Cheap Trick, Eric Tessmer

“We’re too dumb to quit,” Cheap Trick supremo Rick Nielsen recently said. “We just love to play.” Accordingly, the World’s Greatest Power-Pop Band must’ve felt like caged tigers during COVID-19 lockdown – they normally average 150 road dates annually. Hence, this trek supporting their 20th studio full-length In Another World probably feels like the orgasm ending a 15-year dry spell. The record sounds like, well, a great Cheap Trick album: Lennon and McCartney popcraft meets the raw power of early Who and Jeff Beck-era Yardbirds. Live, they’re consistently great. – Tim Stegall
