3 stars If you listen closely to the songs on this album, you'll see blueprints for some of their finest works that will follow. Let me break them down : Crime : Potter - with its' lyrical bite & guitars it's the harder brother to Bloody well Right, Rosie had everything planned hints at the melodies of Hide in Your Shell & Everyone was listening .Crisis what Crisis - Travelled & Coming home to see you would fit into the taut & tense atmosphere; this last song would also not have been out of place on Quietest Moments along with Forever for their languid melodies; Breakfast could easily have included Remember, Times have changed & Friend in need, without one noticing a change in the poppier & more up mood of this album, & Your Poppa don't mind would seem the type of song Rick Davies would be writing during Famous Last Words. The album closer - Aries, almost seems like a holdover from the debut, which seems to get a higher rating from people who weren't big Supertramp fans. I've seen one review give a comparison to King Crimson ??? for one song. So, if you a big Supertramp fan, and wish they could put out that one more album together (Rick & Roger), check this one out. It surprised me, as I had avoided it for the longest time because it wasn't the same musicians as on later albums. Not a masterpiece, but we can see the pieces coming together.
