3 stars Nice "Best of"

Well, lately i haven`t been really inspired in writing reviews, yesterday i wrote one and it probably returned my love for writing, and i decided to go through some old albums i have and had not listened for a while, this compillation, well not only the compillation but the band itself has never been one of my favorites, actually i hardly listen to Supertramp but i wanted to listen to them once more after a big gap, so as you see i have started with the easiest way, i mean reviewing a compillation is always easy because you dont need to be deep in your remarks and comments, just talk a bit of it`s content, hghlights, up and downs or something relatively easy, like a brief introduction or something i dont know.

So i found my "The Very Best of Supertramp" album and decided to give it a listen, and to my surprise i enjoyed it , as i said above they are not close to be in my top 50 favorite bands i have always considered them as a rock-pop with a bit prog band, like Styx for example but for some strange reason i prefer Styx, anyway this album features 15 songs, i believe their most birlliant moments and well known songs are placed here, so any person who is not familiar with this band, could have a nice introduction here, i will be honest to you, i listened this album before listening to any of their studio albums.

The songs here come from in the majoity from their Crime of the Century, with songs also from Even in the Quietest Moments, Breakfast in America and Crisis what Crisis if im not wrong, it lasts more than 75 minutes, so if you like the band you can have a very pleasant hour and a quarter of music, if not, then you can skip some songs.

My favorites are in the first half of the album "School", "The Logical Song" and "Rudy", so the second part of this best of becomes a bit boring and repetitive to me, though "Cannonball" is a very nice song, the last one here.

I will say 3 stars for me, a good compillation, it could have been better if the music were better and if i were a Supertramp`s follower, but that is not possible.

Enjoy it, anyway!
