3 stars From the book of the same name

"The autobiography of Supertramp" offers a good cross section of the band's better known work. It rightly concentrates on their most successful period when Roger Hodgson was with them, but also includes one track, "Cannonball", recorded after he left.

Their two most successful albums "Crime of the century" and "Breakfast in America" provide the bulk of the tracks, with the singles taken from them being well to the fore. Two of the longer, more progressive tracks, from COTC, "Rudy" and the wonderful "Hide in your shell" appear. Having got so used to hearing the tracks in the sequence they appear on the original album, hearing them out of context here can be a bit disconcerting.

This album offers no surprises, and fans of Supertramp will already have all the tracks in their original form. This is however a fine collection of their more commercial works. Do not however assume it to be a complete collection of their best works. The title is a reference to the source of the band's name, the book "The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp" by William H. Davies.

2 stars It seems that releasing numerous compilation albums from the same band have become a trend over the years, but also a rather irretating clichè. Though this was the first Supertramp compilation released there's no need for it now ever since the two "Very Best of Supertramp" volumes was released in 1994, and they're both a much better representation of the bands most known work. Of course, this compilation does have slight collectors value if you find a vinyl copy but don't even bother track down the CD of it (titled 'Classics Vol. 9') unless you are a true fanatic of this band.

3 stars I normally avoid reviewing compilations because usually the labels hungry for fresh money from bands that left their best days in the past, focus in the more commercial songs rather than in the most challenging stuff, and this album is not the exception to the general rule.

Maybe the problem is that the title "The Autobiography of SUPERTRAMP" is too pompous, being that it's really a "Greatest Hits" because except "Crime of the Century", Give a Little Bit" and "Even in the Quietest moments" we find stuff from SUPERTRAMP POP albums and poppy songs from their early and more Progressive releases.

But it's not a bad option, the selection is pretty good except for It's Raining Again" and the awful "Cannonball" where I miss the compositional skills of the usually annoying voice of Roger Hodgson, until those tracks that gladly were placed in the end making easier to avoid them, the album flows gently and fulfills its purpose which is to entertain.

Won't review three songs being that this has been done repeatedly in the studio albums and it's unnecessary for people familiar with them but wanting to know if his compilation is worth the 7 or 8 bucks they will have to expend (BTW: It's worth).

I usually play this good even when not remotely Prog compilation during summer, when driving to the beach with people who won't enjoy the music I normally play when alone without being insulted and saves me from listening the boring mainstream that my ex- girlfriends used to force me to play.

Three stars for a good and entertaining album with no pretensions and leaves the listener with a smile in the face after passing a nice moments with catchy and simple music.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars For some time, during the late 80's and early 90's this compilation was the only way to get some Supertramp songs in the CD format at a reasonable price in Brazil. So it was quite popular, since Supertramp was big in my country. However, it does not contain any unreleased material, nor live tracks or anything interesting or unavailable on their original albums. They do contain their most well known songs and some (Rudy, Crime of The Century and Hide In Your Shell) that were not singles. At 67 minutes, it was a good buy at the time, I guess, but it did not make justice to this great band. Many key songs are missing, especially if yo want to get their most pregressive numbers (like Fool's Overture).

This a kind of hits only and even then some are not included (like Babaji, what a shame!). I can recommend this album to anyone but the casual listener who wants to get the radio hits and the occasional good CD track here and there. There are better, more complete Supertramp compilations nowadays, though.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars A Supertramp album is always likely to be "non-essential" in a prog collection, and a supertramp compilation even less-so.

But there's nothing wrong with this. You wouldn't have found yourself saying "Oh god, not another Supertramp compilation" in 1987 because this was the first one. And I generally don't have any problems with compilations, regardless of how commercially-inclined they are; what bothers me is why distributors insist on having more than one for a band. Some record companies release another almost-identical compilation annually, just to pay the bills. But that's not an issue here.

Supertramp's output is consistently high-quality and they are very good single-generators. This makes a compilation such as 'The Autobiography...' very nice to listen to, especially when like myself, you are only a casual fan. Album greats are mixed with famous hits, and some lesser-known stuff. It's all very generic but inoffensive. I'm sure a lot of middle-aged couples have this disc wedged in a small CD pile in their car glove-boxes, coming out every so often for a friendly spin during a long drive. Maybe it's the soundtrack to their lives. Or maybe they have one song which "belongs to them". In any case, this mediocre compilation has served it's purpose.
