Album Review

Late 2012 saw a flurry of activity from 10cc, including the release of an excellent career-spanning box set called Tenology, but perhaps the most noteworthy development on this front was the release of Love and Work, Graham Gouldman's first album in 12 years. Gouldman dedicates Love and Work to his late friend and Wax partner Andrew Gold and that isn't just a matter of sentiment; the album pares back Gouldman's lingering eccentricities and focuses entirely on his precision popcraft, a skill that's been at the foundation of his music since the Hollies. Here, the vibe is gentle and reflective but never melancholy, the songs are sculpted but never fussy, the melodies unfurl with an elegant grace. All these qualities speak to Gouldman's status as a pop veteran, one who is comfortable with his legacy and where he resides now, but the remarkable thing about Love and Work is how it builds upon what Gouldman has done before. Much of this sounds as if it could have been a soft rock hit between 1977 and 1982, an era when McCartney-derived pop often hit the charts, so it has a familiarity but it also has a freshness due to how Gouldman refuses to chase after a nonexistent hit. He's simply making artful, exceptionally crafted pop, which is more than enough to turn Love and Work into something of a small gem.

Love and work

Great easy listening music from graham, reminders of his early work and a lot more. Well done mr gouldman.

Quality from 2.5cc

This is an album of quality songs from the voice of 10cc's "Dreadlock Holiday". Sadly only the 3rd solo album he's ever produced (not including the soundtrack album for "Animalympics").but on a par with his previous album. My favourite is his first album, which is pre-10cc and showcases the songs he wrote for other bands in the 60s when he was 'just' a professional songwriter.

I always thought Graham's 10cc material was some of the best, so snap up anything he has his hand in. This album only disappoints in one respect - he actually only wrote 3 of the songs, which surprised me because he is known as a songwriter and because all of these songs sound like he wrote them. For this reason only I deduct one star from my rating.

Fantastic

This albumn is one if the best I've bought in a long time. Graham Gouldman is pure genius!! Love it!!
