Supertramp - Slow Motion (2002)
The eleventh and final album from this British band.
Supertramp was a quintet on this album with a lineup of keyboards, harmonica, saxophones, woodwinds, guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
Some guest musicians provided trumpet, trombone, guitars, percussion and backing vocals.
Rick Davies and John Helliwell continued on without Roger Hodgson on another album under the Supertramp name. Another album which proves that Roger Hodgson was an essential part of Supertramp.
This is another album that wants me to put on their Paris live album just to get a reminder how great this band was at their best.
Rick Davies and John Helliwell gives us fifty minutes of third rate vaudeville and jazzy pop. The music reminds me about what the working men's club in England gave their punters. Cheap and nasty music which sometimes sounded like pop and rock.
The music here is cheap and nasty. Rick's vocals and keyboards is the only reminder about Supertramp.
This is a horrible album and a terrible way to end a great career. Avoid at all cost.
