2 stars From 1982, SWING TO THE RIGHT is Utopia's take on what was going on in America politically during the Reagan years. While I agree with the sentiments here, the power-pop approach of Utopia at this time offers nothing new musically besides the song ideas. Typical 80's music of Utopia included catchy tunes, good but simple melodies, sometimes interesting lyrics, fine band playing and vocal harmonies,etc..but nothing that screams "PROG!!". RA and their first release were distant memories by the time SWING TO THE RIGHT was released. While Todd and the guys made some fine power-pop during the 80's, it is not enough to sustain my interest. SWING TO THE RIGHT is better than TRIVIA, but way below ADVENTURES IN UTOPIA. 2 stars for political effort.
