Format: Audio CD
Supertramp emerged from the ranks of mainstream 70's rock bands to superstardom in one fell swoop with the release and subsequent massive success (and critical acclaim) of this seminal album.
The stand-out tracks on this album are the famous title track 'Breakfast In America' and the Ivor Novello Award winning track 'The Logical Song', but even they do not do justice to the quality that is evident throughout the rest of the album. From a musical point of view, this album is truly flawless. With near Swiss precision, Supertramp demonstrate the sort of skill that previous albums could only hint at. But it's in the song-writing that the real revelations become apparent. It's no secret that this album represents the high water mark of Supertramp's achievements, and as such, the tensions within the band were at their most strained, and (ironically) their most productive and fruitful.
One listen to the lyrics of 'Child Of Vision' ("There's no reason to fight, because we both know that we're right") or 'Casual Conversations' ("It doesn't matter what I say, you never listen anyway") illustrates perfectly how the song-writing partnership of Hodgson and Davies was disintegrating. How ironic that their best work is on this album... 'Gone Hollywood' summarises the experience of a British band relocating to the mad world of L.A. succinctly and perfectly, whereas Supertramp are in unusually casual and nearly optimistic mood in 'Goodbye Stranger' and the brilliant 'Take The Long Way Home', a track that is as life-affirming as it is enjoyable to listen to..
But, being a purist, it is hard to detract from the sheer song-writing brilliance that is 'The Logical Song'.

Supertramp's Breakfast in America has some iconic songs on it made even better via Blu Ray Audio streaming at 24/96. I'm really pleased Amazon have embraced this format as it is an audiophile's dream. This disk has three listening formats LPCM Stereo DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD but all mastered in stereo staying true to the original recording. I am however not knocking the 5.1 remasters I have on other Blu Ray Audio disks they sound awesome done right. If you are running your Blu Ray player straight into your tv you will not get the advantage of this format. If however you are running 5.1 through a good surround AV Amp then be prepared to be blown away by the sound quality. To all you knockers of 24/96 who think that CD quality of 16/48 sounds as good then you really are missing out. When studios bring out a new format there are always people who say "we don't really need 24/96 CD's are plenty good enough" I say this if it were left to people like that we would still be listening to mono recordings. My ears aren't 100% but I can hear the difference, the bandwidth of a Blu Ray disk is massive compared to a CD. Come on Amazon you must have some clout in the market have a word and get them to release more rock titles etc. I really hope Blu Ray Audio goes ballistic.

It always seems to me that we're chasing a "better" format. We've now been presented with Blu-ray Pure Audio. My opinion of this is that we may have hit on a format for the masses. I've got this example as well as the Rolling Stones "Grrrr". Although these are both 2 channel examples of audio only discs. To me, and I'm no expert, these are great recordings. The sound is so clear and every instrument can be picked out. I've got quite a few concert 5.1 blu-rays and I must say I'm even more impressed by the 5.1 audio. Now, like anything it depends on the people doing the recordings and mixing them. When they are good, "Oh My"' it's so nice! A lot of people enjoy picking recordings apart. Saying, "this is too much" or " this was not enough. Not me. I just love music and if it sounds good to me that's all that matters. So, if you're looking for a technical review, I'm probably not the person to come to. All I can say is so far, I really like this format. As far as "Breakfast in America" goes, there's a feeling that good music, sounding good gives you. I have that feeling!!!!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Poor Supertramp: Musical outcasts for 30 years, their blend of catchy, inoffensive, radio-friendly, melody and hook-driven tunes are about as fondly remembered as the Austin Allegro and Three Day Week. Their crime was to reach their creative zenith at the very epicentre of naffness - the mid-70s. Breakfast in America was their commercial peak and allowed them to grace the world's stages, straggly hair, white floaty-shirts, tank-tops, wispy beards and flares intact, long after changing tastes made such things punishable by lifelong ridicule.

None of this would matter if the music was as cheesy, mawkish and bland as is often assumed. But 'classic' era Supertramp had two golden nuggets - an outstanding feel for melody and good old fashioned creative tension between the Lennon and McCartney of the attractively challenged, Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies.

Breakfast in America perfectly balances Davies's catchy introspection (Just Another Nervous Wreck, Oh Darling, Goodbye Stranger) with Hodgson's perfect pop (the title track, Take the Long Way Home and the awesome Logical Song). If this collection is singles-heavy, lacking some of the proggier ambition of Even In The Quietest Moments or Crime Of The Century, it is still one hell of a satisfying album.

This remaster sounds gorgeous - a real improvement over the previous 2003 issue. Rich, broad, clean and vibrant - exactly fitting the music. The bonus disc features tracks from the 1979 tour, although we're given no further sourcing details.
