4 stars A strangely brilliant album but not in the way it was intended to be. Peter Cook's spoken parts are decidedly dreary which at the the same time makes them really strange and odd.

I didn't laugh at any part of this album, but found it VERY unusual. Who on earth wrote these lyrics? It certainly wasn't Cook. I know him as a very funny guy who wouldn't do this kind of 'comedy'.

For '77 this is groundbreaking stuff indeed . All sorts of weird experamentalism is used throughout, mainly on the instrumental parts which sound really strange indeed. 10cc fans should avoid this big time.

For the more adventurous, this is an adventure into some real weird territory where everything is based on new recording technology which is taken to extremes. Every sound is crystal clear - in particular some guy brushing his teeth!

'Consequences' has its consequences. At times brilliant, at times downright boring. I'm surprised to find myself giving this four stars. A pair of headphones are what you need to fully appreciate this - It's undoubtedly a fantastic recording but suffers somewhat from the not so funny Peter Cook spoken parts, but rises from the ashes with some fantastic Godley and Creme polyphonic vocals which sound like nobody else.

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
