Equality 7-2521
3 stars 10cc fall around the same area of the prog spectrum as Supertramp do, the, is it pop, is it prog, oh well I don't care, category. At times their sound can even be reminicint of Supertramp except with wider instrumentation. Except where Supertramp is a depressing, rainy day, my hamster died band, 10cc is a happy go lucky, let's go outside and frolic type of band.

The first half of the album is where all the excitement lies. The opener is a quirky mini epic with very proggy moments and some great piano work and vocal harmonies, and the rest of the first half is filled with intelligent proggy pop. However, the second side becomes a bit too commercial and the compositions suffer becoming boring and predictable.

Equality 7-2521 | 3/5 |
