L is the second album by Godley & Creme. It was released in 1978. Its 34-minute running time was a stark contrast with that of the ill-received triple concept album Consequences. The album wasn't entirely well received, however.
The songs contained much variation and artistry, dissonances, complex time signatures and melodies, clever, poetical lyrics, and some wonderful echoes from Frank Zappa's Over-Nite Sensation. Beautifully produced, the album was played almost completely by Godley and Creme, except for saxophones, and a brief vocal cameo by Paul Gambaccini.
The lyrics retained the satirical stance of some 10cc material with songs such as "The Sporting Life" and "Art School Canteen", which deal with suicide and art school angst. The album wasn't successful commercially.
