This album is one of the best I've ever heard. From the Carole King/Laura Nyro styled pop opening to the blaring rock 'n' roll ending, this album is certainly one of the best.

Side A consists of pop songs, Side B and Side C consist of experimental songs, and Side D is a medley of songs about the past.

You never knew what to expect for the next song upon first listen. The album has a variety of genres other than pop and rock: The song "Breathless" is a piece that is very ahead of it's time, and the vocals are heavily synthesized, and it also includes an uncredited sample of Vince Guaraldi's "Treat Street". "Song Of The Viking" is pretty reminiscent of a Rodgers-Hammerstein song.

This album has spawned two hit singles: "I Saw The Light" (the album opener), and "Hello It's Me" (This song was actually one of the first songs Todd ever wrote, way back in 1968. His first band Nazz did the original version, and Todd re-recorded a different version, speeding it up and making it sound like a pop song.

Overall, I highly recommend this album to any true music fan. Also, if you like his pop songs, try finding a copy of his debut album "Runt" and his second album "Runt: The Ballad Of Todd Rundgren", or "Hermit Of Mink Hollow". If you're into hard rock, try finding some of his Nazz albums. And if you love his experimental stuff, try picking up a copy of "A Wizard, A True Star", or "Todd". If you like it all, try getting all of his discography from his Nazz work to "Second Wind".
