    Would not easier to describe it as Holland pressing instead of Europe? Never understood.

      Sound is good on my copy purchased in 1979, but surface noise is very noticeable between tracks. I'd like to find a better pressing if possible.
      Great album although it's not as good as "Crime of the Century" which is the band's masterpiece in my opinion.

        excellent mastered and pressed. At "Lord is it mine" you can hear Rogder Hodgson singing and playing piano in your livingroom

            This edition is made in Holland ant it sounds beautiful. Presing is very loud, dynamic and crisp. I can recommend it easily.

              This is just amazing. I've been looking for this particular album since I heard one of the songs in the soundtrack of a movie at cuevana http://missmode.forumcrea.com/viewtopic.php?pid=6345#p6345 and I'm so thankful about it.

                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.
