4 stars How many bands produce a "Greatest Hits" package where you either think "who?" or where half the songs are ones that were either never released or you've never heard of?

Well not this one: it is exactly what it says on the sleeve. This is 10cc at their most commercial and arguably their best, though they did many other great tracks as well as these. All the songs are other albums and I have them all, but I still bought this for a reason I myself don't understand. The songs are witty, irreverent and played and sung brilliantly by 4 extremely talented performers. It's proof that prog can be commercial without selling out.

If you have all their other albums, don't bother buying it since there's nothing new. But if you haven't heard much of the band and want a place to start, this is an excellent compilation to introduce you to their work. I'll bet that it won't be the last thing of theirs that you buy!

5* for new introductions, 3* for established fans.
