5 stars This? A crime? I don't think so... Maybe it's a crime against bad music.

This one of the first album my father presented to me when I young (along with Dark side of the moon). During the rest of my childhood, I was totally crazy about those two albums and I can say that Crime of Century has aged perfectly in me (can't say the same about DSotM but that's another story). I still like it as much as when I first discovered it and all of the songs in it I know by note. Poppy? Yeah! Do I care? Not at all. The album consists of a bunch of songs which all had the potential to be radio hits. Some of them were. That doesn't keep this album from having a lot of prog elements and from being a masterpiece in its own genre.

The piano solo in School, the catchy greatness of Bloody Well Right and Dreamer, the wonderful outros of Hide in your shell and Rudy, the piano riff of Crime of the century... This album is great from the start to the end. The vocal arrangement are top-notch as always with Supertramp and the music is really good.

A very unique band in my opinion presents us with a very unique masterpiece. I think it's an important part of any rock (and not necessarily prog) collection and I recommend it to everyone.

Short and sweet! 5 stars!
