Customer Reviews

It sounds like very good analog.
YeahSoMaybe?
I think this ranks as one of Supertramp's greatest songs, and one of the best prog rock tracks.
John Keniston
Their music was, and still is, unique.

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.

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!

...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!

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.

1977's "Even In The Quietest Moments" finds Supertramp going for a more piano & acoustic-guitar based, orchestral sound (hinted at by the snow-covered grand piano on the album cover), and putting aside their trademark Wurlitzer keyboard entirely. But don't worry, the band still leave room for rock as well. "Even In The Quietest Moments" is another wonderful, classic disc from Roger Hodgson, Rick Davies and the Trampers, with such classic tunes as the Hodgson signature "Give A Little Bit," the totally gorgeous title song, the equally-gorgeous "Downstream" (a great solo showcase for Davies), "From Now On," and the stunning finale, the 11-minute suite, "Fool's Overture," a true rock masterwork."Even In The Quietest Moments" is yet another winner from Supertramp. What more can I say about it---just buy it! :-)
