New Cars (The) - 2006 It's Alive
It's The Cars with a new lineup and new album. Woah, wind back the clock to the 80's!

Rundgren, Todd - 1973 A Wizard, A True Star
What his vision was back in 1973 was anybody's guess but suffice to say he produced an album so rich and diverse and overflowing with ideas which has rightly gone down as a truly classic piece of work.

Rundgren, Todd - 1976 Faithful
It's a covers album mostly, with interpretations of songs by the world's artists some being the most prominent in history. The remainder sees Rundgren covering a multiple of musical trends and aspects and a couple that really seem to be ahead of their time, which is par for the course for Rundgren..

Rundgren, Todd - 2008 Arena
To my way of thinking, the complete discography of Todd Rundgren would be the equivalent of an A La Carte restaurant. You can take your pick of the many varying styles he has delivered over the last 40 years or so. 'Arena', his 2008 is a fantastic return to that bombastic sound of the 70's - melody is prominent throughout..

The Essential Series - 2017 Power Pop (Volume 1), by Explorer
This particular list is all about my personal favourites of what I consider to be Power Pop, so in no particular order, Let's Shake Some Action!!

Utopia - 1974 Todd Rundgren's Utopia
As a debut, there's no doubting that this LP was challenging and confronting to the existing Rundgren fanbase. Certainly a unique album for its time, though probably not the best Utopia album in the back-catalogue. Still worthwhile giving this one a write-up regardless.

Utopia - 1977 Ra
Combining a heady mix of hard rock and prog, is the first of Todd Rundgren's two 1977 releases.. 'Ra'.

Utopia - 1980 Adventures In Utopia
Often overlooked in favour of the New Wave influenced triumvirate (The Cars, Cheap Trick, The Tubes), Utopia clearly fit the bill of a leading light in that particular sub-genre.

Utopia - 1985 POV
By 1985 Utopia were back to their very best AOR form, but sadly they had never recovered commercially from 1980's ill advised Beatles parody 'Deface The Music'. Utopia did however deliver a triumphant AOR disc under very trying circumstances.

Utopia (Todd Rundgren's) - 2012 Live At Hammersmith Odeon '75
Although incomplete, this is a welcome early Utopia live recording from October 29, 1975 at London's Hammersmith Odeon. The original BBC broadcast was three hours long and whittled down to fifty-five minutes on the notorious bootleg LP 'Nimbus Thitherward' a year later.
