Format: Audio CD
This cd contains the first two commerically viable albums, "L" and "Freeze Frame", (I'm discounting Consequences) of Godley and Creme's career after they left 10 c.c. While 10 c.c. then descended more and more into banal pop the inventiveness, wit and, in some instamces, viscreal rock that was a staple of 10 c.c.continued to reappear on these Godley and Creme's albums. "L", chronologically the first of these two albums to appear could almost pass as a 10 c.c. album. The music is dense and tense giving an almost claustrophobic feel. Trying to cram too many ideas in perhaps but nevertheless some very fine music. Some of the standout tracks include "This sporting life" and "Sandwiches of you", which may even have been released as a single all those years ago. Highly recommended as a c.d. release on it's own when combined with "Freeze Frame" the c.d. becomes an absolute "must buy" for anyone who ever admired 10 c.c. or Godley and Creme. "Freeze frame" displays all the wit and invention that we are accustomed to but it has so much more. Here Godley and Creme really spread their wings musically to create a spacious, sonic delight. It probably includes some of the best and most inventive music they ever wrote (check out "Brazilia", "Freeze Frame" and "I pity inanimate objects"). Do yourself a favour and buy this.

HASH(0x9846c2f0) out of 5 stars Two Masterpieces of the Imagination 31 Dec. 2000
By Hugh Coyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Creme and Godley, the musical geniuses behind the band 10cc, let their wild imaginations loose on these two brilliant releases from the late 70s. Having them packaged together at a bargain price makes this a "best buy." Though infused with technological treatments and state-of-the-art (back then) production values, these are NOT "techno" albums at all. They're lush soundscapes with some of the smartest, wryest lyrics ever. These were some of the most experimental songs produced at the time, and they stand the test of time well. Their humor and social commentary remains on target, and the music doesn't sound dated at all. Highly uncommercial, never boring, and sonically brilliant, these two albums will always have an honored spot in my music collection.

HASH(0x9846c344) out of 5 stars One of the best cd's you'll find at Amazon.com 24 Jan. 2001
By Mr H Bolet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've waited since the invention of cd's for Godley&Creme's "L" album to appear on cd. If you like your music melodic, rhythmically interesting - if you like singers that can sing, and players that can play - and can play with inventiveness and brilliance - if you like lyrics intelligent, artistic and witty, you'll love this. "L" is a masterpiece, and the other album is 99% as good. These people have nothing to declare but their combined genius.

HASH(0x956eb444) out of 5 stars The "Creme" of the Crop-great Godley & Creme 2fer 25 Mar. 2001
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Two of the duo's finest albums L and Freeze Frame are tightly focused pop art masterpieces. The first album has a couple of guests most notably Andy MacKay from Roxy Music. His guitar playing counterpart from Roxy Phil Manzanera appears on Freeze Frame. His playing provides a interesting sonic backdrop for Lol and Kevin's songs. There's also an uncredited appearence by Paul McCartney on one track from Freeze Frame.
One Way has done a marvelous job of remastering both albums. The sound on Freeze Frame is a huge improvement on the Japanese CD released a couple of years ago (and at half the price!). The original album graphics are pretty faithfully reproduced. This is one of the better reissues released this year. One can only hope that One Way will see fit to reissue the rest of the duo's back catalog (and perhaps the out of print 10cc albums as well).

HASH(0x9846c5cc) out of 5 stars Sheer Genius 25 Oct. 2012
By RealityWizard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After the brilliant 1976 10cc album "How Dare You!", Lol Creme and Kevin Godley split ways with Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart to explore a more experimental path and the possibilities of the Gizmo, a guitar synthesizer they had invented. Their first release as a duo, "Consequences", from 1977, was a TRIPLE album featuring an extended play written and voiced by Peter Cook, most famously of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore and Beyond the Fringe. Hello, I see there's a CD version of that here retailing on Amazon for $224.99. It was not well-received, but I remember it fondly, and have the vinyl. This CD encompasses their next two releases from 1978 and 1979, and I will say this is some of the best music of the 20th century. Creme sings high and Godley sings low. The songs are mostly drenched in irony, sometimes preciously so, but they feature beautiful harmonies, surprising melodic turns without ever being atonal, and an amazing variety of sounds, achieved largely through the Gizmo. "Art School Canteen", from "L", is a downbeat jazzy number detailing the downside of desperate attempts to be creative in the context of a London art school. "Does getting into Zappa mean getting out of zen? Sex has reared its ugly head at last, but it didn't seem ugly then. Begin the Beguine. Art school canteen." "Punchbag" is as harrowing an experience as you'll ever encounter in art-rock, chronicling the travails of an unfavored geek in the ruthless setting of an English public school: "Zooming round the corridors like Gaudeamus Igutur, bursting, bursting, bursting for the crap I know they'll never let me have.... 'Can. I. Get. Up. Now?' 'No.' 'Please'". "Foreign Accents" is a lovely latinish instrumental featuring, I believe, horn sounds achieved through the Gizmo. "Hit Factory/Business Is Business" is a depressive exploration of the art vs. commerce dilemma that 10cc delineated in "How Dare You"'s "Art for Art's Sake". "An Englishman in New York", the first cut from "Freeze Frame" is a catchy tune with an unusual melody that pretty accurately portrays the nightmarish qualities of NYC in the late 70s. You know what, I don't think a day goes by these days when I don't think of the tune of "I Pity Inanimate Objects", which features the 70s version of Autotune, the way it should be used, not to "correct" poorly sung melodies, but to make something truly weird. "Is a sofa as happy in one corner as it is in another? And how does the room feel about it?" I worry about these thi-i-i-i-i-i-ings." "Brazilia" is a haunting impression of Brazil's created-from-scratch, concrete, Soviet-inspired capital city placed in the middle of the country. "Bad. Mistake." Buy this CD and love it is what I say.
HASH(0x9846c56c) out of 5 stars but its easy to hear how they ended up as filmakers 24 July 2014

When people work on ProTools they are in a future derived from the intent to make what these guys did on analog tape easier and cheaper. Songs sometimes a little dated, but its easy to hear how they ended up as filmakers. Good stuff
