Every band worth its salt has a defining moment in its career. 10cc had several - and this album is the zenith of them all. Freed from the clutches of Jonathan King - musically - the change of pace from the previous studio album "Sheet Music" was marked, yet it's unmistakeably 10cc.
Most will know "I'm not in Love" as the lead track but it is a real struggle to find any track that is less than excellent on this album. And don't forget all those intro' and fade overdubs on the track were done on 1970's equipment, like running the space shuttle, with a full compliment of tiles, on a pack of D size batteries.
"Une nuit @ Paris" (Godley and Creme in full technicolour), "Blackmail" - what a track - "Brand New Day" and the superb pastiche "Film of my love" - all 11/10 efforts included here...and there's more.
There was only one more "proper" 10cc album after this - "How dare you" - actually, that's not fair because the 10 out of Ten and Windows in the jungle phase wasn't bad - but to have any real understanding of pop rock in the 1970's, you need to own this album. I have three (legit) copies...but don't be caught with less than one.
As for the ambitious, three-part "Un Nuit A Paris", I read a claim that it was considered as a possible single and that it influenced Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" which was recorded several months later. Regardless of the truth of this, I'm glad it wasn't released and I'm sick of hearing "Bohemian Rhapsody".
More to the point, if you want guaranteed quality pop, this album will do the trick.
Original Soundtrack is my fave from this period, yes of course I'm Not In Love is a fabulous song & possibly the greatest love song ever written. but the rest of the album is just as good. My faves are Une Nuit in Paris & Blackmail. Paris is an addictive listen & so well crafted it is hard to believe this dats from so long ago. I have heard it was the 'spark' for Queen's Bohemian Rap? if so it is easy to see why.
This remaster Cd sounds fantastic & the mix is spot on. the vocals & drum sound are especially good.
Listen through decent headphones for a real treat for the ears.
10/10 for 10cc!!
