Album 365: Day 159: Cheap Trick - In Color

Cheap Trick
In Color

Favorite tracks: Hello There, Big Eyes, So Good To See You
Sleeper tracks: I Want You To Want Me, Southern Girls

A great Cheap Trick album.  I was so hung up on the Dream Police record growing up that I didn't realize there was more great stuff by the band.

I honestly (and I'm embarrassed to say it) didn't hear this whole record until working at Oarfin Records.  We were working with a local producer who was doing a cover of "I Want You..." with a girl.  Back in 2002, we had to scour Limewire for an mp3 of the song to reference.  I was totally clueless to the studio track of that song.  I only knew of the Budokan version.  Even after I picked the CD up a couple years later, I didn't listen to it all the way through.  It's not my favorite Cheap Trick album by any means but there are some great rock songs on it.

I think the album art is fantastic.
