Cheap Trick- All Shook Up
Although I wish I had every Cheap Trick record on vinyl, I'm always glad when I get to the last of what I have of a band's catalog while doing this blog. After a few days of listening to the same band, it's always great to get to something different. I'm sure two plus weeks of nothing but Rush will be awesome though!
So this album seems to get a bad wrap, but I like it. Yeah it's different from their first four albums, but it's still pretty rockin'. Even a song like "High Priest of Rhythmic Noise" which I should hate just based on the title, is pretty good. Also kinda neat that it was produced by George Martin and there are nods to The Beatles throughout the album. Robin Zander even kind of sounds like John Lennon on "World's Greatest Lover".
I'd probably have to say my favorite tunes are "Go For The Throat" (which sounds more like classic Cheap Trick) and "Stop This Game". Speaking of which.........
