POV (album)

POV is the ninth and final studio album by the rock group Utopia, released in 1985. It peaked at #161 on the Billboard 200 charts. Except for live albums and compilations, this is the last album recorded by Utopia. The ambiguous acronym title is given four possible explanations on the back cover of the album, standing variously for "Price of Victory", "Pillar of Virtue", "Point of View" or "Persistence of Vision". The front cover photo depicts the band dressed in quasi-military costumes and looking at a star map, while in the background the giant "Pharaoh" mask (a stage prop from their mid-1970s "RA" tour) can be seen. The album layout also reflects Rundgren's interest in computers and information technology and incorporates elements adapted from the 'window' design used in the Apple Macintosh operating system of the mid-1980s.
