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).

2 stars Same again for this marketing hype I am afraid. Dedicated fans will have the songs already and the studio albums speak volumes for the wonder that they produced so it does not matter how much money they rake in releasing these it will not convince anyone that these albums are indeed anything better than ' Good'. I strongly recommend any studio album by Supertramp over these persistent disappointments.Going out on a limb here...' Gone Hollywood' takes the cake.

4 stars See my review for "Very Best of Supertramp Vol 1". The only difference between these two are that this one dives a bit deeper into the discography of Supertramp and collects more of their less known stuff. A bit odd put together but that's not an unusual case for compilations like this, however, the track selections are fine and includes classics like "Gone Hollywood" and the essential "Fool's Overture", the latter being the opus from the "Even In The Quietest Moments..." release back in 1977. Again, this one only merits three stars, but again I have to add another star for it's nostalgic importance for me.

3 stars As its title suggests, this is a sister collection to the excellent The Very Best Of Supertramp. However, while it does a great job of plugging up the gaps by giving us another 14 tracks from the masters of progressive pop, the truth is that most of the goodies were snapped by the original compilation. Thus while it's great to have if you've already picked up the first volume, this one doesn't necessarily cut the mustard on its own.

On the downside you have Lady, Oh Darling, Just Another Nervous Wreck, (the Barry Manilow-esque!) Downstream, the doo-wop effort My Kind Of Lady and the forgettable post-Hodgson effort Free As A Bird, which are passable pieces of pop that don't match the standards of Supertramp's better songs. A Soapbox Opera, on the other hand, is pretty creative but just doesn't strike the right chord with me.

On the positive side, you have one of Supertramp's greatest prog moments in Fool's Overture, which overcomes the considerable handicap of a cheesy synth sound to prove its class. My favourite track here is probably the vaguely psychedelic Even In The Quietest Moments (the track) which with its phased vocals and pastoral background is a great if atypical song. On the other hand Waiting So Long, Gone Hollywood and the mournful Don't Leave Me Now belong to that class of Supertramp epic that moves seamlessly between light pop and heavy rock. I should also say that there is an air of desperation about both If Everyone Was Listening and Babaji that prompts me to reach for the fast-forward button (even if both are decent songs).

Supertramp's brand of progressive pop may not be to everyone's tastes, and I would still suggest you start with the first volume or the Crime Of The Century album before coming to this one, but I must say (with apologies to the purists) that I'm pretty content with just the two "Best Of" volumes. ... 53% on the MPV scale

3 stars This CD is the perfect companion of "Best Of, Volume 1".

We get a lot of "Even..." tracks : with the title track, "Babiji", "Just Another Wreck", "Downstream" and finally, the great "Fool's Overture" (maybe the best and most elaborate 'Tramp song).

Here is my comment about this song in my review for the album : this is a true epic (forget about "Try Again" from their first album). Long keyboard intro (raise the level of your audio system to capture all the elements) !). This is a pure British (prog) song : Big Ben and Churchill on the same track ("we will never surrender") ! The song really kicks after this three minutes quiet intro. The beat goes on you are transported into another dimension from then on : glorious bass and keys work. Vocals start after 5' minutes 20" : probably the most beautiful 'Tramp vocal session. So delicate, intimate : one has the impression Hodgson sings just for you. I was lucky to see him live (in solo) and the emotional feeling one gets in his concert is HUGE. It is perfectly rendered here in this song.

It almost fully completes "Crime" with the very good "If Everyone Was Listening", provides two very good tracks from "Crisis" with "Lady" and "The Soapbox Opera" (a wonderful song).

The weaker numbers come (no surprise) from "Famous Lost Words" and "Free As A Bird".

All in all, if you are not a big Supertramp fan, these two compilations are great for you : you'll get most of their four legendary albums represented here (maybe too little from Crisis ?).

Three stars.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Having released the "Vol. One" of this compilation two years before, here it is, the second volume from "The Very Best of Supertramp". If the first volume was more a "Greatest Hits package", this second volume could be more interesting for the most dedicated fans of the band. At least, this second volume includes one song from their "Free as a Bird album" (the album title song), but again, nothing from their first two albums. But, were "Waiting So Long" and "Don`t Leave Me Now" from their "...famous last words..." album the best from that album? In my opinion, no, they weren`t. I think that "C`est Le Bon" and "Bonnie" deserved more to be in this compilation.

This "Volume Two" could be less interesting for the causal listener but more interesting for the more dedicated fans of this band, in my opinion. If you want a better compilation of the music from this band, more complete in historical detail, look for their "Retrospectacle" compilation.

5 stars A very good album. Fantastic songs like Waiting So Long, Even in the quietest moments, Fools Overture and Downstream. If you ask me, i'll say this album is even better than the very best of volume 1. I love it, the more you listening this album, the more you'll love it! ... (read more)
