4 stars WOW, what a great album, I can't believe it has only 61 reviews? Any fan of Supertramp must have this album, quintessential Supertramp sound, great songs, maybe not any hits, but like that matters to any of us anyway. Now, anyone new to Supertramp should probably look into their previous album, Crime of the Century first. Why? because Supertramps sound is very unique and Crime is a bit easier to like at first listen and it's a five star album and great piece of progressive rock anyhow. If you haven't heard Supertramp, you may not get into this album as much, especially at first listen and I don't want to turn you off to this great band.

Highlights: Sister Moonshine - great song, absolutely love the acoustic guitar, love it on any Supertramp album. It's different, but the intro here reminds me of the intro on Give A Little Bit, which I love as well. Soap Box Opera and The Meaning are also great. Every song is good though, a very consistent album.

I'm reading "total let down" referring to the aforementioned masterpiece released before Crisis. I mean, that may be so, not a TOTAL letdown, maybe a bit, but I wasn't around yet back then and I didn't listen to their albums in order released so my view is different.

4 stars, great album for any collecction, must have for Supertramp fans.

Kix | 4/5 |
