Progrography

Todd Rundgren
We like our poet laureates in this country but we only pay them half a mind. And so Todd Rundgren (and Randy Newman and Harry Nilsson) labored largely in the shadows, taking their high critical stature and fickle commercial success in stride. Rundgren has only one gold album to his credit: Something/Anything? In fairness, Rundgren is a "difficult" artist, a pop experimentalist who followed Something with a string of unusual albums. By the time he returned to writing relatively straightforward songs, Rundgren had been branded an eccentric, his bright commercial future sacrificed to some unseen artist-god. However, as any Rundgren (or Utopia, Rundgren's more progressive outlet) fan can tell you, the man can put a lump in your throat faster than a field of goldenrod.
