3 stars This is a superbly produced album. I'm sorry, but that's the best thing I can say about it.

Sure, there are some nice pop songs on the album, but really nothing that reaches the heights of "Crime Of The Century", or even "Even In The Quietest Moments". I'm sure it was the simplification of the songs that helped make this album such a commercial success.

To me, it's Roger Hodgson songs that make the album listenable. On his tracks, where it seems that all of the hits came from, Hodgson at least makes an attempt to spice up the arrangements (just a bit), with woodwinds and keyboard play. Rick Davies' songs tend to me more low key ballads. This stylistic split might be an indication of the rift that split Hodgson & Davies after the tour for this album.

It's a listenable album, but no way is it Supertramp's best.

Evolver | 3/5 |
