With your 1st stop being SHEET MUSIC, your 2nd stop being The Original Soundtrack, you should now have arrived at stop no.3, "How Dare You". Can you hear it yet? Can you hear how influential 10cc were on 7o's music, and what was to come in the 8o's? By this time, even ABBA & The Carpenters started to sound like them, whether that made 10cc happy or not no one knows.
Unfortunately the partnership of Creme/Godley/Stewart/Gouldman came to a close on this album. This is a frustrating thing. What could have come after this album no one knows, but something tells me it would have absolutely put 10cc through the roof. But alas it was not to be. So what you get is 10cc in "change mode". Of the three albums mentioned, "How Dare You!" is the weakest. This does not mean that 10cc forgot how to write great songs. It just means there focus grew a little wavery, and the split between the two creative forces Godley/Creme and Stewart/Gouldman became a little more defined on HDY!.
But what you will find are some absolutely gorgeous pieces of music on this album. "I'm Mandy Fly Me" should have convinced you by now that Eric Stewart has one of the nicest voices you've ever heard, and that in 4.00 many things can happen in a song. The beautiful "Lazy Ways" goes further along this point. I find "I Wanna Rule The World" absolutely hilarious and a definite precursor to acts like They Might Be Giants. "Iceberg" is absolutely demented, and fun, and a whole load of other things you wouldn't associate with schizophrenia. "Don't Hang Up" takes you on the wedding night, the honeymoon, the fallout with no reconciliation all in 6 minutes.

Reading a couple of these reviews reminds me of a comment the Emperor of Austria once made about Mozart, "too many notes." Well we don't know if that's exactly what he said (although how ironic if he had). History has demonstrated that the Emperor was wrong about Mozart. Sure the guy had his musical flaws but inventiveness wasn't one of them. We do know, however, that some folks consider this talented quartet to be too clever by half with too many notes for their liking. Personally, I'd take the criticism as a compliment.

Perhaps they are too clever. How boring the world would be without the daring shown here on their last album as a four piece. Lazy Ways and I'm Mandy Fly Me feature melodies filled to the brim with wit and as rich as anything the Beatles or Beach Boys dreamed up. I Wanna Rule The World reminds you why these guys were held in such high esteem by their peers (like the late Frank Zappa, John Lennon and still breathing Paul McCartney); it's a twisted turn down paranoia street that manages to entertain as it informs.

The second part of the CD (or what used to be side 2 on vinyl) beings with the strong track Art for Art's Sake. It was originally written around the time of their previous album The Original Soundtrack but unrecorded. AFAS manages to satirize the art world in the same fashion as the band's Worst Band in The World (from Sheet Music) did the music biz. The songs that follow AFAS prevents this fine album from taking on any water and sinking beneath the waves of mediocrity. "Don't Hang Up" plays like a mini rock opera (much the same as One Night in Paris) in the tradition of the Who's "A Quick One While He's Away".

I first bought this as a cassette tape in the mid-70's as a result of hearing their songs, "I'm Not in Love" and "Art for Art's Sake." I immediately fell in love with the tape even though I didn't quite know how to take it. The songs could be funny, sentimental, bitingly satirical, great Rock and Roll or out-and-out farcical. Sometimes within one song! I'm Mandy Fly Me, for example, is at once affecting and completely ridiculous - and one of my favorite songs of all time.
Some of the songs deal with twisted mental states (Iceberg, I Wanna Rule the World, and Don't Hang Up) and exhibit perfectly fitting changes in key, tempo, and meter. Others (Lazy Ways, Rock and Roll Lullaby) keep grooving throughout more subtle changes. But despite the terrain covered, they are always consistent with intelligent lyrics, great hooks, luscious vocals, deceptively complex tonal movement, and excellent arranging and execution.
This remains one of my favorite releases of all time.

This album was conceived, written, performed, produced, and engineered by four of the best musicians to ever record pop music (after the Beatles, obviously, but even they didn't produce their best work). This album is a gold mine of pop hooks, melodies, clever lyrics, and good music in the British tongue-in-cheek tradition. This was the culmination of 6-7 years work between these four, Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Lol Creme, and Kevin Godley, and it is a fine recording that, if you enjoy quality pop music, you must add to your collection. Everything here from the wistful to the bizarre, and I can't think of a better representation of '70s art rock (save maybe The Tubes 'Remote Control') available. One of my top ten favorite records of all time, all styles.
