Cheap Trick 7/5/1990

Review

"Can't Stop Fallin' Into Love" began life as an instrumental, but the worthless words make the piece shine. Zander pouts and preens in prime peacock fashion, quoting trashy Rod ("the Bod") Stewart and grimy greats the Troggs. High on the platinum fumes of the glistening Lap of Luxury, the charismatic quartet seems happy and comfortable (temporarily) back on top. Slipping love letters and suicide notes under a "Stone Free" bassline and glossy adult contemporary sheen, this track is positively Cheap Trick at their subversive best; "Can't Stop Fallin' Into Love" also ranks as one of the band's biggest (actually reaching number 12 on the Billboard charts) but least remembered (erroneously condemned as a "Flame" retread). Uber-overseer Richie Zito overstuffs B-side "You Drive, I'll Steer" with annoyingly horny keys. Cheap Trick nonetheless enjoys coughing up this glib hairball, a nutty left-fielder whose limited high points include references to Cheap Trick's golden period and Fleetwood Mac. Sometimes it seems the zany Cheap Trick gets off on the flip more than the front. ~ Doug Stone
