Cheap Trick - Rockford

On this CD you never forget your listening to Cheap Trick. I love the sound they make as a band. I like Robin Zanders voice. I'm probably a bit nostalgic over this. Songs lean on the side of slower/mid tempo pop rock. Well crafted pop songs, middle of the road stuff. Searching for that elusive hit song that will put them back on top. I like it. Lots of Cheap Trickisms. A lot of familiar sounds, wher I think to myself,
"Oh, I've heard that before".
Just little reminders. Very Sparking recording. The slickness robs the songs of energy. It doesn't sound like four guys in a room rockin'. It sounds like recordings perfected with computers. I'm not blown away by it, but this is one of the better Cheap Trick albums since '84? or so.
