4 stars This is such a great disc I don't even know where to begin. The leadoff track for starters almost sounds like something from The Wall; but, when "School" kicks in it's undeniably Supertramp. Hearing Davies and Hodgson interact is something I really miss on Brother Where You Bound.

Scattered throughout are staples on classic rock radio ("Bloody Well Right", "Dreamer", etc.); but this album is full of great songs you NEVER hear on FM radio. "Crime Of The Century" and "Asylum" are dark and brooding and full of anger. Especially love the haunting piano outtro on the title track.

This album is beautifully produced and arranged. Stands up very well today, which is a testament to Supertramp. The fact they are excluded from the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame only proves what a fraud that establishment is.

E-Dub | 4/5 |
