Should've quit while they were on top and stopped at Brother. This is the album too much, totally uninspired, dispirited, introducing the replacement to Hodgson and, with all due respect, those shoes were too big for anybody to fill. Only the aptly-titled An Awful Thing To Waste is worthy of the previous albums (and even then, I'm lenient), as it is reminiscent of the Cannonball groove in its middle section. How could the brilliant Davies-composed Brother Where You Bound album be followed by this insipid AOR-aimed album that came with the now-old trick of having four or five different colored sleeves. Actually FAAB did spawn a minor hit in the song of the insignificant I'm Begging You. Not only is it uninspired, but it is also the only Supertramp album that allows now-dated instrumental effects. Best avoided at all costs as they manafged to do much worde that IS and FLW, which should give you an idea how bad this is..
