4 stars Melodic, multi-textured well balanced soft - rock / art-pop. Almost as all 10 CC albums of their earlier period, you have here the music you expected.

If you dont like mid-tempo melodic songs with strong pop touch, better even don't start with 10 CC at all. But from another hand, how many groups of that time had so perfectly balanced and precisely played and recorded music?

I always get esthetical pleasure listening this album. Clever humor, sangvinic songs, perfec musicianship. Yes, it's far from prog-rock in ortodox sense, but it's very near to very good music of it's time.

I can compare that music with Roxy Music, but Roxys always had strong theatric decadance smell both together with some psychodelic spices in it. There you hear oposite thing - clever ,always cynic, but well balanced sound ( even enthusiastic, if that combination is possible with cynism).

Recomens to all lovers of bright melodic music in art clothes. One of good 10 CC albums.
