RE: The New Album
They should stick to what they do the best- power pop.
And with all the loves and hates and passions just like mine...

I agree... it is both. 

It's their appeal for me and downfall in the music industry where you have to have a "sound" and fit neatly into a category.

The industry wants to be able to put you into a neat little box, but thankfully CT has resisted that for most of their career. I'm not interested in bands where every song sounds the same. That's why the comparison with the Beatles doesn't bother me - like the Fab Four, they do many different kinds of songs, and each album has its own unique flavor.

I'm just grateful they still play like they mean it and still make new records.
The number of people who have said that there is no point on releasing new records just saddens me.

100% exactly true. Cheap Trick still pounds out new music even this late in their career. Look at many of their contemporaries- they never release new music but are reduced to being a 'greatest hits' act with a revolving door of musicians (many of which aren't original members of the band). Plus Cheap Trick's new albums aren't stale and half-assed. Cheap Trick is as relevant and vital today as at any point in their career, imo. When the band makes 'heavy' rock or not, there is a youthful energy behind the music. Cheap Trick could've stopped making new music years ago and have taken the easy, lazy route like many of their 70's peers. I also think that with Cheap Trick being inducted into the HOF, it lit a spark underneath them- or renewed the spark. I liked BZCH, and I think the new album will be just as good if not better. And it is cool the band is releasing new music every 12 months or so just like they did in their early years.

Rumour has it Rick said at the concert on the 24th in Windsor that the new album is called "We're All Alright". Has anyone else heard anything?

I know, right? Don't want the band to sound like themselves. Must need them sound like Foo Fighters or Metallica or something.

or their first album or maybe even have the songs recorded live, like Neil Young did with Rust Never Sleeps, and take the crowd noise out thus capturing their live sound, which is heavy.  Their version of She Said She Said, I do believe was recorded like Rust Never Sleeps.  I am sure when they say heavy, they are not talking about say, "Rock All Night", or "Wild Wild Women".   Big Grin

No, it's going to be an album of death metal.

If the best they can do are songs like "Rock All Night" and "Wild Wild Women", it would just be death.
