I have only gotten into Supertramp lately, like in the last few weeks! Have I been living under a stone? How have I missed this band before? Watching Supertramp on YouTube I have realised what incredible musicians were involved in two amazing albums, this and 'Breakfast in America'. Fantastic musicianship throughout.

Not a fan of this band really apart from this. I've had other records by them and got rid. But this is marvellous. It's one of the best sounding vinyls I've ever heard, even though my copy isn't pristine. Do track down a record even if you are just average on this.

The best Supertramp album...period!
Not a weak track or moment on this collection. Listen to it from start to finish. They never came close to ever bettering it prior to or after, Breakfast in America may be their huge international hit but this album is so much better.

I generally like the Supertramp sound and there are some keepers here. Not all great though.

It wasn't until 2009 that I heard this album. I had heard the Supertramp hits over the years but wasn't particularly interested in finding out more about them. It took about 4 or 5 listens and encouragement from others that this was a classic album. So true, by far their best effort - every track is wonderful in its own right.

Supertramp (1974 -1979) not quite given its due. Crime of the Century is outstanding. I love the epic piano works on this song as well as Child of Vision and Another Man's Woman.

From Onater
The track ratings for this album are all wrong. How are Rudy and Asylum, two of the best tracks, the lowest rated ones? How is the brilliant Hide in Your Shell only 85/100? How is the relatively corny School the highest rated track? How are Bloody Well Right and Dreamer not at the bottom? You're all listening to this album wrong.

The real order is Hide In Your Shell > Crime Of The Century > Asylum > Rudy > School > If Everyone Was Listening > Dreamer > Bloody Well Right
