4 stars After their 1979 commercial peak with "Breakfast In America", Supertramp returned with "...Famous Last Words..." in 1982, A darker and slightly more melancholic release. You can hear that the band isn't as happy anymore, mainly because that Vocalist/Guitarist/Keyboardist Roger Hodgson wasn't quite satisfyed with the band at that time, which resulted his departure from the band in 1983. The opener, "Crazy" is a great tune, with very catchy verses and chours and is among the best tracks here. "Know Who You Are" is a beautiful and sad acoustic ballad by Hodgson which nearly brings me to tears everytime I hear it. But the peak of this album is the two last tracks, which are among Supertramp's best tracks from the 80's!

The rest is good, only dragged down by "It's Raining Again", which is rather irretating!

This one is mostly for fans though. Though you could always give it a try if you have heard some of their other albums. Me personally, give it 4 stars. Very good album, imo.

Bj-1 | 4/5 |
