This came after Crime Of The Century? That is surprising. It's interesting that you say this album is rushed. Although it has it's high-points, I agree that it is a step down from its predecessor, Crime of the Century. The thing about this album that I find most fascinating, and yet no one seems to mention it, is that "SoapBox Opera" is, besides being a great song on its own, a blueprint for 'Even In The Quietist Moments' "Fool's Oveture '. Although I like some of the songs very much, it seems like a misstep.
Supertramp Crisis? What Crisis? Review Summary: Let me tell you a story that'll make a change.

The LP was just what the band needed as they were about to break up because of the lack of success and quality of their previous albums, so finding themselves with a critically acclaimed and comercially succesful release was certainly a surprise. Probably it was thanks to this unexpected success that their release: Crisis? The truth is that this album is not even close to the quality of its predecessor, however, Crime of the Century was one of the darkest albums in prog rock, with some of the most complex songwriting the genre had seen by the time, so it was pretty difficult in the first place to even try to reach its class.

The band keeps its dark lyrics mixed with a happy musical atmosphere in here, so their staple sound is more than palpable.

Most of their lyrics are vignettes depicting the loss of communication among people and the absence of moral values in todays world, leading to such stimulating conclusions as this complex couplet from Just a Normal Day.
