4 stars Iīve chosen Supertrampīs Crisis for my first review īcause looking at top 500 iīve found this at nš 497. Sounds like a pretty number and of course you are thinking "this one gonna give them five stars so it can improve on the list". In fact i give 4 stars to this record and being absolutely ignorant about how the algorythm works i fear in the next list this gonna be out of top 500.Who cares? In my opinion Supertramp has always been playing in the frontiers of the so called classic prog, al least in their first four albums. Crisis has the handicap of being the next one after "Crime of the century", but even with this handicap i think is a very enyojable album, with a fist of very good songs. Thatīs the key: itīs an album of SONGS; not epic pieces nor instrumental smashing solos, not an concept album not rythm changes...ok probably itīs not exactly a prog album. But you can enjoy the singular ambient of A soapbox opera, the special technique of Rick Davies at the piano outro of Another manīs woman, how pleasant work of JA Hellywell in poor boy or the melanchollic beauty of Just a normal day. They are good enough musicians and this is a good collection on songs to sing along. Probably 3,5 stars would fit, but i have a good day so 4 and direct to the 490.
