3 stars This is one of the most loved 10CC albums, full of catchy, witty songs. There are some beautifully lush moments as well, such as the smooth 'Lazy Ways'."Don't Hang Up" is particularly moving too as is the better known "I'm Mandy, Fly Me", with its rather crafty lyrics. It has always been somewhat underrated I think. The disturbing 'I Wanna Rule The World' is here too, and shows 10cc at their most eccentric. Some tracks aren't quite as strong though, like 'Head Room' and 'Iceberg', but they aren't bad by any means. The album version of "Art For Art's Sake", one of the band's top rockers, is longer than the single edit and all the better for it. Eric Stewart's guitar playing is especially notable, and the musical prowess of the group is apparent throughout. Very good record! Charmingly irritating to very witty, lyrically, and musically - as always with 10cc, they were (indeed along with Queen) one of the most inventive and creative British group of the mid-'70s. Well worth getting hold of! Three and a half stars.
