AllMusic Review by

Multi-instrumentalists Kevin Godley and Lol Creme were members of quirky art-pop hitmakers 10cc, but they broke out on their own to pursue more exotic ideas. Their first album as a duo was the stunningly ambitious CONSEQUENCES. Originally released in 1977 as a three-LP box, it's a willfully demented tour de force that sounds like nothing you've ever heard before: avant-garde clangor, harmony-laden pop, orchestral snatches, oddball sound effects, Peter Cook delivering absurdist spoken-word interludes--it's like a skewed conflation of the Mothers of Invention, Monty Python, Bonzo Dog Band, the Beach Boys' SMILE, and the Beatles' “Revolution 9.”
