4 stars I will just say one comment taken from our great fable writer Aesopos: things a fox cannot reach(meaning the grapes hanging from above) the fox says that the grapes are not grapes but coat hangers...if you know what I mean... Breakfast In America apart from being virtually one of the best albums of the 70's it is a "fine" product of the high antagonism between the two songwriters-Mr Hodgson and Mr Davies-but it is their marginal point of it, meaning that this antagonism made them bring out their best of themselves without losing their target and that was to keep them being a band...this control was lost soon afterwards and Supertramp called it a day after the tour to support their last album Famous Last words. As for this album itself I will just say that I find it harder and harder through all the past 15 years or so to find such diachronical albums!(is there any comment about that?). When at least 8 songs in this album are from really good(Goodbye Stranger, Lord It Is Mine, Child Of Vision, Just Anther Nervous Wreck) to excellent (Gone Hoolywood, the Logical Song, Breakfast In America, Take The Long Way Home) it is rather just trying to pass a camel through a needle's eye... V i r t u a l l y a full four star album...
