Re: New Cheap Trick album

By far their best in many years. Many believe it's down to how long ago they actually completed it for release (just before first lockdown) and that the band and producer, ex Dear Mr President singer, Julian Raymond 'tinkered' with it further while not touring.
Whatever, it's worked! Certainly a strong collection of songs, weakest for me is the Lennon cover, but then I am not a fan of the song anyhow.
One of my very favourites on it is the lovely ballad, So It Goes. Zander's voice is superb on it (and the whole album to be fair .... time hasn't damaged that voice) The song actually predates Cheap Trick, and Robin wrote it while living in Scotland as a teen.
