"I recently purchased this Symphonic Rock tribute, along with one they did for The Alan Parsons Project. While their mimicry of Mr. Parsons' music comes off well and respectful, their handling of the more complex tunes of Supertramp is mundane at the least. The accents are worse on this one than the APP tribute, and the mixing/arrangements are sparse and barren. Only the later hits of Supertramp---"Goodbye Stranger", "Take the Long Way Home," "The Logical Song," and "Breakfast in America" come across marginally effective. In trying to "Sound" like Supertramp, they come off as an amateur Top 40 band, covering their tunes, and not covering them all that well. Unlike their APP tribute, which they merely tried to suggest the same vocal feel, they go for the all out vocal stylings of Hodgson and fall flat on their face. It's more a mockery than a tribute. Not an awful CD, but not one you'd want to recommend too strongly to friends."
