars half a world away, tongue-in-cheek rockers Cheap Trick went from opening American arena shows to headlining them. Rather than remaining eternal could-haves, metallic pop nuggets such as ”I Want You to Want Me” and ”Surrender” instead became radio mainstays in these versions. This gold version of the title offers superior sound quality for a higher price than the standard-issue CD. –Rickey Wright

I remember being a kid in the early eighties and I remember I used to wake up each sunday morning very early to take place in the most comfortable armchair in my parents living room where the stereo system was, putting on the headphones and play (Loud!) the records that made me crazy in those days. The hours that I spent there, were pure magic and I still remember them very clearly and with love. One of those records was just “At Budokan!” by Cheap Trick. So I am very fond to this album. It’s fantastic music, a sort of friendly american rock stravaganza, very melodic, songs that stuck on your head and remain there forever. The perfect blend of easy melodic hooks and simple but catchy arrangements made this album rightly legendary. Today I still listen to this album very much believe me. I prefer this version opposed to the Complete concert. I think it’s more powerful, briefer, but better. Less is more in this case. I think that the longer concert make this music to lose impact and add nothing major. It’s like Coppola’s Apocalypse Now and the new Redux edition. I prefer the original version. The redux edition is simply weaker even if half an hour longer. Go for the original release (maybe just in the better remastered edition), I’m talking about this version with ten songs. I really love this album, it is a special one. One of the easiest to love rock live album ever.
