Brilliant but don't expect dreamer etc
on 3 October 2008
This album is one of my favourite albums ever although quite unlike the Supertramp most people know. The band is different for a start but if you like early King Crimson, yes, etc then this is for you. There's a review here stating the songs aren't that good which is nonsense-they are just different from the later stuff. Songs like Try Again, Nothing To Show and Maybe I'm A Beggar are fanatastic with great lead guitar playing. This rockier stuff is interspersed by soft melancholic songs like Aubade and Surely wihich are great. Can't really compare this to other Supertramp albums which i like also, as it is so different but its a shame we didn't hear more of this stuff-if you want more Breakfast In America etc it may not be for you but if you like proper playing in a hippyish rock way then buy it buy it buy it.
