3 stars The most succesfull Supertramp album, shows them mainly as a pop band. High quality pop of course, but sincerely I can't find many progressive rock elements. Hodgson started to take since this album the pop road, continuing in the vein of songs like Give a little bit. The Logical song, Take the long way to home and Breakfast in America are great pop tracks, world wide hits. Lord is it mine is Hodgson ballad, great ballad. Davies sounds a bit uninspired here, except by the outstanding Goodbye stranger, maybe the best track of the album, in which I can find some prog elements. Child of Visiion is the more proggy one with a good piano based instrumental passage, but inferior than Another man's woman. Anyway is a good track. Gone Hollywood is the the other prog (a bit) related track, composed by Davies.

In another site related with just rock music I could rate this album with a higher rating, but here, in a progressive rock context I can't find reasons to consider it essential. So in my opinion is good but not essential. 3 STARS.
