I'm sorry, but i have to write a counter-review. The first solo album has some good moments, to be sure. But it simply cannot possibly be considered as being Todd's crowning achievement. Absolutely no way on Earth. There are few, if any, truly exceptional songs. It should only be looked upon as being a formative work, after his period with The Nazz, upon which "Our Hero" would build. The "great" albums are those which come immediately after this one. "Runt" is only for the hard-core fans, who must have all the albums. You have been warned!
