Fuck yeah, I like Cheap Trick. And growing up where I did, I could see them play some small local festival nearly every summer. And even though people would consider them past their prime, they continued to kiss ass live. And this album was before Cheap Trick got started. So I guess this is another addition in the before they were stars posts, as this band features Rick Nielsen and Tom Petersson (unfortunately, no Bun E.). I can't say I love this as much as Cheap Trick, but I enjoy it for what it is; some hard rock with psych gestures. The vocal histrionics and organ grinding can wear a little thin at times, but it's still a solid rock album worthy of a listen.
