This is my favourite 10CC album, full of catchy, witty and rather disturbing songs. "Don't Hang Up" is particularly moving as is the better known "I'm Mandy, Fly Me". The album version of "Art For Art's Sake" is longer than the single edit and all the better for it.

Unfortunatly the remastering on this reissue is poor with a distinct lack of presence and top end, especially on the drums. All the 10cc reissues prepared by this mastering engineer (Roger Wake) seem to have problems, possibly because they were produced from analogue stereo dubs rather than the original multitrack tapes.

Much of the original Hipgnosis album artwork is also absent from this reissue.

Any decent record collection should contain this album, but it may be an idea to look for a different reissue.

This sounds somewhat dated and all a bit tinny now but it still sounds better than the 'taped' version I had on my old cassette player back in the day.

At less than three pounds, I was driven to legitimise my purchase and finally get to re-hear the lesser known and lesser played tracks that so amused fans back in the 70s...

The singles are well known - 'I'm Mandy, Fly Me' and 'Art For Arts Sake' - and the lyrics still sound as refreshingly clever as in 1976.

The tracks I longed to hear again were 'Don't Hang Up' (with then-trendy sound effects and a change-of-pace tune) and 'I Wanna Rule The World' (Lead singing a la Adolf H). Sheer genius but, like I said, a bit tinny.

We've heard about the vol-au-vents exploding elsewhere but did you hear "We had some honeymoon on itchy bedding, scum buzzing round your busy body, dumb waiters waiting sweating straining, all mass-debating my woman"

'Tis funny. 'Tis cheap. 'Tis on my iPhone.

Format: Audio CD
This was one of the earliest albums I bought, though I already had their previous effort on cassette. It was about a year after its original release and at that time it was a state-of-the-art pop album. The ambience of some of the tracks, especially "Lazy Ways" and the opening of the unedited "Art For Arts Sake", still gives me a tingle. At times it seems to have an unusually wide soundscape.
By the time 10cc recorded this however, the music press were tiring of what they saw as an increasingly cold, smug cynicism. In other words, nobody likes a smart alec. For me however, this is just another high quality release from the classiest pop band the UK produced in the 1970s.
Occasionally, they overelaborate to irritating effect. There is just too much thrown into "I Wanna Rule The World" for instance, but the combination of melody and arrangement on "I'm Mandy, Fly Me" has an incomparable effect. You might think 10cc were too clever by half, but on this album they were even cleverer than that.

This is 10cc's finest album. Some tracks get in the way, like 'Head Room' and 'Iceberg', but there's some beautifully lush moments in 'Lazy Ways', 'I'm Mandy Fly Me' and 'Don't Hang Up'. Eric Stewart's guitar playing is especially notable, and the musical prowess of the group is apparent throughout.

The title track, and opener, is the sparkling instrumental, 'How Dare You', seamlessly followed by 'Lazy Ways' - a smooth song for summer. 'I'm Mandy Fly Me' is a wonderfully crafted pop song. A great pop song indeed, and somewhat underrated. 'I Wanna Rule The World' is 10cc at their most eccentric.

'Art For Arts Sake' has the most interesting lyrical content of any track on the album, and shows the band at their rocking best. 'Rock 'n' Roll Lullaby' is a charming singalong, and the final track, 'Don't Hang Up', allows Kevin Godley's wonderfully moving voice to really shine.

Irritating to very witty, lyrically, and musically - as always with 10cc, but this is no curate's egg, and, sadly, Creme & Godley's leaving the group soon after left us wondering what if...Along with Queen, 10cc were the most inventive and creative British group of the mid-'70s.

I was not sure at first if this actually was a CD as the price seemed so good.
On re-reading, sure enough it was a CD. It arrived the very next day which, given
this was all about a trip down memory lane, was fantastic as I could hardly wait
to hear it again. And it didn't disappoint. I was immediately transported back
twenty five years (yes it was several years old even then on the old eight track)
only the quality of sound was better.

The songs transcend time and remain clever, musical and poignant.

I am very pleased with my purchase and would have no hesitation buying from this seller
in the future.

Disappointing indeed. Advertised as Japanese Remaster with Bonus Tracks (Single mixes of 'Mandy & 'Art). Not so just the B side extra same as the awful Universal release. Pretty much the same muddy quality mastering as the Universal as well. Nice artwork though. My advice would b look for the late 80s German Mercury release.

I bought this album when I was a teenager working Saturday's in Boots (we used to call them Gramophones in those days :-) ). I loved the album then and, although times have changed, I still think it is one of the defining albums of the decade and I am now enjoying hearing it all over again without the crackles and hiss.

If you liked it once, now might be time to replace your old "gramophone"...
