English art rockers Supertramp's fourth album entitled Crisis? What Crisis? in November of 1975. Like its predecessor, 1974's Crime of the Century, the album was once again co-porduced by the band and Ken Scott. Crisis was the second album by the classic lineup of the band which were the two singer-songwriters Rick Davies(keyboards) and Roger Hodgson(guitars and occasional keyboards), saxophonist/woodwind expert John Helliwell, bass player Dougie Thomson and drummer Bob C. Benberg. Thhis new lineup did a superb job fleshing out the sound and managed to do a great job of embelishing the prog pop sound that Davies & Hodgson had developed. Hodgson's interest in spiritual themes comes to the fore with this album(although it was hinted at previously). Roger's guitar driven one-two punch of Easy Does It and Sister Moonshine kick the album off in full throttle. The latter track is called by some as the lost sequel to The Beatles' Here Comes The Sun(Hodgson is a huge Beatles nut). Hodgson also contributed the lovely A Soapbox Opera, Lady, Meaning and the acoustic-tinged closer Two of Us. Davies' crafted four songs on this album starting with the shuffling Ain't Nobody But Me(a minor hit when released). That track was the first in a long string of Davies sung songs that played with the traditional pop love song in new and surprising ways. The playing on this particular track showcased the strengths of the band's new sound. Despite its quirkiness(and had an instrumental arrangement that matches the quirky, anti-love song sentiments) but doesn't try to coast on just that single merit. Rick's other tracks like the rocking Another Man's Woman, the ballads Poor Boy and Just a Normal Day(which had Roger sharing vocals) are also great tunes. Although Crisis tanked upon its release, peaking at a dismal #51 compared to Crime's Top 40 peak, Crisis sounds stunning today. The remastering, done painstakingly by Greg Calbi and Jay Messina made the album sound much better than it did when first released. Highly recommended!
