I can't recall seeing any threads discussing Supertramp, so here we are. Man, I think that Crime of the Century, Breakfast in America, and Even in the Quietest Moments have to be among the greatest albums made. Anyone with me on this?
#2
its strange how they're one of those bands everyone knows at least one or two songs of (Breakfast In America, Give a little bit), yet they're one of the least known bands of CR.

I prefer Even in the Quietest Moments. Breakfast in America's A side contains most of their big hits, but the B side starts with Take the Long Way Home, but the songs after that aren't that great. Fools Overture is a masterpiece.

fool's overture is definitely amazing. School is awesome too, right where the bass kicks in especially.

Breakfast in America is just a brilliant album

I haven't listened to much of Supertramp; no more than eight to ten songs, but I've really begun to dig them lately. I'm quite far from calling myself a fan, but I would like to invest some of my money into their albums soon.

I used to really not like this group for a reason I can't explain, but they have grown on me as of late.

Also, does anyone think that the breakdowns following lines such as "For such as simple man" and "Please tell me who I am" in The Logical Song are (simply put) ****ing awesome?

You'd want to buy Even in the Quietest Moments and Crime of the Century. EITQM is a little quiet, but a very, very, good album. I've never actually heard Crime of the Century, but I've heard that it's good. You may may also want to buy Paris, which is a double disc live album, but buy the studio albums first. I don't really like the B-side of Breakfast in America, but the A-side has most of their hits.

Also, the breakdowns in the Logical Song are pretty cool, but I prefer Fools Overture.

I know what you mean about not really being into them. Their weak songs are very, very weak, but their good songs are absolutely solid. It wasn't until I listened to Crime of the Century all the way through that I really dug how awesome they could be.
#13
I think the way they recorded some of the songs on Crime of the Century was kind of weird. I mean, Dreamer and Hide in your Shell just seemed kind of unusual.
#14
I'm not really a fan, but I absolutely love Bloody Well Right.

Right?

RIGHT.

Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.

I love Supertramp, they're great musicians.

School is an awesome song. actually i could go on for ages about all their awesome songs.

Anyone else like Rudy, how it goes instrumental for ages, then builds up to that outro?

Great band, really underrated.

I picked up a mint-condition vinyl of 'Crisis? What Crisis?' a couple of days that I've still yet to listen to. Will do that today, methinks.

Awesome band!

Bloody Well Right, Take The Long Way Home & Godbye Stranger are my favourites! Way under-rated.

Pretty much my opinion as well. They've had my interest for a while now.
