4 stars This seems to be 10CC's most popular album, although to me it is good, but not as good as How Dare You. And although they had some airplay from their first two albums, it was I'm Not In Love that received major attention for the band. That song, light and airy on the outside, has an intriguing arrangement, with vocals mixed together with similar sounding keyboards, to create a beautiful effect.

The central piece of the album is Une Nuit A Paris, a multipart cabaret styled piece, that showcases quite a few vocal styles. Blackmail is a character piece, one of many 10CC recorded about shady characters, this one being a blackmailer.

The Second Sitting For The Last Supper is a somewhat humerous request for the return of a certain messiah. Brand New Day begins as if it is going to be one of those light maudlin ballads, but excellent production, especially with the vocals, keeps it interesting. Flying Junk is not bad, a throwback to the first two albums. Life Is A Minestrone, the other single from the album, is a delightful, silly party song.

The Film Of My Love I think was supposed to be a parody of old film music, but the schmaltz overtakes whatever Godley & Creme were trying to convey, and makes the song embarassingly hard to listen to. The only bad song on the album.

4 stars.
