His songwriting, singing, playing, and production prowess drew me in to his world, which, in Initiation, is that of Eastern mysticism.
This album combines pop sensibilities with progressive rock and not a little humor. Todd is impish. Bailey, a prolific medium and occultist. Todd's music was influenced by Bailey in the early stages of his band, Utopia. The tune, "I was born to synthesize" is autobiographical and grandiose.
I think it consists entirely of Todd's voice synthesized and overdubbed in many ways. I also saw a music video where Todd sat in a yoga posture and sang the song. I first listened to Eastern Intrigue - Todd Rundgren - Initiation (Vinyl the summer before going off to college.
This kind of multi-layered and synthesizer heavy music is best heard through headphones, and I did--through my giant Stanton headphones. I listened to "Treatise on Cosmic Fire" while reading Jonathan Livingstone Seagul, a popular novella or extended parable at the time.
The gull's quest was that of a mystical ascent. I finished the book just as the music stopped. It seemed significant in an ill-defined way. Was I on to something spiritual? I did have the Todd tee-shirt.
During my first year in college, I studied philosophy and religions. I began to understand more of what was behind Todd's music. I was still attracted to it and played it often. Album), I was also learning about Christianity from friends and was reading Soren Kierkegaard, whose worldview was the opposite of Todd's pantheistic Eastern Intrigue - Todd Rundgren - Initiation (Vinyl.
When Eastern Intrigue - Todd Rundgren - Initiation (Vinyl returned home that summer, I had I dream in which Todd was in lotus position singing, "I was born to hypnotize. Despite his musical genius, Todd, and the mystical worldview he represented, were on the wrong side of the truth. SinceI have written four books challenging this worldview and offering a better alternative: Christianity. Yet, I still listen to Todd and appreciate his musical abilities. On that basis, I give four stars. But I hope you don't follow the path he advocated at the time, now long ago.
For most of my life after having bought 'Hermit of Mink Hollow'by Todd Rundgren in ,finding anything of Todd in Aus was impossible until I tested my own doubts and uploaded the Amazon app onto my phone last year. The only reason I'm buying it is because he writes so closely to my own experience of the human condition and all its contradictions,he just nails it!
