How Dare You! opens with an instrumental which tells you something about the album, namely that the level of instrumental skill is slightly higher here compared to earlier albums and that there are more guitar solos and other instrumental passages allowed. The songs are not as completely vocal driven as on earlier albums.

The sarcasm, sillyness and the humour is still very much here, but the lyrics are still slightly better and more sophisticated than on previous albums. The arrangements are a bit better as well. The production value is high, and the sound is good.

There is also much less of the annoying boogie-woogie, rock 'n' roll that plagued previous albums (Rubber Bullets anyone?).

From a Prog perspective there is little, if anything, to enjoy here.

This is possibly 10cc's best album, and a good place to start if you want to explore this band. Still, like all 10cc albums, this is for fans and collectors only. Needless to say, 10cc is not a band I like very much.
