"in a few words, this is NOT traditional crass. it bears no resemblence to feeding of the 5000 or stations of the crass but the lyrics to these poetic songs are still political and subversive. if your a true crass fan you should appreciate this album."

"The first of the two 10 Notes tracks is the only one I really listen to. The second is an instrumental(!) I personally am not going to listen to Crass for instrumentals, even though they had forged a definitive sound, instrumentally, this was a far cry from recognizable Crass. The first track has it's moments of greatness but I'd think that for one of the last recordings of Crass that Steve Ignorant would have sang more. It's a beautiful song, nonetheless."
Not bad for a conclusion for a band

"This kind of reminds me of Yes Sir, I Will because the lyrics are kind of like in that style. Don't expect it to be completly like the other albums because one of the guitarists left before this album was made. the 2nd song (which for the LP version would considered to be the B side) is an all instrumental (and the only instrumental from the band). The album (like Yes Sir I Will) is all one song but split into 2 tracks and, as the name of the album suggests, is 10 notes that are spoken and sung. I know that this is only 20 minutes long altogether, but it is very unique. They also use a electronic keyboard and it kind of sounds like something you would hear from a Sega Genesis game (mainly Strider for those who are into games as well.). I think overall (about the band) was very good. I really think that in the struggle with the War on Terrorism, Crass needs to make more recordings. Damn their band's promises (just this one). Breaking up in 1984 and never reforming again. Come back Crass!! if you are a fan, this is a must have. if you are new to Crass, start with Yes Sir I Will or The Feeding of the 5000, Stations of the Crass and Penis Envy (make sure that if you get that album that you get one of the other ones along with that one.) If you hate Crass because you hate their Instrumental structure, go on with other bands. If you hate Crass not only because you hate their instrumentals but also you don't fully understand what the songs were all about and they were serious all the time...... well, I hate to say it, but they were the first Anarchist Punk band ever and as more bands came out, a lot of their songs were political and maybe you just aren't into that kind of music. Anarchist Punk was about the message, not the music. please keep this in mind."
