2. In the classic line up 1974-83 all musicians were technically perfect, no weak points.
3. In my favourite era 1974-79 all songs are very densely composed down to the last detail. Not only referring to dynamic and rhythmic change and construction, but also every single note/sound of every instrument seems to be important and fitting into the composition, no superfluous jamming around.
4. Genuine mixture of classic, rock, pop, jazz and blues. (4a. After Colosseum and Van der Graaf Generator Supertramp finally established saxophone in rock music.)
5. The live recordings of that time proved, that they were capable to play their songs on stage as perfectly as on their studio albums. (Some call it lack of improvisation, I call it perfection.)
Just referencing point 2 above I would counter that by saying 1974-present day, no weak points, all musicians tehnically perfect. Why only up to 83? Hodgson left and they got betterWink

In chronological order....it'd take too much deliberation to put them in order:

Words Unspoken
Long Road
Surely
Aries
School
Asylum
Sister Moonshine
Soapbox Opera
From Now On
Fool's Overture
Take the Long Way Home
 
Really wish Hodgson would've stuck with the band and worked out his Eye of the Storm stuff with the band....the Davies' jazzy influence and Roger's voice and ideas worked like chips and vinegar.
 
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Good bumpClap

Difficult, but here goes:

1. Asylum
2. Fools Overture
3. Logical Song
4. Crime of the Century
5. Two of Us
6.  Lord Is It Mine
7. Rudy
8. A Soapbox Opera
9. From Now On
10. Ain't Nobody But Me

It will change by this time tomorrow, but I've recently done a few 'Tramp reviews, and have thoroughly enjoyed revisiting this seminal crossover band.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Crime was my first album bought with my hard-earned cash as a newspaperboy and seduced me with that concept that seemed to be written prcisely for me.
 
Brought some pop into prog, but they were the epitome of an art rock (US sense, which meant prog rock) band with Argent
 
I was thinking: wow, what an amazing list this isShockedSmile... iI should make it mine ClapStar
 
Then I saw I quoted myself LOLEmbarrassedCool

I would add Try Again to any list.....in fact, I'd put the whole first album on the list over almost anything in the catalog.  I've broken out my 40 year old cassette copy and recommend it highly to any who doesn't already dig this gem.
