Customer Review

on 16 August 2010
Supertramp was originally financed by some rich fan who decided to back off after their first two albums. So they had to do something that could actually be profitable. What a paradox - much better recording than previous two is the result. This is the foundation of what Supertramp really are "From Now On" (ah, sorry, thas song is not on this album ;-)). It's no accident that on their live Paris you can find all but one song from this album. Starting with School and ending with eponymous track (again, like Paris) this is great listening all the time. Even during those lighter pieces (Bloody..., or smaller hit Dreamer). But soulful pieces like Hide In Your Shell, Asylum and Rudy - those are just brilliant and those are true core of this album without making the frame (School/Crime) any less significant. Ending of the Crime is just perfect, tense piano with those stop times, then all those strings going up and up, saxophone and crying harmonica waving you a good-bye. Unless you wanna go through the album again, of course.

I'm just so glad that Supertramp lost that millionaire's money support and they had to find themselves. Because they absolutely did.
