Someone Lonelier Than Me




In September of 1977 Klaatu released their second and, many fans say, best album, Hope. Revealed to be a bunch of Canadian studio musicians and not the reunited Beatles as their record label suggested a year earlier, the trio had to record something astonishing or go down in history as a hoax. Fans say they recorded something astonishing, out-engineering almost every prog rock album released in 1977.They point to the George Harrison sound a like title track and the Bohemian Rhapsodic "Loneliest of Creatures. Even so, radio refused to fall for Klaatu a second time.  Definitely worth a listen.

  2. Very nicely stated in your awareness of the artistic achievement as well as the bittersweet circumstances surrounding this album. But if ever there were a record that did deserve to be hyped from then to eternity on its merits, this is it.
