2 stars One must agree that after "Supertramp" which was not really exciting, what they deliver here is probably the worse of their carreer (we'll have to wait for very long years to find other poor Supertramp albums).

The front cover is probably what's mostly will be remembered. The chest on the album sleeve belonged to Marian Hollier, a twenty-six year old woman . She came from Bristol and was paid 45 for the photo. The album cover caused moral indignation in the early seventies with many record shops refusing to display it. Letters of complaint were printed by UK music papers like in the Melody Maker. In the U.S. some copies had two little stars glued onto the sleeve to cover the "naughty" areas.

A few tracks are worth though : "Travelled", "Remember" (a good rocking song song with strong sax somewhat precursor for "Rudy") and "Forever" (a true Supertramp song) while "Your Poppa Don't Mind", "Potter" and "Aries" are parts of the poorest tracks ever produced by the band.

Three out of ten, really. Let's upgrade it to wo stars (but save your money for better albums to come).
