Prog Reviewer
3 stars After the "serious" progressive music of "Brother Were You Bound", Supertramp recorded this album, more "pop-R&B-blues-Dance" musically oriented than "Brother...". I like this album even if it is not very progressive. I like every song, but with "Free as a Bird", "It`s Alright", "Not the Moment" and " An Awful Thing to Waste" being my favourites. It is an album made for "fun" listening, not for "serious" listening. Some progressive bands did some very good commercial albums like this, even if this album wasn`t very successful in the charts. Another thing that I don`t understand is why some people made "heroes and central creative forces" from former members of bands. Supertramp could exist without Roger Hodgson and could make good records without him (the same as Genesis without Peter Gabriel, The Doors without Jim Morrison, Pink Floyd without Roger Waters, etc.).
