As the world's gone completely mad (again!), here’s an appropriate album to play. Anyone care to join me in this today...or any Supertramp for that matter?

I LOVE Even in the Quietest Moments, both the song and the album. It's the only Supertramp album I still own.

I will forever link Breakfast in America with a very long drive from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles in 1981. All those miles with no radio signal for most of it (I do remember one stretch where the only station I could tune into played nothing but polka music), and only only 3 tapes in my car, Breakfast, Jazz by Queen, and something by Styxx, Paradise Hotel I think. I had packed away my tape box and those were the only tapes I found in the glove box. Driving through Amarillo, Albuquerque, Kingman, Needles, on and on and on with just those three albums, in a Toyota Corolla with no air conditioning in July. With a collie pup on my lap and my cat in a kennel in the back seat. It all comes back to me now...

Hello Haze!
I have always found it har d to get into Supertramp.
While I can enjoy some of their music, for some reason I can't stand
Hodgson's voice.
Well, the reason is I find it too whiny.

always liked the 'Tramp right from the off - Crime of the Century = great first album. i wasnt 'into' them as much as Yes, but it was good enough. Only got to see them live after Hodgson left & they were really floundering.. (Cannonball was a good track..)

Good driving music (as in 'for the car') I always thought..

'The Logical Song' was a bit of a theme tune - I could identify with that.. Bit of a dreamer in my youth, but then I got a job and all kind of 'grew up', then I remembered my youthful vision & wondered where it had all gone...

Ho- hey ho..

The Cd arrived, this Remasters series is great the sound is way better than the older edition the sound is crystal clear on this one.
Here´s my first impressions:

The whole album is astonishing, the songs are well crafted and there´s a undercurrent dark vibe on some songs, not as Dark as a Pink Floyd but still dark.
Hodgson´s Wurlitzer lines are brilliant, they add a warmth and cousiness to the album´s multi layered epic rock feel.
It´s not Prog nor basic hard rock its something in between, conceptual rock alright but different from most album rock bands from the 70´s.
"School" caught me right from the opening harmonica, plus Hodgson´s vocals sound alot like Robert Plant on this one.
I noticed the same Plant-eske sounding on his voice when i heard "Sister Moonshine" from "Crisis? What Crisis?".
Richard Davies songs are darker with this undercurrent angst fused with R&B styles here and there and great piano lines oposed to Hodgson´s upbeat rock and fondness for art -pop/rock.
I think Tramp is a cross between Pink Floyd Conceptual music and long improvisations, Beatles, Crosby Stills Nash type of layered vocals, Elton John-ish pop/rock vein, Steely dan´s funky jazz-rock pulse and British Folk-Rock scene.
Unlike most reviews i read i don´t perceive Tramp as not so good rock band or a easy-listening type of thing, I think is highly underrated music.
Those who can´t play write bad reviews on pretencious magazines...let´s remember people, Rolling Stone Magazine gave Zeppelin bad reviews for almost all of their records!


The only thing i dislike is that the album is too damm short!
...or that is because i need more tramp
I´m totally hooked! :D
