4 stars Todd Rundgrens FAITHFUL is a fine fine record. Side one is full of cover songs from some of the greatest artists of our time and each cover is done almost perfectly and faithful to the original... Some sound even better than their originals if you can believe that. Good Vibrations by the Beach boys never sounded better. Hendrix's old If 6 was 9 is out of this world. Happenings 10 years time ago is just plain beautifully done... There was a time when I was younger that I would play Todds versions before playing the originals... Thats how well they were executed and recorded.

Side Two is all Todd Rundgren and all of the songs are fantastic except for Boogies. Love of the common man is the standout track sounding as if it could have been on Todds INITIATION album. Black and White and when I pray are also outstanding tracks and the verb to love is wonderful. The recording engineering on every track is crystal clear and pristine on my vinyl copy. (I have never heard a CD of this material).

It would be difficult to give a 5 star rating to an album with so many cover songs on it only because so many other great musicians works inhabit this recording besides Todds. But if you had to just rate side 2 of Todds works then a 5 star rating it would get from me. An outstanding album that I am surprised no- one has reviewed yet
