I like that better. The lead singer of Mumford's voice is like nails on a chalkboard (for me).

There is nothing simple about it.  And it sounds nothing like Simple Minds (the band).
If I had to vote for the most bogus, worthless criticism of all time, it would easily fall to the "simple melody" or "accessible music" bullshit argument that is peddled here and everywhere, ad nasuem.  I HATE that argument.  If it is so simple,  then go make one.  No, try making four or five. If you do, you'll be a billionare and world famous within one month, I promise.   Thousands of artists try  to make a song like this their whole careers and never make just one.  Doesn't that tell you anything?  Sorry to pick on you, Stingy, but this argument is so bad, so stupid, so f-ing common and vulgar and repeated by the masses, that I have to rant.  Whew, got that off my chest.

Dear spoiled RP listeners. I love the way you complain complain complain about selections on this amazingly and thoughtfully curated station. You are like babies. Try finding such a great assortment of music ANYWHERE else, commercial radio, internet radio. I'll bet even your pandora doesn't select them as well. So if you don't like Vienna or some other selection - jeez - don't get so vicious. Having said that, this is not Vienna's best song but she is still great as is 90% of what i hear on this station.

My Dad, who sadly died in February, used to work for A&M records in the 70s in sales promotion. It was an absolute  dream job for a music lover.  I can remember in 1974 him bringing home a white label pressing of this newish about-to-break-through band called Supertramp who had this concept LP produced by Ken Scott.   I was into David Bowie, Hawkwind, Roxy Music and Pink Floyd's DSOM. 
Dad was into his hi fi and a recall him sitting me down putting on 'Crime' and then hearing that opening harmonica, followed by the ambient humming, and jumping out of my skin at the girls scream,  followed by the power and fidelity of the this opening track.  We then heard the rest of LP  in it's entirity and that was a cool father and son listening experience for 1974.  I was deeply impressed in the way that only a pre-homonal 12 year old boy can be.  I still love it now, although it is hard to recreate that initial wow feeling when you know every blip and nuance in an LP. But Crime of the Century is right up there for me in my Desert Island ten.
I saw Supertramp several times on the tour that promoted 'Crime' and they were one of the first groups I saw that put a lot of technical work into their live sound, as they did in the studio.  'School' was also a great gig opener.  On one tour it was Supertramp. supported by Joan Armatrading and with Chris de Burgh at foot of bill.  I cooled off Supertramp after they did Breakfast in America, ironically their biggest success, and in my view, got too commercial and less progressive.  Beside the New Wave caught my attention...
Nevertheless it is great to hear this again on RP, and the track sits nicely alongside Porcupine Tree in that  prog rock genre. And it made me think fondly of my Dad.
I also met Supertramp a few times - they were really nice chaps -  and I recall my Dad asking Rick Davies how they got that piano tone for the middle 8 solo in 'School'.  Apparently they put drawing pins into each of the grand piano hammers so that there was a hard contact hammer to string.  A Ken Scott thing.  So there. {#Smile}

If I wasn't in an office of 50 people, I'd be dancing around the room now singing. Perhaps I shall. Imagine me now, in a boring corporate office, everyone with their heads down working, when some crazy nut gets up from his desk and starts skipping around singing. 

In my imagination now, everyone would join in and start dancing too. In reality, I'd be carted out by security.
