Album 365: Day 207 - Cheap Trick - Heaven Tonight
Favorite tracks: Surrender, California Man, Stiff Competition
Sleeper tracks: How Are You
I did not own this album growing up. I first purchased the record after I moved to Minneapolis. It's a pretty decent record but I don't like it as much as most Cheap Trick fans do (arguing that it's the best album by the band). The songs as a whole are better than In Color but I enjoyed specific songs on In Color a lot more. It doesn't touch Dream Police for balls and substance.
I wonder how many teenage girls made out with this album cover back in the late 70s.
Stupid trivia: This album was the first ever to feature a 12-string bass.
