There was no richness or dynamism about them, and while there was the occasional hint of something exciting, the overall atmosphere reeked of a band who were struggling to come to terms with what they should be doing in the 21st Century. After roaring back with hit single The Flame a couple of years earlier, the band felt they had found the right path forward. And the album in general had a style that was predicated on the chart topping The Flame. In anyone else's hands this what be what Christmas albums usually are: unwanted and swiftly forgotten.
Cheap Trick have never been overly fond of this album. Despite the fact that it represented a stirring commercial fightback for them. The problem for the band was that they felt the label dictated too much to them, bringing in outside writers to try and make them more viable.
The plan worked brilliantly, but having to collaborate with other people did restrict their usual vibe. This album showed the band were far from jaded, and were reinvigorated to prove they were still masters of the powerpop field. Getting Todd Rundgren in to produce this album was a stroke of genius.
