The band released a series of top-selling albums in the 1970s and early 1980, including 1979's Breakfast in America, which would go on to be regarded as their finest work, with sales in excess of 18 million copies by 1990. The band's work is marked by the use of spiritual and philosophical lyrics and the distinctive voice of co-founder Roger Hodgson, which appeared on many of the band's hit singles. The band were also well known for their prominent use of the Wurlitzer electric piano.
