3 stars There is so much that I don't like about this album, but I confess that there are still some good songs on it none the less.

"Gone Hollywood" really makes me cringe when I hear the background vocals that are so high, almost chipmunk like.The sax is great though. "The Logical Song" is about as commercial as you can get and I know it sounds absurd, but please tell me why I like this. More hit songs with "Goodbye Stranger" and "Breakfast In America" the latter is quite funny. "Oh Darling" features some good piano melodies.

"Take the Long Way Home" features some more amazing sax that lets you know right away that this is SUPERTRAMP. "Lord Is It Mine" is a ballad that has a full sound after 2 minutes. "Just Another Nervous Wreck" is more bombastic, with the drums taking a more prominant role. The last two songs really don't do anything for me.The latter sounds so eighties with the electronic sounding drums.

For me this record is very inconsistant, but was huge because of 4 big commercial hits. I would rate this behind the three previous studio albums. 3 stars.
