Heart of the Matter
3 stars Nice pairing the one that we are considering.

I have to say that the greatest progressive value is in the side B to be found. "Even in the Quietest Moments", taken from the eponymous 1977 album, presents marvellous natural ambiance in the beginning, great twelve string acoustic guitar arpeggios preparing for the melody sung by Roger Hodgson, and gorgeous touches by John Anthony Helliwell on clarinet.

"Goodbye Stranger", coming from Supertramp's 1979 album "Breakfast in America", is a good light-hearted pop song sung by Rick Davies, with a catchy chorus in falsetto. Pay attention to the nice electric guitar duty reaching the end.

Heart of the Matter | 3/5 |
