5.0 out of 5 stars With A Band Like Supertramp, It Wasn't Such a Crisis August 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ex-`Tramp Roger Hodgson calls "Crisis? What Crisis?" the Supertramp album he listens to most often, because of it's "rawness," at Hodgson puts it. The album was indeed devised while the band was under pressure to put forth another album and tour in the wake of their breakthrough third album "Crime of the Century," which may be why the ex-vocalist finds the finished product more raw when compared to other Supertramp albums. But for an album that was planned and recorded while the band was under stress to keep the momentum going, "Crisis? What Crisis?" is an elaborate suite of songs, making it a crushing shame that the album will almost never appear on any big-time 100 Greatest Albums of Rock & Roll lists.
The dignified pop of Supertramp always sounded clinical and studio-polished, but not because of any Steely Dan-like studio isolation. That's just the way it was (ironically it translated well onto stage, as captured on the 1980 live album "Paris"). This album isn't exactly "raw" but it is certainly a bit more freewheeling and often less tightly wound as Supertramp's other albums. The album also allows a bit more space for Hodgson's guitars, which he often replaced with keyboards. Even though the quintet was under pressure to release another album, many spots on the album suggest that the band was having some fun, shown in the positive opener `Easy Does It,' `Lady,' and `Another Man's Woman.' There is however at least one genuinely raw song, the heavy schizophrenic `Ain't Nobody But Me.' But there are also plenty of tracks to confirm Supertramp's ability to create pure, flawless, and sophisticated pop songs like `Sister Moonshine' and `A Soapbox Opera.'. The world-weary `Just A Normal Day' is balanced by the more optimistic and catchy `The Meaning.

1.0 out of 5 stars This "Remaster" Series is TERRIBLE - Run Away FAST! February 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a professional sound mixer and a long-time Supertramp fan and this "re-master" (as with all the "re-mastered Supertramp albums) is a CRIME. The primary flaw, in my opinion, is that it is terribly over-compressed, (which was most likely the directive from the hip, young "executives" at A&M - "make it hotter"; therefor the legendary mastering engineer is not entirely responsible for this mess.)

The problem with trying to make a record mixed in 1975 "pop out" by compressing it and making it "seem" louder, is that it horribly skews the balance of the original mixes; on this "re-master" you will hear a completely different relationship between the bass guitar and the kick drum, and certainly, as previously mentioned, much more "brittle" high end, not to mention a "flattening-out" of the dynamics of the original mixes - a quick comparison of the audio waveforms between the two versions shows just how much dynamic range has been lost.

This is a CRIME against the artists and original producer and mixers, since from this point onward this MESS of a re-master is what people will have available to them for purchase. It can not possibly represent the creative intentions of the musicians, and is a crass and mis-guided attempt to "update" a work which has it's place in the history of pop music. If you want to hear this music as intended, you would be better off trying to find a used copy of the original CD release, despite the problems inherent in those versions - this version, to my ears, constitutes a remix, and is a terribly bad remix at that. Shame on you A&M and Mr. Legendary Mastering Engineer - you know what you've done is wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album From The Hodgson Era July 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Most Supertramp fans point to "Breakfast In America" as the group's masterpiece. Well, "Breakfast" IS a classic Tramp album, and it is without question their biggest seller, but I've always leaned more toward "Crisis? What Crisis?" as the band's best album from their days with Roger Hodgson. This is such an uplifting album to play, containing arguably the best material from the Hodgson/Rick Davies singing/songwriting team. Hodgson's "Sister Moonshine," "Lady," and the jig-inducing "The Meaning" are such incredible songs, "Another Soapbox Opera" has great mood to it, and Hodgson's album bookends "Easy Does It" & "Two Of Us" are both very lovely. The man has a classic falsetto voice, and is terrific on guitar & keyboards, too. Meanwhile, Davies, no slouch on vocals or piano either, steps up to the plate with the instant Tramp classics "Ain't Nobody But Me" & "Another Man's Woman," while "Poor Boy" is a wonderfully light, breezy number guaranteed to make you smile. And the two men come together for the excellent dramatic piece, "Just A Normal Day." Both Hodgson & Davies truly shine on this album, and they're brilliantly augmented by sax man John Helliwell, drummer Bob Seibenberg and bassist Dougie Thomson. And to top it off, the album has been remastered for superior sound quality, which makes this CD all the more sweeter."Crisis? What Crisis?" is a superb Supertramp album, one that I can't recommend enough. "Breakfast In America" may have the popular vote, but for me, THIS album is The Big One from the Roger Hodgson era. :-)
