3 stars Supertramp's debut is possibly better than you can expect. Full of early prog elements ( as keyboard passages and screaming guitars in some moments), long compositions, interesting melodies in some moments.

The strong part of this work is that the music is more based on early progressive sound than almost in all later works. Sound is acoustic enough, and you can clearly hear all nuances of arrangements. Hodgson ( for good and for bad) is main vocalist there.

The weak point is there are mostly raw material for future success , but no way mature music. You can find many attractive small elements here and there, but hardly will find even one fully great composition.

I believe this album is important for band's fans and researchers as well, but for regular listener much better idea is just to start with "Crime.." or "Breakfast..".
