3 stars After two unsuccesful and uneven albums SUPERTRAMP released Crime of the Century, which is regarded as their finest work, at least in the prog circles (the more commercial world probably favours the bestselling Breakfast in America, 1979). The 1974 album was excellently produced by the legendary Ken Scott, who had worked with e.g. David Bowie and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

This is a typical single, both tracks taken from the album and representing its more hit-oriented material. Roger Hodgson's 'Dreamer' is a charming and very energetic song in a fast tempo, with a slower mid-section featuring also Rick Davies' vocals in a dialogue-like manner. The electric piano sound that colours the whole Crime of the Century is extremely dominating on this one.

Rick Davies composed the more bluesy 'Bloody Well Right' which I don't enjoy as much; it's the heavy repetition of the boring chorus that annoys me a bit. Together these songs are almost like Supertramp in a nutshell, with both unique songwriters represented. Except that of course the more progressive tendencies and the emotionally deeper songs are to be found elsewhere on that album.

Good, but totally non-essential for the album oriented listeners.
