Have to admit, I can’t get enough of Supertramp’s album Breakfast in America. I bought it when I was back in high school. Best album I bought that year—and I used to buy a lot of music. Still do. But something about Breakfast in America stuck out that year. Maybe it was the tongue in cheek humor Rodger Hodgson put into his lyrics. Perhaps it was the melodies that felt so classic yet so different from anything I’d heard previously.
But, just maybe, it could have been that it was just a really solid album.
Each song had something to offer, from the ever-popular Take the Long Way Home to Casual Conversations. I loved each track, and still do.
I recently “rediscovered” it. I’m listening to it right now. If you like a solid rock album that glows with fantastic tracks that will make you hit repeat, this is what you’ve been looking for. More than once I’ve been late because of it.
Besides, who can blame you if you’re not around?
Take the long way home.
