3 stars Still classic Supertramp album, released between two their best ever albums - "Crime Of The Century" and "Even In The Quietest Moments". I believe it wasn't easy to release equally strong album after the "Crime...".

So - the result is not bad, but just too soft (even for Supertramp), too unfocused, but still with few great songs and very Supertrampish atmosphere. I believe we all love best Supertramp songs not because they are great experimentalists or complex-proggy musicians. They know how to play great songs somewhere in between of soft-rock and art-pop, with very "their" vocals, arrangements and atmosphere.

And all these ingredients you will find on "Crisis.." . Possibly - not is such concentrated form as on band's best albums, but from very first sounds you will recognize - it's Supertramp.

Not their best release, but really better than few early and few late albums. Average "classic" Supertramp album, not the best place to start for newcomers, but good enough release for band's fans.
