4 stars Compared to Breakfast in America, Even in the quietest moments, Crisis- what crisis, Crime of the Century, this album is slightly weak-- but not very weak. Its certainly way too stronger than Indelibly Stamped and definitely the best last album of this great band. Off course if Roger Hodgeson continued, this statement would have been different. The fact is, after this album-- Supertramp is dead to me because of Roger's departure. I have no comments about Rick's works except that most of his work sucks (other than those in Crime of the century). The opening track is not a great tune, but its not only lively, it has a great lyrics, plus an ever-soothing voice. We all know its Raining Again was a big radio hit and this song is still retro-popular. Know Who You Are and C'Est le Bon share the same style, built around acoustic guitar. Don't Leave Me Now is Roger's last Piano-riff song, very melodious and nice. Its an irony that after this song, Roger left the band himself.
Sharier | 4/5 |
