CD Reviews

One of their better albums
Tnahpellee | Australia | 12/26/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The album, 'Free as a bird' by Supertamp, from 1987 is quite a good mix of light-jazzy pop. I like it's airy, easy-listening feel.

The keyboards keep it interesting and generally the songs deviate enough from the norm to remain interesting. The album is quite melodic and is very pleasant, and the lyrics are romantic. The title 'Free as a bird' refers to being out of a relationship. There is a good addition of backing vocals and they are really nice on the beautiful soft-disco 'I'm begging you', one of the highlights along with the dramatic album close, 'An awful thing to waste'.

All in all 'Free as a bird' is a good album with good music and enough diversity to make it well worth the listen."
Shiny happy people.

"The 2nd post-Roger Hodgson Supertramp album positively glistens, especially in its new remastered version. The synth-soaked production was quite off-putting in 1987 becuase it was such a radical departure for the band, but in hindsight this album was if nothing else the complete antithesis of 'Brother Where You Bound', their previous, very cynical and political album. Although still for hardcore fans only, 'Free as a Bird' is an enjoyable, fun, and sparkling album from these now-ancient prog rockers."
