4 stars For a few months in 1976 this was my favorite album on Earth. Many of its songs remain favorites of mine--"The Meaning" in particular is still one of my favorite songs of all-time. "Easy Does It," "Sister Moonshine," "Lady", "Just a Normal Day," and "Two of Us" are all excellent songs though no longer on frequent rotation among my playlists. This is the album that made me fall in love with the 12-string guitar (one of the few instruments I've owned that I still have--though actually it's in one of my daughter's possessions). Also, the dual vocal stylings of Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson are really worked well here--not separately as they become on the few Supertramp albums that follow. I've read that the group was under a lot of pressure to create a follow up to Crime of the Century. Well, I think, considering the pressure, they did an admirable job. Perhaps relative to Crime and the following Even in the Quietest Moments this is only deserving of a three stars "good" rating, but to me it's at least 3.5 stars.
