Oblivion (1983)
Stuff I’ve Been Meaning To Post But Haven’t Had Time To Write About…

Most of my Todd/Utopia stuff is still on vinyl, but I surprised myself seeing this Utopian slab on the CD shelf. If I had the time to write about it, I’d tell you how great it is. Only $50 at Amazon.

Bring Me My Longbow (3:19)
If I Didn’t Try (4:12)

    The kitchen-sink sound on this album is definitely tough on the ears, but there are a lot of great songs here.

    Conventional wisdom maintains that Todd's artistic apex was in the early 70s, but for me, the critically-reviled three-album stretch from Utopia in the 80s (Utopia, Oblivion, P.O.V) is my favorite Todd period.

    Thanks Willard. I don’t know what Horst is referring to here, but I’m curious.
