3 stars If you were not familiar with 10CC, and wanted to find out what they were about, this would not be a bad place to start. This collection covers the essential portion of the band's career, from the debut album (the Hotlegs album doesn't count), through their last hit, Dreadlock Holiday, which came from the second album after Lol Creme and Kevin Godley left the band. and from what I've heard of the subsequent albums, we are not missing much.

The collection, while not containing some of the group's most progressive material, does feature the innovative arrangements and sly humor that they were known for.

Since the collection contains no unreleased material, and Art For Arts Sake and I'm Mandy, Fly Me both have their intros chopped off, the best I can rate this is three stars.
