4 stars Ahhh, Supertramp.

I was glad to hear these guys were getting back together, cause these guys did make some great songs.

This album is quite good, there is some great songs, some not so great, some in between, its a mixed bag of nuts really.

The bits that annyoed me was they let Roger sing too many songs. I just don't like the timbre of his voice and does not even compare to the power of Richards vocals.

All in all, the good overlooks the bad.

1. School - Amazing build up on atmosphere and some amazing instrumental work. Pure prog at it's best. 9/10

2. Bloody Well Right - Don't like Richards vocals too much in this song. Other than that, it's a kick ass song and the chorus is pretty catchy. 9/10

3. Hide In Your Shell - Pretty interesting song with a nice chorus and some great vocals from Roger. 8/10

4. Asylum - This song just isn't my cup of tea. I just don't get it. The piano work is pretty cool though. 6/10

5. Dreamer - This song always makes me smile. It's crazy, but in a good way. 9/10

6. Rudy - Amazing instrumental work and Richards vocals are tolerable. Yay 8/10

7. If Everyone Was Listening - Beautiful compostion. Amazing piano and clarinet work. Very musical like. The orchestration is really beautifull. 9/10

8. Crime Of The Century - Pretty cool way to end the album. The instrumental work is phenomanal. 8/10

CONCLUSION: Not their best, but a great start.
