   1 review  -  444 views
    Roger Powell debuted in 1973 with an overlooked solo release, Cosmic Furnace, and soon after, was invited by Rundgren to join up with the recently formed Utopia. Powell's debut with Utopia was on their second release, 1975's Another Live, which led to further work on Rundgren solo albums (1975's Initiation, 1976's Faithful, and 1978's in-concert Back to the Bars), as well as another prog rock-based Utopia release, 1977's RA. Wounded Bird. 2005.

More than a lot of other artists I consider Electronic Music. When I hear this album and others like it, To me its pure honest Electronic Music with no apologies. Plus its was so damn fresh then :synth:

Do you think that is because EM was so new? I do remember even in the 80s, people were willing to listen to anything with new ideas. Everyone was encouraged to explore composition and sound design.

I tend to think because it was so new. In the 80's I had 2 friends who would let me indulge them in something different or new. Most of my band buddies would have nothing to do with anything outside Def Leopard or AC/DC or at best Zeppelin Rush etc.
