Todd Rundgren: Utopia

Jon Tiven, Zoo World, 19 December 1974

A LOT OF Todd Rundgren fans may not like this album, sad to say, for the Todd of Something/Anything is as visible as dust in the wind, forsaken for the more adult music of Utopia. Todd's Todd album, in retrospect, seems like his last grasp of pop. Utopia is Progressive Rock, barely vocal at all, only one song out of the four being under ten minutes long.
