Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Album List — 173/500

This 1972 release, from Bearsville Records, was engineered by Todd Rundgren with a little help from his friends Rick Derringer, Billy Mundi, Moogy Klingman, Amos Garrett, Bugsy Maugh and Gene Didwiddie (both from the Butterfield Blues Band), the Hunt Brothers, Rick Vito, Jim Horn and the Brecker Brothers.

"The record remains the definitive collection of Rundgren's long career. With Rundren acting as a one-man-band for three-quarters of the session, it was also his bid for a Ph.D. from the college of musical knowledge. He deserved the degree for simply writing the lead-off track, 'I Saw the Light,' a melodic pop-rock gem that remains Rundgren's greatest hit. Rundgren excels at Beatles-esque pop-rock ('Couldn't I Just Tell You,' 'Wolfman Jack') and Philadelphia-styled soul ballads ('It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference,' 'Hello, It's Me'). He also sticks his toe into heavy metal ('Black Maria'), jazz-rock fusion ('Breathless'), and cerebral pop ('The Night the Carousel Burnt Down'). Like most double albums, there's fat on the play-list, but the best of Something/Anything gave credence to Rundgren's boast of being a wizard and a true star." —
