Allmusic.com gave Supertramp this review:
Progressive in texture for the most part, Supertramp’s debut album became increasingly disregarded as they blossomed commercially through the ’70s. …Quite a bit different than their radio and AOR material, Supertramp is inundated with pretentious instrumental meandering, with greater emphasis and attention granted to the keyboards and guitars than to the writing and to the overall effluence of the music…. It wasn’t until 1974’s Crime of the Century that things began to improve for Supertramp, when they replaced Farrell and Currie with saxman John Helliwell, bass player Dougie Thompson, and drummer Bob Benberg.
