3 stars This is by far the most Supertrampish work ever recorded aside from their own production. But was it a surprise?

As far as I'm concerned, I've always preferred Hodgson compositions, even if Davies also did his great part of the job. In terms of singing, there is no doubt that Hodgson is catchier and much more pleasant. At least, this is my opinion.

Fans of the band could only be extremely pleased to have listened to such a work back then but in those days, the Tramp wasn't any longer a concern of mine and I only discovered this album a few years ago.

And the feeling is pretty good even if the popish sound which is present all the way through might be irritating sometimes. But this direction was already taken by the band in their later releases while both Richard and Roger were together.

My favourite track is the long closing number which has a definite feel of ''Fool's Overture''. Maybe therefore.I guess. It builds crescendo and a wonderful and hypnotizing vocalize part lead to a very emotional closing section.

Three stars for this good album.
