Ten Out Of 10
Nov. 1981

紙ジャケCD!

80年のワールドツアー終了後、Duncan Mackayが脱退、10ccは再び
EricとGrahamの二人になり、残りのメンバーはサポートという関係になりました。
Rick Fenn、Paul Burgessに加えて、新キーボーディストとしてSad Cafeの
Vic Emersonが参加しています。しかし、Stuart Toshはなぜか参加せず、
ドラムスはPaulと、Simon Phillipsがゲストで叩いています。
曲は、前作からのAOR路線を更に強めたもので、ファンの間でも賛否両論ありますが、
個人的な感想を書けば少なくとも前作よりはメロディは洗練されていると思います。
詩も、辛辣、叙情的、ミステリアス、ユーモラスと、いろいろなタイプが揃っています。
ただ、ダンサブルポップ全盛のこの時期、リスナーの支持は思いのほか低く、
チャート面では奮いませんでした。
なお、米国盤だけは制作陣にAndrew Goldが加わり、
彼の参加した3曲を含め4曲が差し替えられました。
この3曲は英国ではシングルとしてのみの発売になりました。
この時のコラボレイトがきっかけで、
Common Knowledge=WAXが誕生したのは周知の通りです。
