4 stars I think that this album is not very praised or "popular" for some Supertramp`s fans. I can`t hear enough commercial songs for Radio playing in this album, with the probable exception of "Lady". But it is a very good album, with most songs sung (and maybe mostly composed) by Roger Hodgson. "Easy Does it" and "Sister Moonshine" (with acoustic guitars) sound to me like a "medley" as they are "linked" and played one after the other."Ain`t nobody but me" is a very good song sung by Rick Davies, the "heaviest" song of this album with a lead guitar. "A Soapbox`s opera" has very good choral and orchestral arrangements. "Another Man`s Woman" has a very good piano by Davies. "Lady" is a very pop song, and I think it was released as a single. "Poor Boy" is sung by Davies, with a "mouth sax" in the beginning! "Just a Normal Day" is sung by both Davies and Hodgson, with good keyboard arrangements. "The Meaning" is my favourite song from this album, with "existential" lyrics, acoustic guitars (maybe 12 string) and a very good clarinet solo by John Helliwell, plus great drums by Bob Siebenberg. "Two of Us" is another acoustic guitar song with good keyboards and an orchestral arrangement.The cover design was an idea by Rick Davies, and it is a very good cover, one of my favourites.
