Something/Anything?, released in 1972, is Todd Rundgren's third solo album. His best-selling album, it is often regarded as the singer-songwriter's magnum opus. It peaked at #29 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold three years after its release.
The album featured Rundgren's only major pop hit as an artist. "Hello It's Me", recorded earlier by Nazz and featured on side four of the record, reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 the following year.
In the liner notes, the first side of the album is described as "a bouquet of ear-catching melodies", the second as "the cerebral side", the third as "The kid gets heavy", and the fourth is titled "Baby Needs a New Pair of Snakeskin Boots (A Pop Operetta)".
The first five thousand issues of the LP were pressed on colored vinyl — the first half of the album on red vinyl, the second on blue.
