Prog Reviewer
4 stars I want to review something completely different now. And what could I do better than an album that isn't really prog but indeed prog related. In fact it's the only prog related album 10CC has made in my opinion, although I must admit I don't know all their albums. But 10CC is actually only slightly progressive and this comes quite a nice way in that respect so I'll give my opnion about this one.

I believe there are only 3 prog related tracks on the album among which my favourite 10CC track of all time, I'm Mandy fly me. This is one of the best "pop" songs I know in history ! A tremendous track with a great instrumental passage, I'll love it forever. The other two more or less prog related's are Art for arts sake (nice rhythm) and Don't hang up (emotional lyrics). Other significant tracks are I wanna rule the world and Iceberg and even the rest is not bad at all. Even for a progger. I already had the vinyl in my possession in the seventies so I think I'm entitled to give my review on this one. And it's funny that in 30 years my opinion about the album has hardly changed. So that means it's an evergreen (or something).

I really like this one and anyone who wants to make a sidestep to something like pop music for a change (no more than a sidestep, please !) this one is very recommended !
