When vocalist-guitarist Roger Hodgson left Supertramp after 1982’s …famous last words…, few could have guessed that the band would continue and solidify its pop-oriented songcraft, let alone re-embrace its progressive-rock roots on 1985’s underrated Brother Where You Bound. With vocalist-keyboardist Rick Davies firmly in control — he wrote all the music and lyrics — the album examined tensions at the tail end of the Cold War. In a thematic sense, Brother Where You Bound is dated and hasn’t aged very well — Davies’ politically oriented lyrics are heavy-handed — but the music is a pleasure. The crystalline sound of the album, particularly Davies’ piano, is breathtaking; kudos to co-producers David Kershenbaum and Supertramp and engineer Norman Hall. … Brother Where You Bound never received the attention it deserved; it isn’t a perfect album, but it was a gutsy project for Supertramp to take on.
