Todd songs Product Information
Keyboards dominate the arrangements, with Rundgren, longtime cohort Mark "Moogy" Klingman, and session-man Ralph Schuckett all contributing piano, organ, and vintage '70s-style clavinet. The songs themselves are quirkier and more exploratory than earlier efforts, with the progressive and fusion influences that would dominate Rundgren's forthcoming band Utopia rearing their heads. Yet, at its best, TODD still comes across as a pop album, with soulful gems like "I Think You Know" and snarling rockers like "Heavy Metal Kids" predominating. ...See Full Description

The 1st Utopia is my favorite still BUT I named my 1st child after him, if that tells you anything...

|my favourite album ever|
completely idiosyncratic and utterly brilliant - the saying was "todd is god" - with this MUSIC he comes close, like beethoven and brahms (both of whom are also worth a play or two!)

||Rundgren's best record|
“Hello It’s Me” was still a hit on the radio when this second double album was released by the rainbow haired pop genius. It had a full band arrangement on it, unlike the previous albums which were essentially one man band efforts. I sold my hawkbill knife to my best friend, who had just gotten his restricted license, and we went to the record store so I could buy this album. I think this album is better than Something/Anything. Song such as “Izzat Love” “I Think You Know”, the hilarious hard rock of “Heavy Metal Kids”, and the bluesy Hendrix- like “Lowest Common Denominator”. And you gotta love the crazy genius who recorded one song live in New York and LA, and has the LA audience singing in the left speaker and the NY crowd coming out of the right speaker!

||Underated and Underappreciated|
Like the preceding Todd Rudbgren album, "AWATS", "Todd" is perenially cast in the pop shadow of "Something/Anything". While "TODD" is not as much of a head trip as AWATS, the resulting songs were more "progressive" pop, with lost of synth, guitar and layered Todd vocals. Songs such as the Hendrix inspired "No.1 Lowest Common Denominator", "Dream Goes On Forever", "Izzat Love", "I Think You Know", "The Last Ride" & "Heavy Metal Kids" are the obvious pop gems, while the majority of the remaining tracks are indulgent Todd beauties such as the Gilbert & Sullivan inspired tracks "Elpee Worth Of Tunes" and "Lord Chancellor's Nightmare Song". Overall, one of Todd's best recordings along with "S/A" and "AWATS", for these three discs are the ones truely worth owning.
