"Special One" is just that. Put it in, crank it up, and get ready for Cheap Trick at their finest.
However, the recorded version just doesn't rock. It's great that they wanted to avoid sounding the same, but this new sound is not the guitar rock CT is known for. I don't see what people like about this album... I really enjoy Scent of a Woman (classic CT), Sorry Boy (All Shook Up type paranoia) and Special One (gentle, beautiful song unlike anything before), but the remainder of the album is so lackluster and boring, I don't want to hear the 3 tracks I enjoy (I'm a listen-to-CD's-start-to-finish-guy). I can only imagine the fans who love this CD have either aged and mellowed, or mindlessly love any CT they can get their hands on. CT remains to be my favorite band, but this album ...
The included DVD, however, is alone worth the price of buying this.
DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR: FIND A COPY OF THE STEVE ALBINI RE-RECORDED 'IN COLOR' ALBUM, OR THE 3-CD OUTTAKES FROM CT97 ALBUM. YOU'LL BE MUCH MORE SATISFIED WITH THAT.
Don't bother with the Tokyo to You DVD, although these songs sound better there, you do not get to see a single song played in it's entirety.
