About half of the tracks were performed by Rundgren alone, with the other half recorded with varying configurations of musicians. Once Rundgren was finished with his production duties, he began formulating plans for an improved configuration of Utopia, but first returned to Secret Sound to record the songs that became Toddwhich was more material drawing on his hallucinogenic experiences.

So, on 'I Think You Know,' it's also saying, 'I think at the same moment that you know,' which is the formula for telepathy.
Originally scheduled for release in Album)Todd was delayed to the next February due to a vinyl shortage caused by the oil crisis. Robert Christgau of Creem reviewed: "I've been giving Todd the benefit of the doubt, so now he has to bear a burden of suspicion.
On sides one and four This may well have honest ambitions, which are welcome, but it's too bad they're so self-deluded. Retrospectively, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote for AllMusic : "These are some major additions to his catalog, but the experiments and the excesses are too tedious to make Todd a necessary listen for anyone but the devoted.
