  • Supertramp - Breakfast in America. A major success, but a disappointment too!

    They joined the "pop" music generation and blew off their progressive roots.

      Haven't listened to it in ages. Will give it a spin in the next day or so.

    John I listened to both Breakfast in America and Famous Last Words today in the office. I think Supertramp did a good job making the transition into a more pop sound and still keeping their identity. I know you favor the original progressive rock side more.

      Supertramp had two massive LPs, Crime and Breakfast. I strongly prefer the Crime.
