3 stars As a teenager I was hooked on this album immediately after hearing the big hits: "The Logical Song", "Breakfast in America" and "Take the Long Way Home". These are truly excellent pop rock songs. After purchasing the album I was slightly dissapointed because the rest of the material sounded to me very syrup-flavoured and too much easy-listening. At times, the Hodgson vocals sounded like BEE GEES falsettos, which I hated at the time when I was looking for more avantgarde stuff in rock. However, "Child of Vision" is definitely a masterpiece of this album, with wonderful electric piano (their signature sound!) and assorted keyboards. It was also very popular in Yugoslavia because the instrumental part was used as a background for the famous TV quiz show "Kviskoteka". Looking back, this is a worthy album, definitely the peak of SUPERTRAMP's career. It is very commercial, with American style production, so on the prog side it cannot be highly recommended. But if you like immaculate vocal harmonies, plenty of keyboards and lush arrangements, then this is for you.
