Prog Reviewer
4 stars This album is slightly inconsistent in song quality, and it all depends on who's singing which track. All of the song Roger Hodgson sings are still of a certain good quality even if ''Give a Little Bit'' is a little too poppy for my tastes. ''Fool's Overture'' suffers from too many sound bites in the beginning, but once the synth riff gets going, the track gets going excusing Hodgson's vocal limitations. The title track is a quiet highlight here as it's dynamic changes make it well worth listening to.

Unfortunately, we're also treated to a boring piano ballad in ''Downstream'' that we never really needed to hear. The Rick Davies-sung tracks are really where the inconsistencies lie. ''From Now On'' is up to par with the rest of the album even if the chorus goes on longer than we needed, but ''Lover Boy'' sounds incredibly awkward and overdramatic, even for Supertramp. Despite its shortcomings, EVEN IN THE QUIETEST MOMENTS is one of the better albums of prog with that pop crossover.

Sinusoid | 4/5 |
