10cc: The Original Soundtrack

Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 19 June 1975

10cc's Original Soundtrack is a fascinating record. Musically there's more going on than in ten Yes albums, yet it's generally as accessible as a straight pop band (though less so than the two preceding 10cc LPs). Lyrically 10cc pose an alternative to timeworn lovelorn laments or tortuous interior monologs: They deploy clichés for multilevel effect and utilize hyperbole and parable intelligently.
