Agree. I know they might do Anytime once a decade, but I love that song, and wish it was performed regularly. It would segue into Auf Wiedersehen quite splendidly.

I love the album though it is arguably "heavier" sounding than the "classic" CT sound...and I like Yeah Yeah...Maybe now they are on a decent label, could they re release it?

Doesn't sound any heavier to me; good mix of hard rockers and softer songs. I see this one a lot in the used record shops. Nobody bought it except to give it away?

I remember seeing Cheap Trick at Summerfest play 8 of the songs from this album. But that was back in 1997. Lol.
And with all the loves and hates and passions just like mine...

Re-read this, and reminded how much I love reading these reviews. This really is such a great album and still sounds fresh today. Was also recently reminded how cool the video for "Say Goodbye" is...

Nice review! I will go back and listen, it has been a while, and is a great album.

Cheap Trick opened their tour for this LP in Albuquerque a few weeks before it was released, so we got to hear cuts fresh and hot off the grill!

Love this album and it's in my top 3 for them. Only song on this that I tend to skip is Shelter. I kind of wish Baby Talk/Brontasaurus made it on here instead.

nope, although with the resurgence of vinyl sales, i once asked bun if there was a chance it would be released on vinyl.  he said that there was a "good chance," but that was ten years ago.

It would make a great "Record Sale Day" release.

If they rerelease it, I hope they remaster it.

It would be silly to issue it on vinyl w/o remastering it for that specific format, but it happens all the time with disastrous results because mastering for vinyl requires different specs than mastering for CD.
