Editorial Reviews

Supertramp soared to #16 with this 1977 LP, their biggest success to date (as was its hit single, the irresistible Give a Little Bit ). Downstream sounds like a hit, too, and the album closer is a Beatles-esque epic, Fool's Overture .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album; Excellent Band December 28, 2003
By Samhot
Format:Audio CD
The header of this review may seem a bit trite, but I can't help but express my sheer love of Supertramp's music. Roger Hodgson's sensual, reflective upper-register vocals happen to be seductive in a spellbindingly indescribable way, not to mention that his talents as a songwriter were quite nifty as well. And, on the whole, each contribution from the other members blended harmoniously to create highly enjoyable, poignant and memorable music.

1977's _Even In The Quietest Moments..._ hasn't a single dud on the album - each track is memorable, well-executed, melodic and poignant, not to mention in simple terms, the music is just excellent ear-candy from start to finish. Main songwriters Roger Hodgson (vocals/guitar) and Rick Davies (keyboards/vocals) are in fine form, as to be expected, delivering convincing ear-candy for anyone willing to listen. In typical Supertramp fashion, each trade lead vocals on respective tracks.

"Give A Little Bit" opens up with those wispy strums from an acoustic guitar, with Roger giving the listener a charming introduction with a vocal improvisation, before letting his own wispy singing float atop the atmospheric acoustic strums. Such a charming beauty that's really hard not to fall in love with. An amazing track that has aged well, and will continue to do so for many years to come.

"Lover Boy" switches things up, as Roger takes a backseat on the lead vocals, and lets Rick Davies take on that responsibility. Roger himself offers a brief vocal appearance in the middle section of the track. Features elegant, quirky piano tapping, along with slight whimsical characteristics in the vocal delivery which lend most of this song an atmosphere of a theater musical selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before Supertramp went pop... March 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
...they kicked out this very cool album featuring a strong crossover orchestral rock/accoustical piano flavored gem. This album spent most of freshman year on my turntable, and on that of the guy across the hall, and the guy down the hall....
It's terrific to hear it again, and even if the CD seems a bit more "juiced" than the old LP...well it isn't too scratchy either! Yep, Who, Floyd, Zep, Yes fans will appreciate Hodgson and Davies. And any album with Winston Churchill on it can't be all bad. "Never surrender!"
Love the piano on the mountaintop!

5.0 out of 5 stars They Deserve Their Place in Music's Hall of Fame December 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
In Supertramp's heyday back in the 1970's and early 1980's, there was nobody else quite like them. Their music was, and still is, unique. On Even in the Quietest Moments, this band has done what they always did best: they play intelligent music with complex musical compositions, variable textures, and thoughtful lyrics. This album is a masterpiece.
"Fool's Overture" is an unforgettable epic song, taking eleven minutes to wind through a masterfully crafted musical landscape until reaching an intense crescendo led by Roger Hodgson's soaring vocals. The title track is of similar magnanimity; it's just as enthralling, but it's only six minutes long. "Give A Little Bit" proved to be a hit single and is Supertramp's most widely known song on the album. "Lover Boy" is a lighthearted affair, and "Downstream" is a quaint voyage on the water with nothing more than Rick Davies and his piano. "Babaji" is another intense and entertaining ride, and "From Now On" has an almost jazz-like sound to it highlighted by John Anthony Helliwell's saxophone.
That covers the album... Seven outstanding songs from a talented group of seven musicians. It's a shame Roger Hodgson left Supertramp, as he was half of the band's creative genius (the other half being Rick Davies, of course). But Even in the Quietest Moments captures Supertramp's majestic sound, and I highly recommend the album to you!

2.0 out of 5 stars Never a quiet moment October 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, let me say that the 2 stars are not for the musical contents of the CD. That would have been 5-plus stars of course.
No, the 2 stars are for the terrible job the folks at A&M have done digitally remastering this album. Or should I say de-analogizing? The sound is much too harsh, and too loud. Just compare the first minute of "Give a little bit" with the original (LP or CD) release and you'll know what I mean.
I had the entire remastered collection in my "save for later" basket, but decided to delete them all after listening to this
one. I'll stick to the more analog sounding (and still very defined) first releases.
For the record: I listened to this CD on my Electrocompaniet EMC1 with 24/192 upsampling, with the Rogers E40a and a pair of
LS3A's with AB1 subwoofers.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of their very best June 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Although slightly overlooked in the face of "Crime Of The Century" or "Breakfast In America", this album is my favorite
Supertramp effort. Although they were only one album away from
the streamlined pop of "Breakfast In America", "Even In The Quietest Moments" contains some of their most progressive work,
along with the pop stuff. The listener will most likely recognize the opening "Give A Little Bit", a lightweight, catchy
number dominated (unusually for Supertramp) by guitars, which remains one of their finest singles. The closing "Fool's Overture", on the other hand, is a quasi-symphonic epic with
a grand, majesterial sound; divided into several sections, it is sure to prick the ears of prog-rock fans. The masterpiece, however, is the title track, which starts out somewhat unassumingly before it evolves into one of the most drone-like, hypnotic efforts in their canon. Very unusual for a mainstream rock band in the late 70s. The rest of the tracks, like "Lover Boy" and "Babaji", are all very competent keyboard-dominated studio rock from the period, well-composed and sung, although Supertramp were always a tad too slick in these moments for my tastes (a problem that would worsen considerably with "Breakfast In America"). Still, all seven tracks are worthwhile, and in the case of "Give A Little Bit", the title track and "Fool's Overture", must-hear classics. There is enough diversity here in terms of style and instrumentation to mark the band as one of the more creative of the mid-to-late 70s.
