If only Cheap Trick had done the sensible thing and disappeared for at least 10 to 15 years. They could have basked in the admiration of all the hip 90s bands they influenced, and then made a sizable comeback with Rockford (their home town). But, no, they had to release 18 albums (five of them live); never lose a member; never once call it quits in their 33-year history. People need to make a living, but it's tough to get pumped for new material when a band works this hard -- even if Linda Perry pens and produces one song, Perfect Stranger, the album's best track. Everything else sounds exactly as you'd expect. Maybe Japan will dig this, but something tells me even they're burnt out on the Trick by now.
