Trouble At The Henhouse usually elicits mixed responses. “Ahead By A Century”, “Springtime In Vienna” and “Gift Shop” are classics. Some might say that makes the album too frontloaded. Overproduced? Maybe at times. Solid, doubtless.
To me, there’s a real diamond in the rough towards the end. “Let’s Stay Engaged” is one of my favorite Hip ballads. Honestly, it’s a strange song and I can see why it may take other some time to warm to it. Great though, and maybe now this deep cut is my favorite track from the album.
