4 stars Second work of Supertrampīs most stable line up; and in my humble opinion, it only loses in quality for Crime Of The Century and The Early Years.

After releasing Crime Of The Century, it would be very difficult to Davies&Hodson, bandīs creative core, to repeat a fantastic job they have performed before. It is true, as results presented in Crisis ? What Crises show us; but on the other hand they achieved a very strong job, the last one I would put no intense flaws.

Creation success now changed, I prefer Hodsonīs stuff than Daviesīs one. Easy Does It, but mainly The Soapbox Opera and Two Of Us makes this a work to be deeply respected by prog appreciators. Rick Davies best job here is the excellent Another Manīs Woman. This song ends with an instrumental part which asks for a jamming that could make a live version last for more than ten minutes. I never heard any live version of Another Manīs Woman, but I really see this as the best opportunity for jamming the band made since It's A Long Road. Another song I enjoy very much is Just A Normal Day, with its vocal lines deeply and nicely shared by Roger and Rick; and also with its memorable crooning taste offered to us.

This is a strong four stars. Nevermore Supertramp would present something so solid even in the very appreciated Even In The Quietest Moments. But this is already another review?
