CD contains bonus tracks.
The first release by this Manchester quartet, recorded for novelty-minded pop eccentric Jonathan King's UK label, is a brilliant debut. Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme, all of whom sing and write, are smart-alecks of the first order, and nearly every track on this album is a near-perfect example of pop pastiche.
The mini-operetta opener, "Rubber Bullets," updates "Jailhouse Rock" for a more cynical age, while the dead-on '50s-pop parody "Donna" was straight-faced enough to become a Number One British single. The other eight tracks include the sly schoolyard romp "The Dean and I" and the mock-serious "Speed Kills." "Ships Don't Disappear (Do They?)" foreshadows the atmospheric art pop of their later, better-known albums, but most of 10CC is sharp satire disguised as bubblegum chart-pop. Amazingly, this artful deception works brilliantly on both levels.
