Is 10cc prog? Take the Art from Art-Rock and the Pop-From Pop-Rock and you have the style of Art/Pop - Home to 10cc. This CD has the classic Dreadlock Holidays - a not prog reggae tune that is infectious and funny..

I have never been a big fan of Dreadlock Holiday, but Reggae never interested me all that much either. Having said this, the song is fun and kicks off Bloody Tourists with an offbeat vibe. Unfortunately for a lot of people, after this and the following track For You And I, Bloody Tourists was dissapointing when compared to the previous Deceptive Bends LP. I agree somewhat as some of the material is rather lackluster compared to their earlier work, but the charm of 10cc for me was it always took several listens to each of their albums before I ‘got it’ and this album was no exception. There are hooks galore, witty lyricism typical of any 10cc record and it’s one I still play every few months, becoming one of my favorite albums in the groups catalog. Nice.
