3 stars The one with the other track from "Crime of the century"

Having already included six of the eight tracks on "Crime of the century" on volume 1, that album is only represented by one track on volume two. The only track from COTC which does not appear on either collection is therefore "Asylum".

With Supertramp's singles and most accessible tracks already gathered together on said volume one, the tracks here are generally their better album tracks. With so many fine tracks available, it would be easy to question individual selections.

The highlight is undoubtedly "Fools overture" from "Even in the quietest moments" a true masterpiece of symphonic prog. "A soapbox opera" represents the best track on the slightly disappointing "Crisis what crisis", while "Free as a bird" is the nominal inclusion from the post Roger Hodgson era.

The best of Supertramp from a commercial point of view was swept up in volume one. Here we are starting to delve deeper into the album tracks, and it quickly gets to the point where it would be as well simply to buy the original albums (now re-released in remastered format).
