POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

April 26, 1998|Ernesto Lechner

** 1/2 Roger Hodgson, "Rites of Passage," Unichord. Echoes of the old Supertramp can be heard on the first record in 10 years from the group's former singer. It's a combination of loose pop ditties and cheerful versions of old hits, recorded live with the help of Supertramp's John Helliwell on sax. A pleasant effort, although a return to the icy perfectionism and biting irony of the past would be more welcome.
