5 stars A very interesting album. Supertramp is a band that attracts many admirers mostly by its energy and humour, altough many lyrics are fullfilled with cinism and criticism. Breakfest in America is superior in catchy compositions than Even in the Quietest Moments, from 77. Although much more related to FM music than in the previous albums, Breakfest is a highlight in Supertramp's carrer, including major compositions like " The Logical Song", "Breakfest in America", "Gone Hollywood", "Goodby Stranger" and "Take the Long Way Home"". These five tracks are enough music to consider the album a five star effort. The sound troughout the album (specially in the remastered edition) are clearly and delightfull. Davies and Hodgson vocals are even better and the instrumental work in all tracks sounds mature and well defined. The group reached a peak of creativity that was in a rush since Crime of the Century. So, in five years they could release an album that reached radio and fans in a same level. Hodgson songs are maybe the better ones, since "The Logical Song" is an anthem for an entire generation in the late seventies. Davies' compositions are strong, the lyrics are even better than in the 77 album, and this fact makes Breakfest a testimonial of what Supertramp were doing in the late seventies, at the peak of their commercial success. Forget about the fact that Breakfest in America sold more than 15 million albums since it's release. I't's not a strictly commercial effort: it's Supertramp at its BEST.
