Classic Rock Bottom

As good as the new Cheap Trick album is, very few people that still listen to free radio stations will get to hear any of it.  It's an unfortunate sign of our times, but it is what it is.  The same thing was beginning to happen back in 1994 when Woke Up With A Monster was released.  Free radio was still playing some rock, but it was already getting difficult for many of the band's we loved from the 70's and 80's to get played.  Woke Up didn't sniff the Top 40, nor did any of the singles released from the album.  That crowd just wasn't interested.  Plus there was a lack of promotion from the record company.  But that doesn't make it a bad album.  Like Busted before it, I think it's quite underrated.  For me, there isn't a bad song here (well, You're All I Wanna Do is a bit cheesy).  It's an easy album to listen to from front to back.  I don't care for the album cover though or the font change on the band's logo.  One song I'd like to mention here is Tell Me Everything.  It's a cryin' shame this song was not promoted and played on the radio.  It should have been a big hit for the band.
