Weekly Vinyl – Breakfast in America

22 Aug

Breakfast in America
Supertramp
(1979)
SONY DSC

This is the album that ended my love affair with the band Supertramp.
It’s really not that bad of an album. It’s actually a very good album.
But it was a big departure from the previous albums. It was more commercial. It was packed with hits. People who had never heard of the band before were now big fans.
It was the hits that irritated me. Gone were the longer compositions and they were replaced snappy memorable tunes. Perhaps I disliked this album then because subconsciously I liked the tunes and did not want to admit to it.
This is a good pop album. I still prefer their previous releases to this one, but as a record it is quite good. It is good summer lounging music. I think I’ll play it again and lounge a bit.
