Background: Released in 1971, Runt: The Ballad of Todd Rundgren was the second solo album by Todd Rundgren.
The album peaked at #214 on the U.S. album chart.
Upon its release, Rolling Stone called The Ballad of Todd Rundgren “the best album Paul McCartney” never made, and even if the album doesn’t sound particularly McCartney-esque, it does share the homespun, melodic charm of the best of his early albums. Arguably, it’s better than Paul’s solo work, since it is focused and subtle, never drawing attention to Rundgren’s considerable skills as a writer and producer. …. And that’s the charm of The Ballad — it’s the slyly sardonic masterwork of a loner who may be sensitive, but is certainly not shy.
