"I bought the original "Oblivian" record and fell in love with several of the tracks. I am still in awe of the power pop of "Crybaby". But my record was destroyed in an unfortunate house fire. Years later comes the compilation cd and I jump for joy and buy a copy. The best of the best. I do disagree with the other reviewers in their assessment of the first cd. I can find much to love about POV, but nothing will beat my favorite Utopia album, "Oblivion"."
POV, greatest Utopia?

"Now I am a Todd fanatic, and a member of the glorious Todd is Godd crew. I am also a professional musician whos played with countless recording acts. So back to the point I think that POV is the most concise and brilliant work in the Utopia catalouge. Yes I know RA is astonishing piece of Progressive Rock, as well as the debut album (and I should know, I am also a huge prog head). Oops is fantastic, and so on and so on. But POV stands the test of time.
Play this game- Great rocker, with a great chorus
Style- Check out the guitar breakdowns, and Kazs voice is perfect, very New Wave
Stand for Something- Powerful
Secret Society- My favorite song, great guitar, memorable chorus, Todd's Nearly Human/2nd wind band tore this song up!!
Zen Machine- Rogers Cosmic pop
Mated- Beautiful Ballad, the bossa nova version is amazing too
Wildlife- Great song Willie and Todd together
Mimi gets Mad- another great Kasim pop song
Mystified- Dirty blues from Todd
More Light- a great return to the sort of Fusion/Prog sound of the seventies, great solos, and singing from Kaz, second best tune on the record
Man of action- ends well
and I am gonna add one of my favorite Utopia songs from the Trivia record (which is added to this collection!!)
Fix your gaze- BRILLIANT pop song
so all I'm saying is you'll love it"
Long and waiting Utopia/POV!!

"I have a long list and library that starts with Todd Rundgren and Utopia. This particular CD brings back wonderful memories of their process of excellant Rock N Roll. Roger Powell:keyboards,vocals. Todd Rundgren:guitars, vocals. Kasim Sulton:bass, vocals. Willie Wilcox:drums, vocals. From Play This Game to Monument all selections are unique and the vocals are superb. One of their best albums by far. Zen Macine,Mimi Gets Mad,More Light,Man Of Action take your pick all selecions are unique. What a chemistry for 4 unique musicians. Buy it, won't regret it!!!"
