The problem with Bloody Tourists is that it feels like a group of session musicians trying to come up with songs in the 10cc style instead of a proper 10cc album. However, the album's singles present a few bright moments: "For You And I" is a lovely ballad that fortifies its attractive melody with some strong vocal harmonies and "Dreadlock Holiday" chronicles the exploits of a hapless tourist in Jamaican against a catchy pop-reggae backdrop. Sadly, these are the first two tracks on the album so when they have passed there isn't much to look forward to.
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The result is this brilliant album. I realize that "Bloody Tourists" is typically considered a disappointment compared to "Deceptive Bends", but it appears to me to be very much the other way around. On "Deceptive Bends", it sounds like Stewart & Gouldman weren't quite prepared to step up and fill the void left by Godley & Creme, but were forcing themselves to do it anyway despite being short on ideas.
