Album Review

The title of Even in the Quietest Moments... isn't much of an exaggeration — this 1977 album finds Supertramp indulging in some of their quietest moments, spending almost the album in a subdued mood. Actually, the cover photo picture of a snow-covered piano sitting on a mountain gives a good indication of what the album sounds like: it's elegant yet mildly absurd, witty but kind of obscure. It also feels more pop than it actually is, despite the opening single, "Give a Little Bit," their poppiest song to date, as well as their biggest hit. If the rest of the album doesn't boast another song as tight or concise as this — "Downstream" comes close but it doesn't have the same hook, while "Babaji," a pseudo-spiritual moment that falls from the pop mark; the other four tracks clock in well over six minutes, with the closer, "Fool's Overture," reaching nearly 11 minutes — it nevertheless places a greater emphasis on melody and gentle textures than any previous Supertramp release. So, it's a transitional album, bridging the gap between Crime of the Century and the forthcoming Breakfast in America, and even if it's not as full formed as either, it nevertheless has plenty of fine moments aside from "Give a Little Bit," including the music hall shuffle of "Loverboy," the Euro-artiness of "From Now On," and the "Fool on a Hill" allusions on "Fool's Overture."

my youth

I liked it when I was a lot younger , now I am 50, it sounds even better. What would it be like with dance muzic - remix.

Fool's Overture

Worth buying for the final track alone. As for the cover, I remember splitting my sides when I realised that the sheet music on the piano marked 'Fool's Overture' was in reality 'The Star Spangled Banner'. I've often wondered how many other people, especially their mutitude of U.S fans, ever noticed this.

Even In The Quietest Moments

Sit down, settle in, put the head phones on and just listen.... Fool's Overture.... magic!
