4 stars A very polished effort of Supertramp. When I bought the CD, it was a great surprise. Far better than its immediate predecessors, Slowmotion has more cohesion and musical quality. It has a jazzy feeling all the time, with many horns arrangements by the master John Hellywell, and it is great. Some tracks are really great and in a same level than the golden years of Supertramp. I think that Slowmotion shows the real incidence of Rick Davies in the Supertramp musical concept over the years.

The best tracks:

Bee in your bonnet: An addictive and unconventional track, which never tires me. Superb. In the vein of the classical Supertramp.

Over you: A jazzy ballad where the horns arrangements are fantastic. Pure Supertramp in their best shape.

Dead man's blues: The one which get the album in the progressive world. Davies sings in a powerfull way and then the track gets into a long instrumental interlude dominated by the great John Hellywell with a delicious jazz rock passage.

Slowmotion: Another classic with a good piano base and a great melody line. Much feeling here.

Tenth Avenue breakdown: The longest one and in the progressive way too, with good instrumental parts.

The rest are good too but not in the same level. Four stars
