Background: Released in 1974, Todd Rundgren’s Utopia was the first album by Todd Rundgren’s then-new band.
The album reached #34 on the U.S. album charts.
For much of the double-album Todd, Todd Rundgren was exploring weird instrumental avenues, creating a warped, synth-fueled variation of prog rock. This wasn’t the culmination of the weirdness A Wizard, A True Star initiated — it was merely the beginning. Not long after completing Todd, Rundgren assembled Utopia, a prog rock group with no less than three synth players, plus guitar, bass and drums. Ostensibly, the band was a collective effort, with Rundgren contributing no more than the remaining quintet, but the possessive nature of the title of their debut, Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, illustrates who the driving force of the group was.
