Needledrop Of The Day - Utopia - "Forgotten But Not Gone" from the album Utopia (1982 Network)

Too tired to wax poetic tonight...been REAL busy lately. But I stumbled across this record for a buck and couldn't pass it up. Seems like this album has been tough to find in good shape. 3 sides (the second record is two versions of side 3).

This has fairly typical Todd Rundgren production. Hot-to-the-point-of-distortion drums...not a whole lotta bass...definitely an acquired taste. But the song is pure 80s Utopia...brimming with hooks that you'll never get out of your head. It's also got Todd and Kasim Sulton sharing leads which is another favorite feature of mine.
