From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars This is a nice live album/cd. They advertise this as the "original members of 10cc live" but on the first or second tune the lead singer says, "I want to introduce to you one of the greatest drummers in rock" Paul Burgess. He's also mentioned on "worst band in the world".

I think that this is good stuff but of course the thing thats missing is the inventive crazyness of the studio and the effects and tricks that made the songs delightful. So for myself i was a litle disappointed by this overall.

So its cool that this gets pretty high ratings on other sites and features the original members of 10cc but thats not quite right. Some of the vocals are a bit off here and there. Why extend "rubber bullets"? it was a nice hard hitting rocking little ditty and they drag it out for 12 minutes!

If you can't reproduce the music well from a studio setting then how do you present a live concert? Many bands have not done well in that regard Led Zeppelin being one, Although the Zep had to resort to long blues jams and questionable tightness and feel night after night. The focus changed from Zep layers of guitars tight arrangements in the studio to a whole different approach on stage. !0cc try this on the last track but overall again its not very good.

i think 10cc should have stuck to their songs strengths which is good quirky melodies and very good playing and good singing.
