This was one of my father's favourite albums. After showing me the first time, I thought it was nothing special. But for some reason, the second time I listened to it, I found I remembered the lyrics, I remembered the crescendoes, I remembered the epicness I had passed off as nothing upon first listen. Since then, this has become one of the best in my collection, and I'm proud to have been introduced to this masterpiece of an album.
An average album.
A unique band. As with so many bands, contrary leaders led to brilliance on vinyl. Visionary stuff.
Clever and catchy. Different from the arena-rock of the day, but somehow got classified with it. One of the two important Supertramp albums, with Breakfast in America. Great classic pop-rock.
Splendid record, favs; Dreamer, Bloody well right, Crime of the century.
Have you seen the size of the sun? Big isn't it? What about the other stars? Some completely trunce the sun in size. Now think of the distances between them. You have a whole galaxy of that nothing and stuff! Then there are loads of! Like more of them than Pavement songs. But you get the picture... the picture being that Earth is too small to be seen on the picture. What have we here? Earth problems all over the 'Crime Of The Century'! The title track about the pollution with a solution, suck your soul dry you know?, while 'School' goes against mince meat machines that get the empty souls ready for big nasty society. What I find interesting behind belief though is that it all seems... so sunny. Hopeful optimism in the face of despair. Rage to a bouncy beat. 'Bloody Well Right' is more angry than any snarling posturing poster of the snot the several years after could muster. And guess what? Hit parade potential right here! These are songs you could sing in your watertub while keeping their intelligence intact. Mostly that is because this is a concept album at heart. So 8 songs divided into 4 parts. 2 songs for each subject. Mostly follows the wall and the Pink Floyd album of the same name. Could fall into utter despair but doesn't. Listen to that reach for the sky chirpy chorus of 'Dreamer'. Simply love that one. Won't look too deep into the lyrics of that one to avoid ruining it. But that listening to it brings me many miles away to a Spanish roof to with the view of the Mediterranean Sea. Of all the mysteries this world has given this one is another worth while piece of the pile. One of the 70's better albums. Take this light tumble band piece, talk with the bass and drums and learn what this world is like.
I couldn´t agree more with the statement below. Hide in your shell is an amazing song.
The greatest Supertramp album. My favorite on this one is a hard choice but I will go with Hide In Your Shell.
One of the most influencial albums when I was in my mid teens. Until I heard this, I thought that music started & ended with heavy metal. This album opened up the possibility to me of there being more out there than Black Sabbath (still one of my fav bands though & I still love HM). Truely one of the greatest albums ever made.
Was a huge hit in my neighbourhood when it was released and Supertramp ruled for the next 3 or 4 years.
