Todd Rundgren's Utopia is the debut album by the American band Todd Rundgren's Utopia. Rundgren (who was primarily a pop musician at the time) had decided to delve into progressive rock. Putting together several musicians, including three keyboardists, the album covers a variety of styles including funk, jazz, classical and even avant-garde music.

1. Utopia theme (14:18) 2. Freak parade (10:14) 3. Freedom fighters (4:01) 4. The Ikon (30:22).

For much of the double-album Todd, Todd Rundgren was exploring weird instrumental avenues, creating a warped, synth-fueled variation of prog rock. This wasn't the culmination of the weirdness A Wizard, A True Star initiated - it was merely the beginning.

Todd Rundgren's Utopia is the debut album by the band Todd Rundgren's Utopia  . The CD version avoids this issue.

This 1974 debut by Todd Rundgren's outfit Utopia really is great and a lot of fun to listen to. It is progressive rock that is loaded with catchy riffs so it appeals to me on a number of levels. There is also a hard rock element too, which sets the album apart from a lot of the English and Continental European prog rock at the time.

Just saw them for the first time in more than thirty years, and they opened with the Utopia Theme! What a fucking charge to see after all these years. Saw Todd and Utopia Thursday night at Detroit's Fillmore theater. They opened with the first track off this album. Rundgren is massively underrated as a guitarist. This is a monumentally good album - the Utopia Theme greatly influenced my music career from when I first heard it in 1975. 5 months ago. I used to rock out on this when I was 15.
