Roger Hodgson, singer/songwriter, musician & founding member of the successful group Supertramp, left the band in 1983 after their tour for "Famous Last Words" was completed (creative differences with Supertramp co-founder Rick Davies were said to be the cause of Roger's exit). He made his solo debut in 1984 with "In The Eye Of The Storm," and, if you love Roger's work with the 'Tramp, then you'll most certainly love his solo stuff as well. "In The Eye Of The Storm" features all the musical trademarks that Hodgson brought to Supertramp's table---his classic falsetto voice, his amazing keyboard & guitar work, and his knack for writing fabulous melodies and dramatic musical elements. "Had A Dream (Sleeping With The Enemy)" is a Hodgson classic, with some clever, thinly-veiled lyrics about leaving Supertramp and striking out on his own. "In Jeopardy" is my personal favorite from the album, a brilliantly catchy piano-thumper. Also worth mentioning is the beautiful song "Lovers In The Wind," and the astonishing album-closer, "Only Because Of You," a truly haunting, memorable number. I can only guess that Roger Hodgson named his debut album "In The Eye Of The Storm" because that's precisely the situation he found himself in at the time, leaving a mega-successful band to forge his own path. Some would say that he was crazy to leave Supertramp, but, as Roger sings in "Had A Dream," "But it's time, gotta take a stance/'Cause I won't get a second chance/And I know now I have to make it alone." And he certainly has---Roger Hodgson's "In The Eye Of The Storm" is a most excellent album.

Combine the best moments from In The Eye of The Storm with Brother Where You Bound? and you'd have the best Supertramp album since Breakfast. Clearly the conflict between Davies' musical direction for Supertramp and Hodgson couldn't be resolved, so Hodgson made the break and put together a strong collection of solo material.
The best material here holds its own with his best Supertramp songs. Always tuneful and full of hooks, In The Eye Of The Storm overcomes the "solo album curse" of many artists. Nevertheless, there is enough second rate material and preachy lyrics to make one wish that Hodgson and Davies had been able to reconcile their differences. Although lyrically sharper than Davies' songs for Brother, Eye lacks both a sense of adventure and an edginess that one had come to expect from the band.
All of that said, it's still a pleasant album that manages to overcome its weaknesses. Certainly Davis and Hodgson (like Lennon & McCartney, Jagger & Richards and other songwriting teams)need each other more than they'd care to admit.
Eye reminds me of some of George Harrison's less distinguished albums; there's a considerable amount of craft on displace and clearly the heart's in the right place, but there needed to be someone to edit the material into a strong, conhesive set. It doesn't help that Hodgson plays most of the instruments himself. A band might have breathed more life into the album as well.

Roger Hodgson is SUPERB! Buy this cd 'cause you're gonna love it. I assure you! All tracks are great! ..For me it's the continuation of "Famous Last Words". Listen to "Had a Dream","Jeopardy","Lovers in the wind","Give me love.." & "Only because of you" and you will completely satisfied. I wish one day Roger & the boys get together to produce another Supertramp album. Hodgson is Supertramp & Supertramp is Hodgson!

I am a Supertramp fanatic! I've seen them in concert more times than I can count. When I heard Roger was leaving the group I was heartbroken! Then I heard this album...WOW! It is, without a doubt one of the best albums i've ever heard. After all these years...i've never become tired of listening to it. Last year I was blessed with getting tickets for Rogers first show in Buffalo in over 15 years. It was incredible. 3 hours full of song, entertainment, laughter, tears and all out joy! I believe he was as moved as his audience. If you ever get the chance to see him in concert...don't miss it...I promise you won't be disappointed!

I came of age with the British Invasion in 1964 when I was seventeen. Over the years since then, I've closely followed a flow of wonderful and varied music from the Beatles, Kinks, Animals, Rolling Stones, and many others. Along the way, I've been heavy into Procol Harum, the Strawbs, Yes, Genesis, John Mayall, the Yardbirds, and most other quality British groups.

However, I realized a few years ago that "Breakfast in America" is still my all-time favorite "desert island" album. No doubt about it! I never get tired of listening... It's a perfect collection of songs with catchy melodies and clever lyrics that are richly (yet cleanly) performed and produced by a group of exceedinlgly talented musicians. Over time, I've gotten into every subtle "ooooh" and "aaaah" soaring harmony, every nice guitar and synthesizer part, every cool lyric, and even the background sound effects and comments that make a song special. (e.g. "What's she got, not a lot...")

When I decided to buy the re-mastered "Breakfast in America" CD, I started reading the Amazon reviews and became intrigued with the praise for Roger Hodgson's solo albums. So I purchased "In the Eye of the Storm" and "Ha, Ha" a month ago. I haven't stopped listening and humming along to them since! "In the Eye of the Storm" is truly the great album we all wanted to follow "Breakfast in America". Okay, I like "Famous Last Words..." (the actual BiA sequel), but it's not in the Supertramp league of greatness that marks this album.

Listening to this album makes it clear that Roger Hodgson is the the basis of the Supertramp sound we all know and love, and he shows it all here. Great songs, great playing and production, and even a great song like "Had a Dream" to kick it all off.
