In spite of a long, significant career, Todd Rundgren’s greatest hit has been his talent as a producer (an eclectic and influential list that includes names like New York Dolls, Patti Smith, and XTC). In fact, he’s one of very few people on the planet who can truly self-produce, but he hadn’t had a solo album since 2008’s Arena.

A mandatory listen for any wannabe producer.
