5 stars Supertramp found their sound on this album, as well as their most successful lineup. It's with this formula that they would become one of the major acts of the seventies.

This album is the moct consistent of the group, balancing proggy pop with powerful ballads. And the two most famous tracks, Bloody Well Right and Dreamer, as good as they are, are actually some of the weakest material on the album.

Special mention must be made for Rick Davies' Asylum. The song begins as if it's going to be just another maudlin ballad, but builds with such intensity that it becomes the most powerful piece on the album.

While Hodgson and Davies came close to the majesty of this album with some other songs, they never created an entire album like this again.

4.5 stars, rounded up.

Evolver | 5/5 |
