Beautiful Scarlet
4 stars Sometimes I forget how much I like Supertramp. Such beautiful music, so gentle and memorable. This album is five stars for me on a good day.

Anyways this album is different then some others I'll review as it is personally quite significant. I first heard this album at around fifteen, I really liked it listening to it on repeat at school all the time. I hated school and didn't have any friends, this album was my one respite from a dull life. Most of the times lyrics are something I don't listen to, here an exception occurs. The lyrics of the music are touching, "Nothing To Show For Love Has Never Been" "Why Bruise A Heart that isn't broken, it can't be broken, it can be broken." In short the lyrics on this album by Richard Palmer are excellent and deeply touching lyrics that spoke to me when I was young.

Overall this is an excellent album that manages to successfully provide intrigue through a mix of haunting ballads, angsty tracks, short interlude and a powerful epic. Can't fault the album and I listen to it a lot, it has great elements and I'd recommend over any other Supertramp album.

Beautiful Scarlet | 4/5 |
