Info

Initiation is the sixth album by American musician Todd Rundgren, released May 23, 1975 on Bearsville Records. With this album, Rundgren fully embraced the synthesized prog sound he had begun exploring in more depth in his work with his band Utopia. However, unlike Utopia, in which Rundgren had limited himself to playing guitar, most of the synthesizers on Initiation were played and programmed by Rundgren himself. Initiation - Todd Rundgren.

Real Man is so good, it's tempting to believe that the remainder of Initiation will follow in the same direction, resulting in an inspired, truly progressive fusion of classic Rundgren and synthesizers. As soon as the second track, an a cappella vocoder opus called Born to Synthesize, it's clear that Rundgren has no intention of following that path, choosing to push the limits of synth technology and recorded music instead of constructing an album. Initiation suffers accordingly. Initiation Todd Rundgren album. Initiation was a concept album that could be broken into two parts corresponding to its two sides, each of which was over 30 minutes long. The first side was made up of Rundgren's songs from various rock genres, similar to previous Rundgren albums such as Todd all of the members of Utopia appeared, as well as many of Rundgren's friends such as the members of the Edgar Winter Group on Fair Warning.

This pressing is awesome. I have compared it to this release Todd Rundgren - Initiation and it beats it hands down. The difference in detail is too profound to be missed by even the tinniest of ears.

kurts.ear.candy This pressing is awesome. I have compared it to this release Todd Rundgren - Initiation and it beats it hands down. The difference in detail is too profound to be missed by even the tinniest of ears. Interesting. While I've never owned a US pressing to compare, I have this strange feeling my Canadian copy is already superior by virtue of having a LARGER deadwax area on BOTH sides vs. Bob Ludwig's cutting. And yet I feel like it doesn't lose anything in sound quality by having those grooves crammed even more tightly together. I'm dead serious, there's more than enough runout space that all of "Treatise" could've been fit in at correct speed if they wanted to.
