Utopia  - Swing To The Right mp3 flac

Complete your Utopia collection. This is a terrible album. All brain and no heart. Technically masterful but not melodious. Tedious message music with annoying studio trickery. I hate this album soooo much. Bought it new in the cut-out bin and played it once and put it away. Might have given it a second chance but it doesn't deserve one.

Swing to the Right is a Utopia (featuring Todd Rundgren, Roger Powell, Kasim Sulton, and Willie Wilcox) album from 1982. It followed the Beatles parody/homage Deface the Music. There is little in the way of progressive rock on this album, which is limited to its title track.

According to some reports, Bearsville didn't want to release the album, relenting only after considerable pressure from Rundgren, who defended it as the group effort it certainly is. In fact, Swing to the Right marks the beginning of Utopia Mach III, when each member pulled equal weight as composers and frontmen - at times, it's hard to tell who contributed what, or even who takes lead vocals

Swing To The Right is a music studio album recording by UTOPIA (Eclectic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1982 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Far from the overly cute approach of "Deface The Music", Swing is the scariest album in the UTOPIA collection. But underneath all the standoffish screaming and cutting-edge cacophony are some remarkably catchy tunes, which is the record's real appeal. Who else could turn totalitarianism into an infectious dance parody like "Fahrenheit 451" or paint mankind as a bunch of monkeys and still make it a barrelful of fun?
