4 stars It may be very strange, but Oblivion is definitively my favorite Utopia record. I bought the vinyl 18 years ago in Madrid (with POV ; bad luck some of you might say) just because Todd had produced Cheap Trick (one of my favourite band). I agree that the techno pop production of Rundgren is a little bit overblown but this albums contains some of the best pieces ever written by Rundgren and the band. I think "Maybe I could change", "Love with a thinker" and "I will wait" are examples of ultimate pop songs. I've always consider this record like the "Black Diamond" of Utopia and the more i listen to it, the more i consider it like a important album. The reason i don't mark it 5 stars is because i don't see Oblivion like a "Masterpiece of progressive music", but i sure see it like one of the most smart pop collection ever recorded.
