4 stars For this album, Supertramp went to live to the U.S. This album is more "commercial" than previous albums, but "commercial" with good quality. "Give a liitle bit" is another acoustic guitar song by Roger Hodgson, and it was a hit in several countries. This song also has a piano played along with the guitar chords and a very good sax solo. "Lover Boy" is sung by Rick Davies, with not very interesting lyrics but with a very good "Progressive rock" arrangement. Roger Hodgson wrote (at least) two "spiritual songs" in this album: the song "Even in the Quietest Moments" has acoustic guitars, and very good wind instruments (two clarinets?) arrangements. "Downstream" is a song played alone in the piano and sung by Rick Davies, showing his brillant skills as piano player. "Babaji" is another "spiritual" or "religious" song by Roger Hodgson. "From Now On" is a song by Rick Davies, with an arrangement which includes two instruments which sound like a "melodica" (I don`t know how this instrument is called in English, but it is a little keyboard which is played with the fingers while the player blows air with his mouth into the instrument using a short tube) or accordions, sounding very "Italian" or maybe "French" too. "Fool`s Overture" is the most Progressive song in this album, but I can`t understand the meaning of the lyrics (is it another "Religious" song? I don`t know). This is a very good album, but it started the International commercial success of this band, being more accessible than the "Crisis?What Crisis"?" album.
