  • Credits

    Cheap Trick: Robin Zander (vocals, guitar); Rick Nielsen (guitar, mandocello, background vocals); Tom Petersson (electric, 8- & 12-string basses, background vocals); Bun E. Carlos (drums).
    Additional personnel: Jai Winding (piano, organ).
    Recorded at Record Plant, Los Angeles, California.
    Although Cheap Trick's fourth studio album, DREAM POLICE, was ready for release at the beginning of 1979, it was delayed for nearly a year due to the surprise success of their hit single "I Want You To Want Me" and album AT BUDOKAN. When it did finally come out in September, it became the band's biggest studio album, peaking at #6 on the charts and going platinum.
    There are more than a few Trick classics included on DREAM POLICE. The fiercely rocking title track (one of the band's most renowned compositions), "Way of the World," and two epics--the nearly ten-minute-long "Gonna Raise Hell" and a seven-and-a-half- minute rendition of "Need Your Love" (originally released as a live version on AT BUDOKAN) are all standouts. You'll also find a forgotten ballad, "Voices," which almost cracked the top 30.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (p.124) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A band with a toehold not only in the excesses of early-'70s guitar rock but also the pop sensibilities of new wave and disco, they pulled off this gymnastic feat with their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks."
    Uncut (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] pummeling assault of stadium riffs and bonkers lyrics....If only all rock was this smart."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.124) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "DREAM POLICE is hard rock at its smartest: witty, punchy, inventive, heavily Beatles-influenced and full of killer hooks."
