Compiled with the involvement of the original members--Lol Creme, Kevin Godley, Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart--Tenology will feature four CDs (the singles, selected album tracks, the B-sides and rarities) and a DVD (featuring a selection of their promo videos and TV performances on Top Of The Pops, BBC In Concert, See You Sunday and Six Fifty Five Special).

The set also contains an 8500 word essay by Guardian writer and lifelong fan, Paul Lester, and new interviews with Crème, Godley, Gouldman and Stewart.

4.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant set but the wrong approach.... 27 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First up, the music is brilliant. It has been mastered well and the real bonus in this set is the DVD, which features a large chunk of the original line up in 'concert' which shows just how brilliant they were as a 'live' band. By why the wrong approach you ask ? Well I'll tell you. Basically every track from the original first four albums and the respective 'B' sides to the singles is present bar the odd track. So why didn't they just put the all the albums in their original order and where there was a different single edit, put that at the end of each album. Not enough room ? Well the last disc (4) is 53 minutes long and as a CD can hold 80 Mins, there is plenty of room. The one really silly bit is that 'I'm Not In Love' isn't on here at all in the full length version. The single edit is here, now that is a major mistake. The packaging, though brilliant is also a little confusing. The first disc is titled the 'Singles' and as thus features the single edits, only that it has the full length 'Art For Arts Sake' and 'Somewhere In Hollywood' is the full length version which wasn't even a single. 'Dreadlock Holiday' doesn't even make this disc ? I think somewhere along the line someone had one idea but didn't tell someone else. Now if it was down to me, I would have done it like thus. Everything recorded during the first album sessions, including the 'B' sides, I would have headline under 'The 10cc' Sessions, and so on, 'The Sheet Music Sessions', 'The Original Soundtrack Sessions'. It isn't hard to do and logically it would have made sense. There record company people haven't got a clue !

3.0 out of 5 stars WHATCHA GONNA DO ABOUT IT, WHATCHA GONNA DO? 22 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, the good news: The selections from the 'How Dare You!', 'Deceptive Bends' and 'Bloody Tourists' albums are a great sonic improvement on the disastrous, dull, lifeless 1997 remasters. And the accompanying DVD features a great live concert from 1974 for the BBC, watched by a hilariously listless audience (it's akin to the zombie nightclubbers impassively gazing at The Yardbirds going nuts in the 1966 film 'Blow-Up'). Clips from Top Of The Pops display invisible-gum-chewing Kevin Godley's bizarre taste in knitwear, and, on 'I'm Not In Love', Eric Stewart corpsing during the second verse. Of the specially-commissioned promos, 'Good Morning Judge' is adorable, with Graham Gouldman and Eric sporting a plethora of beards, wigs and cozzies. The moment when Eric (as the accused in the dock) and Graham (as the judge) kick over the furniture to mime the guitar solos is gloriously silly. The hardback book's Paul Lester essay with its interviews with the original four piece has much to commend it. And the two rarities - a rough-mix lo-fi version of 'People In Love' recorded with Lol Creme and Kev; and the soundtrack of a TV news item capturing 10cc as they record 'The Dean And I' - are fascinating, the former for revealing G & C's decision to leave the band was the right one, and the latter in showing that, beneath all the layers of vocal overdubbage, 'The Dean and I' is actually a ska tune! Who would have guessed?
For a band whose motto was 'Perfection Is Only Just Sufficient', the flaws in this collection are plentiful. (Let's get the DVD one out of the way quickly: Where is the promo for 'Don't Hang Up'?

5.0 out of 5 stars It Was a Present From Me Mother 30 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A few people have said they would have preferred s box set of exact replicas of the original CDs in there complete form. However, I feel this would have been out of keeping with 10CC who made a career out of recombining ideas from different places. I ordered this having already got most of the material on it but itnfelt like I was getting a new 10CC album. I had the same excitement as I did when waiting for the old releases which I had asked for as presents from my mother as I child. If there is anything I would have suggested as a difference in approach it would have been to also cover the parallel career of Godley and Creme in the manner of the earlier Changing Faces compilation. This would have made sense as there were intermittent cross overs such as G+C doing a video for 10CC and for Wax and the excellent History Mix album cleverly remixed material from the 10CC era. Also stuff from Hotlegs and Doctor Father and even Rameses would have been welcome inclusions and maybe material from the soundtrack albums for Girls and Animalympics. However, the choice seems to have been made solely on the basis of material release as 10CC and within those parameters it is a really good selection.
It is also a poignant farewell to Storm Thorgson who died recently. His fabulous designs made every 10CC album an adventure in art as well as sound. The new artwork for this album include heads with a series of words which could be cryptic clues to the origins of some of the influences on the music. It also includes a Dali-esque channel swimmer with drawers in his chest. The booklet contains a set of graphics which again are reminiscent of the George Hardie designs which appeared in the old album sleeves.
