Cheap Trick’s 18th studio album, We’re All Alright!, is widely being hailed as one of the Rockford, Illinois, quartet’s best records since their late-’70s/early-’80s heyday, but it isn’t as consistently satisfying and adventurous as 2003’s underrated classic, Special One. Nonetheless, apart from several generic tracks, the record has some stirring moments, ranging from the fast, punk intensity of “Nowhere” to the more bombastic yet grandly majestic Beatlesque ballad “The Rest of My Life.” There’s a little Dylanish pop on the jangling “She’s Alright” and a charming spectral glassiness on the acoustic-based “Floating Down.” Foreigner haven’t released anything new this decade, but they received a jolt of energy when original singer Lou Gramm and fellow founding members Al Greenwood and Ian McDonald briefly rejoined the band at a recent gig in New York.
