CROSSOVER PROG

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Crossover Prog definition

Crossover Prog contains progressive rock music that, though 100% progressive, may have a musical connection to popular music-- whether it be the lack of emphasis on extended compositions, or an influence from mainstream music in addition to classical, jazz and folk. Compositions, however, still exhibit a high degree of sophistication, sometimes outright complexity, and the musicianship and virtuosity is often on a par with established Prog acts. Much like their kin in the established prog sub-genres, these groups will incorporate many major parts of what defines prog rock: the fusing of rock with the structures and discipline of more traditional musics, the use of syntheisizers and new technologies, intelligent thematics, and the expansion of the form.

The defining characteristics of Crossover Prog are a pop music influence that is largely vacant in typical prog rock. Songs tend toward shorter, more concise presentations though still reach beyond the typical verse, bridge, chorus pattern. The harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic structures may be more easily digested in Crossover while not losing the musical integrity that a prog listener expects. Whereas Prog Related bands are generally commercial groups with certain prog elements or players that were involved in prog acts, Crossover Prog artists are predominantly progressive with elements of popular music.

The most representative examples for this genre include The MOODY BLUES, SUPERTRAMP, DREDG, CINEMA SHOW, RADIOHEAD.

Brighter Skies
FreddeGredde Crossover Prog

Review by Progrussia

4 stars Being a busy dad doesn't allow for much web surfing. 5-minute bursts of activity on PA. So I have to pick my pleasure. Out of the myriad I selected, no strong reason, on a whim, Heliopolis and this. While both are prog albums by prog fanatics for prog fanatics, Heliopolis takes a decidedly retro approach, and Fredde updates classic prog with a modern sound. On a base of symphonic prog snippets of everything can be heard, from metal to jazz and country. Yet, despite the occasional punchiness, what I like is that Larsson never loses the playfulness - from his wacky alias to the tinkling synths and warm vocal that wouldn't be out of place on a children's show. But this is no simple record - in fact, it can get quite convoluted at times. Densely layered songs-suits, different parts and instrumental solos whizzing by at an often dizzying speed. Its pretty impressive for what basically is a single-man project, but sometimes you will get the feeling that there is simply too much stuff going on. If you like this, here are some similarly-minded bands to check out - Simon Says (Tardigrade) for the quirky bombast, ACT for the playfulness and Flaming Row for eclectic-ness.

Pre-Emptive False Rapture
Chrome Hoof Crossover Prog

Review by siLLy puPPy
Prog Reviewer

5 stars CHROME HOOF is a London based outfit that excels at eccentricity. They consider themselves an experimental chamber rock orchestra. They are also known for their outrageous live shows where all of the many members dress in wild outfits and perform in strange avant-garde ways. I would love to see them! The story is that the founders and brothers Leo and Milo Snee were into totally different styles of music ranging from metal to electronic. When they decided to play together they couldn't decide which direction to go... so they went every which way at once! This is some unique sounding stuff indeed. Never before have I heard such a perfect fusion of metal, electronica, funk, swing jazz and chamber music. It is flawless. This is progressive music you can dance to.

PRE-EMPTIVE FALSE RAPTURE is their second album but the one that got them noticed. I have to say that this little sucka has really gotten under my skin. It keeps me coming back for more and more and more. I loved it upon first listen but now after a gazillion listens it just gets better. I'm constantly hearing it in new ways. The music takes major liberties in its development but everything stays within a fairly structured and accessible frame. The complexities are in the background and continue to reward time and time again. Each song focuses on a different genre of music but usually includes a bit from many. On some tracks there are multiple parts. You may get a funky metal beginning followed by a swing jazz break of some sort evolving into something more elaborate. Recently this album has percolated up to a 5 star rating for me. The sheer innovation is astounding. It is catchy and progressive at the same time. I could really see Cardiacs fans going for this one. It has that same totally whacked out approach to music but keeps it approachable at the same time.

Amity In Fame Crossover Prog

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Austrian band AMITY IN FAME was formed back in 2008, and they released their debut album "Dinner for One" later the same year, and made it available as a free download on the Jamendo website, where it has been downloaded more than 40.000 times in the years that followed. "Through" is their second full length production, and was initially released through Graviton Music Services in 2012. Towards the end of 2013 this album was also made available on Jamendo.

Amity in Fame are commonly described as an acoustic rock band, and the band themselves have dubbed their specific take on rock as "powerful acoustic rock". Both descriptions are, as I regard it, only partially truthful. At least if this album is the one used to document such claims. The acoustic guitar is the main and the vital instrument throughout, which is where the acoustic stems from presumably, but this isn't an acoustic band as such. I rather doubt that the bass guitar is an acoustic one for starters, but even if it is the band does use keyboards to provide supplemental details fairly often, and unless I'm much mistaken there are some guitar riffs used for effects at times too. There's also a few guitar solo runs at hand that quite clearly doesn't originate from an acoustic instrument. The main dominant instrument details tends to be provided by acoustic instruments then, but this isn't an all out acoustic band. Not that it matters all that much, but in terms of knowing what to expect these may be important details for some.

For me, "Through" comes across as a solid production through and through, and one with quite a bit of variation to it as well. Opening cut Good Night And Shut Up is a dark and intense one that I suspect may be traced back to grunge as far as initial inspirations goes, and there may even be a slight punky vibe to this one. Longer tracks like Cyranoia and Kraken are more elaborate creations, fairly quirky at times, with a sound, mood and approach that gives me associations to a band like Radiohead more than anything else. The dark, dream-laden instrumental Mirrordrops is something else entirely, the bass guitar central on this one alongside what I suspect are electronic effects, while title track Through is more of a ballad oriented affair, light in tone and fairly smooth, but with a subtle underlying intensity that gave me associations towards good, old REM. The following piece, Burning the Witch, explores a darker and more intense territory again, and on this occasion the mood and vibes are much closer to grunge again, and on this occasion I'd toss in Nirvana in the name dropping department as far as my own associations go.

Careful keyboard details, sometimes also more elaborate ones with an orchestral orientation, supplement the bass, drums and acoustic guitar on key occasions throughout, some electronic effects are added here and there, and guitar riffs and electric guitar solo runs are added in as well. But gently plucked and more frantic acoustic guitar attacks dominates throughout, besides a lead vocalist with a fairly versatile set of pipes. From light toned and frail to harmonic and emotional to dark, edgy and almost threatening, this is a band with a skilled and talented lead vocalist that manage to use his voice to elevate the compositions. It's always a pleasure to listen to good lead vocals, and Amity in Fame comes across as a band that have found the perfect guy in this department.

Otherwise my general impression of "Through" is that it is a solid and well made production through and through. I suspect I'd sort them somewhere under indie or alternative rock when dealing with the art of placing squares in round holes, also known as genre description, but there are elements at hand that due to general sophistication and occasional quirkiness might interest those with a more defined taste for progressive rock as well. As far as defining a key audience goes, I would guess that most people that have the trio of REM, Nirvana and Radiohead in their music collection should find this album enjoyable.

Fields
Ken Baird Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Ken Baird continued his safari of personal albums with another private release in 1998.The album was titled ''Fields'' and after a few years Baird teamed up with drummer Mike Truax, with whom he had been playing with in his former band Perpetual Angelus.Sue Fraser is again among the participants and the list closes with Jacob Moon, who plays the guitar in a couple of tracks, and saxophonist Mike Classen, appearing in one cut.

As Baird himself had admitted, with ''Fields'' he would partly abandon the long instrumental forms of ''August'' and turn into a more song-oriented style.Of course the material remains proggy enough, featuring again this unmistakable MIKE OLDFIELD aura and the light symphonic moves.Once again the music is driven by Baird's sweet piano themes and dreamy keyboard parts, I can hear even echoes of CLIVE NOLAN of the 90's PENDRAGON era in the album, but while the instrumental passages are somewhat reduced, the ethereal vocals of Baird, the angelic chords of Fraser and the orchestral synthesizers produce a beautiful and moving atmosphere.Certain pieces contain some tunes from recorders, making the MIKE OLDFIELD connections even tighter, but Baird's style was way more symphonic, resulting to an almost personal style.Longer tracks are not absent either, both ''No easy path'' and the very good ''Into night'' are fine examples of keyboard-based Neo/Symphonic Prog with folky overtones in a genuine mix of old and new atmospheres.The display of the guitar parts offer a stronger sense of teamwork and the mixture of male and female vocals delivers a nice, lyrical depth...not to mention that Baird's limited but still present flashy keyboards are more than fantastic.

''Fields'' is a work of emotional, lyrical and atmospheric Neo/Symphonic Prog, where the virtuosic keyboard parts have been sacrified in the name of a lighter still brilliant instrumental enviroment.Warmly recommended, especially to those into the softer and more melodic side of Prog Rock.

In The Mist Of Morning
Nordagust Crossover Prog

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

4 stars Hahahahahahahaha! Mellotron heaven, is there anything really that can top that feeling? Nah! Something about that metallic phantom sound that just gets me every single time. Nordagust comes from Norway, an iconic land that has understood the intricacies of glacial sound that the fearsome mellotron can provide, an irascible instrument that has been historically difficult to master, like a shrewish and seductive woman who refuses to be dominated by anyone and who in fact loves to return the favor and shove her own set of rules down anyone's throat. Swedes Anekdoten, Sinkadus, Landberk and Anglagard as well as fellow Norsemen White Willow have all colluded to create this famous Nordic sound, all ice and fire. We can add Nordagust to the mix, without too much hesitation. Unfortunately, according to their website, the group stopped its activity by 2012, after this debut album had made no inroads or impact whatsoever. Pity! So when I read some reviews and then checked out the sample of "Make Me Believe", I was gobsmacked once again as I have been countless times before in my 45 year love affair with prog. I ordered this sucker 'subito presto' (aka Fast!) and I am glad to include in my collection, just in time for the onset of the glacial Canadian winter, as if I needed a soundtrack to freeze! Truth is the entire disc is one hell of an arctic blizzard, from the grey frostiness of the cover artwork to the sweeping and chilly mellotron howls, these Norse gents have only the shrill voice of singer Daniel Solheim (which will be an acquired taste for many) but his insane intonations only make the music seem more admirable and original. Some have labelled this as a tad too dark and samey, which is perhaps what the endless winter seems to convey at times. If you want salsa, this is definitely the wrong place!

There are tracks that really stand-out, like the opener and title track "in the Mist of the Morning" which is eerily ethereal, hint of drakkars rowing gently in the arctic fog. The Hoggarth-like rant is plaintive and the guitar taciturn, draped in a blanket of sweeping choir mellotron strings, with distant bells peeling unceremoniously. Brrrr! "Expectations" has a gorgeous guitar line that is straight out of folk, with a relentless Jew's harp pounding away in the background. Plus the contrast coming from the tectonic mellotron and the piercing Solheim vocals. The oppressive effects-laden instrumental "In the Woods" serves as a perfect comprehensive intro for the epic "Elegy", a histrionic 9 minute lament that spares little sympathy and weaves a tortuous melancholia. All good tracks.

Middle-Eastern sounding insanity is found on the decidedly garrulous "Forcing", a harsh and somber sonic expanse that suggests relentless pressure and undeniable agony. While we are at it, "Frozen" could easily have been the title track for this album, in view of the grey sub-zero cover art as a backdrop. Both are refrigerated icicles of snowy doom and gloom. Very, very good tracks indeed.

But the absolute winners are the marvelous "The Tide" with its chaotic yet admirable lilt. Simple mellotron- drenched ecstasy, with grating guitar and some monster lead torrents, as an unassuming bass motif recons ahead, scouring a path for the mighty 'tron. Dispassionate and unendurable. Right behind we have the incredible 8 minutes and 31 seconds of "Make Me Believe", a blistering sonic whiteout of polar proportions and the reason why I purchased this unknown and undervalued gem. A pulsating bass motors along a slick orchestral surge, an unholy alliance of electric guitar and that mellotron monster, with Solheim exhorting passionately 'the pain of beauty' , the synthetic choir does this hopping thing, a truly brilliant move that proves that a real talented mind is at work here. The loud guitar has that metallic Gibson sheen used so well by the young Jeff Lynne on early ELO albums. A ghostly prog classic, I promise you, a perfect song in an otherwise imperfect though very cool (pun) album.

Sadly, a one shot-wonder. 4 sunrise vapors on the fjord

Review by Lute

5 stars I loved Corvus Stone's first album and planned to get this one as soon as it appeared. Then I saw that Sean Filkins is on it! Never imagined that combination. In fact it is hard to get my head around how many people are on this one. Finnish lyrics also.. check that out! The album sounds exactly like they did before but is wider and bigger and covers more styles than ever. Their blurb mentions Beatles and Jazz funk. After Jussipussi on album 1, it's obvious that there will always be surprises with this lot. Shock in fact. It is impossible to choose any favourites here. That changes with each play. I would be surprised to find anyone who didn't love at least half of this album. Incredible and yes it is even better than the first.

A Sound & Space, Agreed
Onevoice Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Onevoice is the pseudonym of a new artist from New York, USA, his name is Dan Costello and he appears to be a multi-instrumentalist and a singer.Citing Genesis, Yes and Rush as his main influences, he recorded and released his debut ''A sound and space, agreed'' in September 2013, making it available as a bandcamp free download.While no credits regarding the recording had been launched, it seems certain that he recorded this album all alone with only some help on female vocals.

Costello has done a great job, recording and mixing the vocal and instrumental parts of the album, which seem to be the key factors for offering a decent one-man album, as ''A sound and space, agreed'' could have been easily a team effort.Regarding the compositions, there range from decent to even excellent.Does his main influences appear on the album?The answer is yes, albeit more in the background, Costello actually uses the pomposity of the aforementioned legendary groups as a guiding light towards a very fresh and contemporary style, which also contains a heavy dash of Pop sensibilities.His work here reminds me of the solo albums by Sky Architect's drummer CHRIS with strong overtones by the sound of PHIDEAUX, A.C.T., ACTIVE HEED and JOHNNY UNICORN.His music is characterized by poppy vocal lines over a trully melodic still progressive content, which includes playful piano lines, tricky keyboards and dynamic guitar parts.A nice mix of Neo Prog, synth-driven Sympho Rock and Pop, featuring lots of grandiose keys, sometimes with a Classical background, flashy and powerful synths, atmospheric soundscapes and a great number of tempo changes, eventually delivering a nice little treasure.Moreover Costello found a way to create a very natural sound, even if the drum parts, for example, are definitely programmed.Costello's music menu contains also some very dramatic tunes in the vein of Classic Prog bands, which combined captivating arrangements with melodramatic lyrical textures.

Under-the-radar dynamic, updated and fresh Prog Rock release.Mostly keyboard-based, featuring fast-paced rhythms, intense melodies, pleasant tunes and intricate breaks.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.

Preacher Crossover Prog

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars Preacher may well be the new prog kid on the block, a British 8 piece band that has an intrepid vision amid strong progressive rock influences, infusing old school stylistics with a modern and fresh approach. The music yearns for a sense of sonic perfection and groove that is entirely admirable, committed to creating timeless classics that remain ingrained and thus enjoyed. There are some overt Floydian aspects such as the use of female backing vocalists that actually punctuate the themes as opposed to just whoosh in the back ground but in many ways Preacher integrate some different tinges to the whole brew. In fact upon further investigation, my belief is that the Floydian influence is not as pronounced as the rather overt Traffic-like feel, at times veering closely to The Low Spark/Shootout era. Lead vocalist Martin Murphy has a husky voice that can wander between Bob Seger, Runrig's Donnie Munro, the raspy Joe Cocker and good old David Gilmour but his delivery is always sincere and immaculate. Needless to say the vocals department is way up the ladder in terms of quality. Instrumentally , the players are all first rate, from solid drummer Iain Duncan, fluid bassist Gordon Munro , keyboardist Arnie Burgoyne, whilst the guitars are divided between acoustic (Ron Rodgers) and electric (Greg Murphy). This versatile group has done plenty live gigs in order to hone their craft and this confidence is overtly audible on the disc. They seem to be fit and pumped to become a strong future player on the prog scene.

All the 12 tracks are unique unto itself, though nothing is longer than 6 minutes and yet there is no sense of something missing, each piece content to deliver the goods, be it melodically as well as creatively. Very solid vision in terms of stylizing a progressive yet accessible approach, based on powerful ideas and deliveries that permeates each second of every track. Guitarist Greg Murphy has a slicing style that is always on the lookout for some sizzle, each solo fiery and tempestuous, one can only imagine what the live setting would sound like! The Traffic influences seem to be more in that bluesy prog vein that showcases a mood for a particular day. Though the title may imply imitation, "Time "is a different vibe that the PF classic, actually closer to recent Fish, a sorrowful piano-led lament laden with stark melancholia, the 'ooh' and 'aah' backing vocals doing a real job pushing the piece forward, and slit open by a very restrained and laid-back bluesy guitar solo that just never bursts through the obscured clouds. Holding back, are you Preacherman?

The bombastic "Jupiter" is a killer track, a devious infiltration of your sonic defenses and carpet-bombing your prog Spidey senses with bliss and glee. Martin extols the virtues of his throaty voice, piano firmly in the saddle, a chorus straight out of the PF cast, and a slow burn spiral axe solo that amuses and excites. There you go, lads!

With slapping waves, "The Sea" has an extended lead guitar flurry that is both exalting and visceral. A roller coaster ride that has all the classic blues traits, everyday lyrics full of longing and a standard rock delivery, bursting with emotion and collared by a whopping chorus. Arnie Burgoyne again leads his piano along without any hesitation.

The band has the balls to get a bit raunchy as a track like "Fat Cats" is so loaded with sweltering prize and aural stimulation that you start shaking your head, just like I did. Fresh, vibrant and mostly different than any of your pre-conceived expectations, these visceral brits get it! More bar-room brawn than pretty symphonics, the perspiration level here is quite apparent.

On a track like "Cry For Help" , things really start heating up, a blues torch song with soothing backing vocals, a Beatles feel stemming from the harpsichord-like motif that sugar coats the roiling, smoking organ swirl that shovels the clean guitar melody, I even thought I was listening to Roy Buchanan for a sec! This is blues-rock at its very finest. Lashing out at 'government plans', is prog becoming political, perhaps?

The title track just keeps the palpitating ear even more delighted, a colossal explosion of deep felt genius. The focus here is on bombast a bit like the style Procol Harum did so well, way back when. Martin growls through like some drunken sailor who had listened only to Joe Cocker all his naval life. Blustering guitar, a dirty lead vocal, sweltering keys and a rhythm tandem that kicks ass, well you get this kind of beautiful ear candy. Wow!

The spell-binding "Arrival" on the other hand, is the outright jewel here, the siren that hypnotized me to hunt this band down, a frightfully delirious masterpiece that has both very primitive beats and a nasty cinematic disposition. This once again bluesy piece has a highly urban cool feel, every instrument seems to be utterly incandescent and a sense of pacing and voyage that is laudable to the highest degree.

This vivid impression continues with "First Contact" another winner in the kick-ass blues rock category and way more visceral, hence the Traffic analogies, a style that is clearly not as atmospheric as the celebrated PF. Greg unleashes a torrid solo that will shiver your timbers, man this guy is really excellent and prolific!

Spooky keys ignite "The Factor", an ominous diminutive ode that inspires to hypnotize and convey some conspiracy, as we live in a world of endless lies, obscuration and treachery. Martin spews, rambles and rages like a man possessed, a clear indication of how great this band would be live.

The harder-edged "Friends of our Dreams" possesses that stiffer style in spades, as made evident on the quasi Dave Brock of Hawkwind rifferama, which also has this snarling electro cockiness, tossing out Roxy Music references on oboe and shuttling some turbulent guitar whirls that will make you stand up for the Preacher- man. Ridiculously good music.

You want celestial bombast? "Our Destiny" just takes the cake, a hurricane-fed track that could easily have been a prog-metal ballad a la Symphony X, the grandiose melody straight out of Heavensville. Jangly guitars, ethereal organ and a somber voice dripping affected solemnity, the power is soon ratcheted up to the bone, a painful bluesy legacy with a huge chorus, voices ablaze.

Okay they will submit to having the backing vocalists give the mike a whirl, a soul-full expanse that gives Martin Murphy the opening to really shine, riding a colossal hymn into the sunset, a metronome beat guiding the way. "I Will Be There" is a scorching love song, an out and out syrupy blues lament, bolstered by torrential mellotron- like strings with intense organic and synthetic choirs as a further demonstration of their unique vibe. Shut things down with a Burgoyne synth solo that scours the oceans and the seas forever. You are a Preacher and I am converted!

As far as debuts go, this is one of the most interesting coming out of the UK in a long while, albeit in a more 70- 80's style.

Sanctuary
Robert Reed Crossover Prog

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

4 stars Robert Reed has been a prog mastermind for quite a while now, having first discovered him with his first group Cyan as well as working on the Fyreworks album, showing off his qualities as a composer and arranger whilst being well mannered on guitars and keyboards. His Magenta project is still running strong, his musical partnership with the amazing Christina Booth having dished out some memorable albums (Seven, Metamorphosis, the 27 Club). Recently, he has corralled some of the finest prog artists and released the terrific Celtic-infused Kompendium project. Being a manically prolific musical mind, he has finally resolved any solo album urges by honoring us with a tribute to Mike Oldfield and his Tubular Bells methodology. Now some may find that predatory and rather uninspired but I beg to differ, as I know of very few outright Tubular Bells cloning, even though artists such as Colin Masson or Amarok (the Polish band) will gentle poke the style espoused by the Ommadawner. Some negative minds might feel that 3 versions of TB from the master himself I more than enough, so why bother? Well, Robert Reed is not Mike Oldfield, he has every right to create an obviously unapologetic homage to whomever he feels is worthy of such acclaim. Oldfield was Reed's inspiration to make music, so this remains a quasi-religious experience for him that we should all applaud.

"Sanctuary" is a nearly 40 minute affair (a cool DVD shows you how it was done) that needs little enhancing explanation, the two long tracks follow the fluid orchestration, whereby additional instruments are layered onto the original theme, acoustic and electric guitars inviting the bass to enter the fray and blending in a variety of keyboards to expand the melodies, swerving by a few clever detours such as the mandolin, glockenspiel and voice choir sections. By bringing in Oldfield stalwarts Tom Newman as co-producer and Simon Heyworth doing the mastering, the sound will be pristine as such an immaculate exercise demands to be.

Part 1 (20:41) "I worked hard to make the melodies stand on their own. I wanted to capture the emotion that Mike Oldfield managed to communicate through his playing" states Mr. Reed on his website and the importance of his mentor is entirely justified by the manner in which Robert captures his emotion in playing such glittering music. The main theme, repeated in a myriad of variations throughout the disc, sets the tone that will permeate the album. Electric guitar is the spotlight instrument and it utterly dominates the score. The Synergy vocalists do a phenomenal background canvas, the recorders offering up pastoral vistas, the sweet acoustic guitar weaves its country magic. The bass led section is an outright copy of the original which is okay mainly because the original was so good. Bouncy, hopeful and luminescent, the arrangement seeks out newer pastures and yet keeps to tradition. Spell-binding!

Part 2 (18:09) starts off with Moerlen-era Gong marimba/vibes that recall "Percolations" in a way, acoustic guitar, mandolin and flute entering the realm. BTW, Pierre Moerlen was an Oldfield sideman on a few albums, so this should come as no surprise. The judicious use of the tubular bells is a clever detail that only heightens the pleasure. Reed rips a seductive spark from his electric axe as the piece accelerates into bass/tympani overdrive. The main theme is underscored in a kaleidoscope of variations, the guitar carving the way. In typical fashion, the ebb and flow is grandiose, gushing and cinematographic, the voice chanting "Oh maka-che, maka- che, maka-chukala" sounds perhaps fraught with cliché but this only parallels the original script. Reed screwdrives his guitar-centric lead with ardent poise, screeching high and dry, showing off a skill he always has had in his back pocket. The marimba waves are magical, the road ahead glistening with sensation and amazement, the sublime voice of Angharad Brinn (check out the video I posted) seduces with unbridled ecstasy, a gentle Celtic lullaby propelled by a rather brilliant bass run and as such, is one of the finest moments on this recording. The outro reaches its natural climax with more background choir and a series of slippery solos (has there ever been a master of slippery guitar like Oldfield? Yeah, the humble Robert Reed!) And like Queen enjoyed stating on some of their albums, NO SYNTHESIZERS WERE USED in the making of this album.

One of the finest covers adorn the jacket, as well as supplying a DVD that offers various surround mix options as well as a few technical videos. A great deferential package from the man!

Crime Of The Century
Supertramp Crossover Prog

Review by Michael678

4 stars ahhh, hello. my second actual review. and as a disclaimer for people who see my profile here, one of my ratings is NOT TRUE!!! i never even heard it in my life. just want it to get it out there right now. so anyway, Crime of the Century. released in September 1974, this turns 40 years old this year, and thankfully it will be re- released in December this year in honor of that. i cannot wait for that one bit!! and yes, i love this album, like alot. the 8 songs are just awesome and definitely hold up to prog standards. i consider it one of the gateway albums to prog, along with Moving Pictures by Rush, and Fragile & Going for the One by Yes, etc. etc. etc. blah blah blah blah blah. so, let's get on with the songs shall we!!

Side 1:

1. School - .......huh......funny to mention this beforehand but as of this review i am working on an analytical essay focusing a song's lyrics that relate to social justice; this is the song i chose for the essay. well, that is basically because the lyrics criticize the (mainly British) school system around the time of its release, not promoting individualism and try to be "civilized" and what not. They are awesome and so is the music, from the harmonica intro to the jam with the piano solo in the middle (probably played by Rick Davies), this 5:34 of greatness.

2. Bloody Well Right - kicking where the previous track left off, we are treated with a great electric piano solo by Davies that leads into the actual song itself. it became their first hit single in the US, reaching the Top 40 there, and it clearly shows. a catchy chorus, a saxophone coda (played by John Helliwell), and what not, though i wish this song was a little longer to be honest. but hey, i've got the bloody right to say!!

3. Hide in Your Shell - ah, yes, my favorite track on here. the theme of isolation and loneliness plays here, though i can see some motivation and what not within the lyrics as well, as in "You're not alone" or something (just like School). Roger Hodgson did an excellent job with this song, lyrically and musically, with my favorite part being the last couple minutes of the song. god, i love it all. i mean, this should be like some theme song for something in particular (*cough cough Crona from Soul Eater cough cough*). Really give it a listen.

4. Asylum - the unknown one of the bunch, ehy? this is another good tune, dealing with madness and denial and insanity and what not, with the music catching on with this mood, especially during the loud parts imo. even though it is kind of my least favorite on here, like i said it's still very good. and also, what is that noise at the very end of the song? just curious

Side 2

5. Dreamer - the BIG hit here, reaching the Top 20 in the U.K. (and the "Paris" version following suit 6 years later in the U.S.). everything's not a dream; it's reality. though some people try to get away from it with all of their dreams. that's what i think this song is about from listening to it, of course i could be wrong, but who cares!!! the lyrics are sing-along-like, the music is great as per usual, and the vocals as well by Hodgson (and Davies). i can see why it is one of the most popular of their songs.

6. Rudy - the proggiest track here, as well as the longest (7:19) and my other favorite. The intro here i believe is the proggiest moment on this album, helping the song move more along in the best way possible. the whole band fleshes out and jams well (though not 100% unfortunately) during the second part of the song. Rudy, the song's character here (obviously!), has no where to go in his life and is has had a bad life. it sucks, i get it, and im sympathetic for him. so, ummmmm, have fun on the train i guess? or have fun in a little field running everywhere with what appears to be some sort of tennis racket in hand (yes, the guy that's in my avatar i consider to be Rudy, idk if you disagree, though you probably would.

7. If Everyone Was Listening - i absolutely adore this song, the last huge favorite here. like Bloody Well Right however, i wish it was longer, i mean, it's the shortest track on the album (4:03). but, it is still fantastic, especially the lyrics, metaphoring (is that a real word?) the reality and a large amount of people, like in a city, with a circus act, hoping that nothing would fall apart and trying not collapse on its side or booty or wherever it may fall on.

8. Crime of the Century - ahhhh the title track. i like this song much more than on previous listens. i just felt like that there wasn't enough lyrics to cut out for it (like One More Red Nightmare (*GASPS!!!!*)), and once again i wish it were a little longer, but now i feel like it's short and sweet (that's a compliment btw). of course, the second half, instrumental, is just amazing. it's almost like a wrap-up (of course, i mean this is the last track), with a recurring theme here and there (the harmonica from School for example at the very end), fading out into obscurity, thus ending this album.

what can i say, this is an excellent addition to any prog collection, and maybe even just a regular old music collection in general. it is SO close to getting 5 stars however, from a couple of the negative comments i made (which i hope you can spot), so i give it 4 stars. it should be more like 4.5 stars if there is such a thing. this is Michael678, signing out, probably returning again one of these days.....
