SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
2 stars While this album sounds a bit like a grown up version of the 10cc albums Godley & Creme had been a part of early on, it is a far cry from the quirky, sensational, and just plain fun albums they had released earlier in their career. Perhaps it was the relative success of the single Cry on their previous album that drove them more towards traditional (read "uninteresting") song structure. This is a mostly forgettable album.

The duo at this point were still studio wizards. The production is beautiful, and the vocal harmonies are spectacular (the background vocal often add the humor which once permeated all of their music). But the songs are mostly simple pop, blues, gospel, or slightly jazzy rock.

They even revisit the "bomb on a plane" theme from the first 10cc album (Clockwork Creep), with less humor.

Really, the only song worthy of the earlier albums is Last Page Of History. But even this song would not be equal to anything on L, or possibly even Freeze Frame.

2.5 stars.
