Mastered from the Original Master Tapes for Supreme Sonics: Mobile Fidelity's
180g Vinyl LP Presents the Record's Famed Dynamics, Colors, Tones, and
Instrumentation in Full-Range Glory
Supertramp's Breakfast in America has it all: Illustrious artwork. Sing-a-long
hooks. Contagious melodies. Symphonic bluster. Rhapsodic thrust. Signature
Wurlitzer electric piano sounds. Two Grammy Awards, including one for Best
Engineered Album. More than 20 million copies sold. Four Billboard hit singles
that continue to dominate radio airplay today. Every aspect of the chart-topping
art-rock set screams blockbuster, not the least of which is the production, the
result of painstaking studio setups and months of mixing. Now, you can
experience the sonic brilliance in unprecedented clarity on Mobile
Fidelity's definitive-sounding reissue.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, this
numbered-edition 180g LP wrings out the record's dynamics, colors, and tones in
all their full-range glory. Absent artificial ceilings, Breakfast in America unfolds with an
expansiveness and radiance that parallels the vibrancy of its iconic New
York-themed cover. Crucial traits such as imaging, separation, balance,
transients, and openness achieve near-epic levels of realism and presence. Songs
unfold and breathe on mammoth soundstages that put the effort's legendary
production – and stellar playing – into proper perspective. The 1979 set has
been reissued multiple times in the past, but it's never sounded so engaging,
lifelike, or entertaining.
Indeed, aside from the undeniably catchy nature of the ten tracks, fun remains
the most central element of Breakfast in America. The band even titled the
record to fall in line with the overall joyful feeling of the material. About
the latter: Few late 1970s rock albums feature a more cohesive, harmony-drenched
parade of stunningly executed, wondrously arranged works. The collective
offspring of members Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson, each tune reflects the
creative pulses of each musician, with the resultant contrasts lending to their
appeal. Davies' penchant for grittier, bluesy strands blends with Hodgson's
witty, pop-leaning techniques. The combination proves unstoppable.
Home to a quartet of commercial staples – "The Logical Song," "Goodbye
Stranger," "Take the Long Way Home," and the title track – Breakfast in America
teems with arena-sized drama, meticulous craftsmanship, and mesmerizing
refrains. Shrewd lyrical turns abound, whether on the phonetic,
adjective-stacked "The Logical Song," life-in-America portrait "Child of
Vision," or move-to-L.A. saga "Gone Hollywood." U.S. references also dot the
smash title track, which reflects the glib humor, romantic fantasies, and pop
culture permeating the record.
Breakfast in America also retains its vitality because of its expert
instrumentation and placement. Deemed a "a textbook-perfect album of
post-Beatles, keyboard-centered English art rock that strikes the shrewdest
possible balance between quasi-symphonic classicism and rock & roll" by Rolling
Stone shortly after its release, the record serves as a blueprint of
reference-setting production and mixing. Check the scorching guitar outro on
"Goodbye Stranger," gospel accents on "Lord Is It Mine," saxophone lines on
"Take the Long Way Home," or chemistry of the choruses on basically every piece
here. It's enough to make one long for the '70s again.
