Much like A Wizard/A True Star that preceeded it, Todd is a psychedelic roller coaster ride that whirls you through the manic yet genius mind of it's creator. Rarely have I encountered an album that bounces between such extremes. On the one hand you'll find some of Todd's most catchy & melodic songs ever. Beautiful tunes like I Think You Know, A Dream Goes On Forever, and The Last Ride. Then suddenly you'll be thrown into a rambling mish-mash of synthesized mania that will test the patience of even the most loyal fan. But part of the fun of being a Rundgren listener is the element of surprise. He may disappoint you sometimes but he'll rarely bore you and will always keep you guessing. One thing I really love about Todd is his guitar playing. The cat has bonefide six-string mojo baby and it's well displayed on this record. To sum up, if you're buying your first Todd record, this isn't the one. A lot of it is just too weird for the uninitiated. Stick with Something/Anything, Faithful, or Hermit Of Mink Hollow. But for those of you who already know what Todd Rundgren's quirky brand of genius is all about and want more of it, this album is a must buy.
