When I started collecting vinyl in the spring of 2015, I discovered Supertramp. Yes, I knew the hits. But never knew the rest of the amazing albums they made. Like Queen, my preffence goes out to their 70's work. 'Crime of the Century' will still be my favorite of the decade, but 'Breakfast in America' is a very close second.

It begins with 'Gone Hollywood' the most epic start of an album I've ever heard. Followed by The Logical Song, Goodbye Syranger, Breakfast in America, Oh Darling and Take the Long Way Home.

After that the album starts losing my attention. Something that doesn't happeb with the B-side of Crime of the Century. Still I think it's one of the best albums this band made. Very strong lyrics, pleasant music and good singers. One of my alltime favorite artists.
