A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Crisis? What Crisis? – Supertramp [#323]

on May 29, 2015

Supertramp_-_CrisisWhen Stegzy ‘encouraged’ me to write this for him I had a look at the track listing to see what songs I already knew from it. I didn’t really recognise any of them, but when I listened I realised that I did know a few of them after all, especially ‘Another man’s woman’ which I enjoyed most of all on the whole album.
A few years ago they showed a recording of Supertramp live (possibly live in Paris ’79 or in Hammersmith in ’75) on telly and maybe I knew them from that?  Apart from the one song I didn’t really enjoy this as much as other albums.  I didn’t feel I was on an interesting musical journey, I wasn’t held on the path even after listening to it three times on the trot.  Maybe I wasn’t in the right frame of mind? I wanted to like it, but I couldn’t. Even the album art work didn’t grip me. Disappointing.
