Album Review

Nestled between the accomplished Crime of the Century album and 1977's Even in the Quietest Moments, Crisis? What Crisis? may not have given the band any chart success, but it did help them capture a fan base that had no concern for Supertramp's commercial sound. With Rick Davies showing off his talent on the keyboards, and Roger Hodgson's vocals soaring on almost every track, they managed to win back their earlier progressive audience while gaining new fans at the same time. Crisis received extensive air play on FM stations, especially in Britain, and the album made it into the Top 20 there and fell just outside the Top 40 in the U.S. "Ain't Nobody But Me," "Easy Does It," and the beautiful "Sister Moonshine" highlight Supertramp's buoyant and brisk instrumental and vocal alliance, while John Helliwell's saxophone gives the album even greater width. The songwriting is sharp, attentive, and passionate, and the lyrics showcase Supertramp's ease at invoking emotion into their music, which would be taken to even greater heights in albums to come. Even simple tracks like "Lady" and "Just a Normal Day" blend in nicely with the album's warm personality and charmingly subtle mood. Although the tracks aren't overly contagious or hook laden, there's still a work-in-process type of appeal spread through the cuts, which do grow on you over time.

Odd Pricing

Why can't I buy the whole album for the same price as the other remastered albums? To have to buy each track separately and then end up paying more for only part of the album is just daft!

Absolutely wonderful - not a single duff track!!

This was and still is a wonderful album - I remember it on vinyl when it first came out and we listened to it over and over again in Dee Gorman's flat in wingrove Gardens in Fenham, Newcastle. However I have to say I bought the remastered CD from - whisper it (Amazon) because it was cheaper and I wanted (unusually) to own the CD - because I do download a lot of stuff from iTunes. And in reply to the guy complaining about pricing - all you have to do is work it out! There are 9 tracks on this album, so if you pay for them all seperately it comes to £7.11! All the remastered CD's are £7.99 so if this album was priced accordingly you would be ripped off! In my opinion "A Soapbox Opera" is one of the best songs ever in the history of popular music - and as Clarkson said in somewhat of a declamatory manner "Proper music for proper people" - or something like that! Thanks Supertramp!

Where's Just A Normal Day?

Not sure where track 8 is on here, but hey ho. This, along with Even in the Quietest Moments, formed a kind of bridge between their two best albums, but there's still a lot to enjoy on it. It's a much more laid-back sound than Crime of the Century, except for the heavier sound of "Another Man's Woman" and "The Meaning." Every other track is much slower and more thoughtful, similar in tone to their second album. There's a lot of lovely music in there, particularly the slow bluesy sound of "Poor Boy" and the quietness of "Two Of Us." Lovely stuff.
