3 stars Supertramp foollowed up their breakthrough (and ultimately their best) album, "Crime Of The Century", with this, a solid but more unassuming album. After having hits with Bloody Well Right and Dreamer, Rick Davies, Roger Hodgson and their band followed the pop path, eliminating most (but not all) of the prog elements from their music.

Unlike "Crime", the best moments on this album have nothing to do with prog. Sister Moonshine is a fair pop song, and Another Man's Woman is an excellent driving rock song. There are some songs that hint at prog coming through, but the band chickens out each time.

And speaking of chickens, Davies vocal imitation of a trumpet on Poor Boy at many times sounds like an inmitation of a chicken instead.

So this is an okay album for listening, just don't expect to be blown away.

Evolver | 3/5 |
