"OK, maybe I'm being too critical, but I thought the picture quality was not quite as good as I expected. That being said, this DVD is still a "must buy" for any music lover. The song Mandocello was worth the price of the DVD alone, not to mention such rare songs as Hot Love and How Are You? Particularly good is the commentary by the band in the extras section. Most commentaries are boring, but Rick, Tom, Robin, and Bun E. do a great job! Did you know that one of the guitars Rick uses was a gift from George Harrison? I hope there is a follow up box set that covers all four nights. That would be Heaven Tonight!"

""Music for Hangovers" is definitely the best of the DVD's that Cheap trick has to offer. The actual video quality is not that great, but the music is what matters. This DVD will impress all the hardcore Cheap Trick fans, with the selection of songs you never have heard performed. The selections stand the test of time; the songs still sound fresh today, as they did when they first where pressed on vinyl. Man, did we come a long way! "Silver" is an alright DVD, but for the person who really loves their music, "Hangovers" is the choice to make!"

"This DVD makes me really bummed that it's been years since the band was last here in Australia!!
It's really awesome, and the commentary track is worth the price alone!
They just get better and better - Robin's voice is beyond compare, Rick is a total legend, Tom is just too cool for school and Bun E. rocks!
Buy this, you won't be disappointed!"

"Well this has to be one of the most anticipated DVD's for me in the past 3 years. And let me tell you, it does not disappoint in the least! Cheap Trick is represented here with what they do best.....LIVE MUSIC that will rock you and roll you all over your living room!I was lucky enough to be at all four of the Chicago Metro shows back in 1998. This DVD is a great keep-sake from those 4 nights of incredible music and vibes. The sound quality on this DVD is just spectacular! I recommend the 5.1 selection, you feel like you are standing in the middle of the main floor at the Metro!The video is pretty good quality too, although some camera shots are not quite as crisp as others, but it will not take anything away from this experience. The fish-eye camera lens is pretty cool too, but I must admit it took me off guard the first time I viewed this DVD.There are a few extras on this DVD, but the one that you must go to after your view the concert is the "commentary track". Oh, man-I feel off the couch laughing hysterically! All four members of Cheap Trick are in one this one and let me tell you, it's a great time! You feel like you are in the room watching it with them. They should start their own comedy group.The poke fun at themselves, give you cool and interesting facts on certain facets of their equipment, choice of clothes, favorite songs, moments, etc. It's truly a privilege to be in on their conversation.All-in-all this DVD, "Music For Hangovers" was well worth the wait! If you were not able to be there, you will be able to get an idea of what that night was all about. For those of you that were there, it's a great ride back to those four nights in which Cheap Trick proves again that they are one of, if not, the best, live bands in rock history! Thank you Cheap Trick!!!"
