This was the album that got me hooked on XTC. I bought the single US vinyl wish I knew it was released as a double album after hearing it at a friends house. It wasn't until I purchased the CD with the additional tracks that I realised there was so much more great music that I was missing! Yacht Dance is one of my favorites. I think they were just peaking during this period. I was bummed when they cancelled their tour around this time. DonnyMe , Jul 4, Location: Leeds, U.
The first UK version of the CD missed off two or three tracks for some reason. The UK vinyl is a very wonderful thing. Several countries issued a one-disc vinyl version. As usual with XTC, there are several fabulous tracks on the b-sides of the singles from the album. Location: Newcastle, WA.
Relatively free of '80s production in the mixing; a big reason why it's such a classic. They kept overdubs to a minimum as well. All the hallmarks of s production are gone, even the synths that playfully dance across the album somehow sound perfectly at home. The production, like the album, is timeless.
Much like their ambiguity, their best album is often fought over. All are masterpieces. Normal service will resume as soon as lockdown restrictions are lifted. You can still be active on our Community. Please hit us up with any questions. Album Review: Steely Dan — Gaucho. Spotify Amazon.

Now Virgin is reissuing the whole batch again, from 's White Music to 's Nonsuch , the band's last album with the label.
For a test, I picked up the new edition of English Settlement and compared it to my twelve year-old CD-- which, by the way, has no scratches or flaws, and the ink, contrary to legend, hasn't eaten through the plastic and corroded the disc. There is no reason to replace it. Except that the new one actually sounds better. Comparing it on a good stereo, it's obvious that the sound is bigger and crisper, and the instruments are more clearly differentiated. Check out "Yacht Dance": it's like somebody wiped off a layer of grime.
And now that I've listened to this, even my old copy of Drums and Wires sounds muddy. These reissues are now trickling into the States, and Go 2 , Black Sea , and English Settlement -- their second, fourth and fifth records, respectively-- came at the end of last month. Each disc gets bit remastered sound and a better booklet. The only difference is that this time, the bonus tracks are at the end instead of the middle.
