Q - 2/00, p.1043 stars out of 5 - "...DEFACE's attempt to write new songs that captured the spirit and style of The Beatle's 1964-'67 period...always technically interesting..."
Utopia: Todd Rundgren (vocals, guitar); Roger Powell (vocals, keyboards); Kasim Sulton (vocals, bass); John Wilcox (vocals, drums).
In 1975, Todd Rundgren released FAITHFUL, an impressive technical feat that found him perfectly re-creating six classic '60s pop-rock singles by the Yardbirds, Beatles, Dylan, Hendrix, and the Beach Boys. Side two consisted of an equal number of Rundgren originals in the same stylistic vein.
In 1980, Rundgren and his band Utopia returned to this idea with DEFACE THE MUSIC, an album that sounds exactly like the '60s pop songs that inspired it. The Beatles are the most obvious influence, but there are also hints of the Beach Boys, SELL OUT-era Who, and the Kinks. Rundgren and keyboardist Roger Powell even approximate some Simon and Garfunkel-like harmonies in moments. If you're a fan of the Rutles or XTC's albums as the Dukes of Stratosphear, you will love DEFACE THE MUSIC.
