Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered two CD set containing a trio of albums from the acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer and his band Utopia. These three albums were the third, fourth and fifth by the quartet of Todd (guitar), Roger Powell (keyboards), Kasim Sulton (bass) and John Wilcox (drums). Adventures In Utopia (January 1980) became the band's biggest US album, and features the hit single 'Set Me Free'. It's b-side, 'Umbrella Man', features alongside its parent album for the first time. The three bonus live tracks were taped between the album's recording and release and include Utopia's covers of The Who and ? And The Mysterians. Deface The Music (December 1980) is a homage to The Beatles, features 13 songs written in the style of Lennon & McCartney, arranged chronologically. Swing To The Right (1982), almost a concept album about money, war and greed (including a cover of Gamble & Huff's 'For The Love Of Money'), was the band's last for the Bearsville label. Edsel.

Sit back, crank it up, and enjoy!

Utopia was a band that could bridge their music between pop to progressive.
Richard Glenn
Deface the Music is one of the most consistently pleasing Utopia albums.

This second batch of Edsel Todd/Utopia reissues are quite nice if you don't have the original Rhino versions from the late 80's. The booklets are really well done with full lyrics and nice pictures and great text. But if none of that interests you, keep your old versions and skip these. Sound quality here is exactly the same as the old versions. And certainly not enough bonus material to warrant replacing the old versions. In some cases, no bonus material at all. Except, of course, for the Runt and Ballad reissues. Great bonus stuff there. But even still, the original Rhino version of "Ballad..." sounds much better than the Edsel version. Hope this helps for those who aren't sure whether to invest the money in these replacements.

If you enjoy Todd Rundgren and his band, Utopia, you will enjoy this compilation of 3 LPs/CDs on 2 discs. I owned 2 of the 3 on LP and, after a friend recently saw Todd in concert, yet did not have these, I bought a copy of this 2 CD set for him and one for me. My sentimental favorite is Deface the Music, which is a clever, intelligent tribute to The Beatles. It is hard to believe that Todd made this music about 33 years ago, yet each song still clearly resonates the complex and diverse composition that is characteristic of Todd. In a world where we are fortunate to have so much great music, all I can say is this music by Todd (and the talented lads that make up Utopia) is indicative of his musical genius! Sit back, crank it up, and enjoy!

Big Todd Rundgren fan and loved UTOPIA at this time with these four musicians.I have most
of the Utopia Dvd's and some of their cd's and thought i would add this to my collection.I had
always liked Adventures in Utopia and had it on album,but wanted to get it on cd,and never
had listened to Deface the Music or Swing to the Right.

The cd's sound great and Adventures in Utopia was just as i expected,very GOOD.Deface
the Music was ok but i did like Swing to the Right.To each his own on that,but the price
was not bad and glad to have it.

I'm a fan, and enjoy having a complete set of Todd's works. That said, this isn't my favorite CD, and if you're new to Todd, don't start here.

Utopia was the best band in the universe! These are 2 strong albums. Deface the Music is a fitting tribute to that other great band The Beatles.
