Black Sea
New Import - APELP104
Sealed 2019 200gm Remastered Reissue, Cut From New Masters Approved By Andy Partridge. "Xtc Continue On With The Big Drum Sound Of Drums And Wires, Adding More Polish And An Even Heavier-hitting Approach For Black Sea -- Their Arrangements Are Fuller And They Rock Harder Than Ever Before. Where Drums And Wires Implied Social Commentary, Black Sea More Directly Addresses Sociopolitical Concerns, Handling Them Not Strictly In A Theoretical Sense, But Rather Showing A Human Response To The Circumstances. Of Course, The Band's Skewed Outlook And Mid-'60s Pop Sense Keeps Things From Becoming Too Heavy -- Included Are Some Of Their Finest Songs, Like "Respectable Street," "Generals And Majors," And "Towers Of London," As Well As The Thoroughly Enjoyable Pop Fluff Throwaway "Sgt. Rock (Is Going To Help Me)" To Keep The Mood Light. All In All, There Isn't A Bad Song In The Bunch -- Black Sea Is Their Most Consistent Album To Date -- And Although Xtc Always Operated On The Fringes, The Album Is Their Most Commercial-sounding, Fitting In Perfectly With The New Wave Of The Late '70s/early '80s." AMG Review By Chris Woodstra. more

Drums And Wires
Used - LP - V 2129
1979 UK Original With Custom Insert And The Bonus 7" Single. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Following Go 2, Keyboardist Barry Andrews Left XTC And, Rather Than Finding A Replacement Keyboard Player, The Band Opted To Recruit Another Guitarist (Who Could Also Play Keyboards), Dave Gregory. The Album That Followed The Lineup Change, Drums And Wires, Marks A Turning Point For The Band, With A More Subdued Set Of Songs That Reflect An Increasing Songwriting Proficiency. The Aimless Energy Of The First Two Albums Is Focused Into A Cohesive Statement With A Distinctive Voice That Retains Their Clever Humor, Quirky Wordplay, And Decidedly British Flavor. Musically, Drums And Wires, Titled To Reflect The Big Drum Sound They Developed For The Album, Is Certainly Driven By The Powerful Rhythms And Angular, Mainly Minimalistic Arrangements, But The Addition Of A Second Guitarist Also Allows For Some Inventive And Interesting Guitar Work (The "Wires") That Made Up For The Lack Of Andrews' Odd Flourishes -- The Tension Between The Two Sounds Creates Some Truly Inspired, Nervy Pop. Colin Moulding Also Comes Into His Own As A Songwriter, Penning XTC's First Substantial Hit, The New Wave Classic "Making Plans For Nigel." Chris Woodstra, All Music Guide. more

Nonsuch
New - LP - V 2699
New, Unplayed Very Limited 1992 UK Only 2LP Original With Custom Inner Sleeves. “Since Skylarking, Each XTC Album Was Carefully Composed And Crafted, And Nonsuch Is No Different. Working With Producer Gus Dudgeon (Elton John), XTC Crafted Their Most Immaculate Album To Date With Nonsuch. A Measured And Reflective Record, Recalling The Beach Boys More Than The Beatles, The Album Retains Some Of Their Late-'80s Psychedelic Flourishes, But Those Have Been Integrated Into An Elaborate, Lush Pop Setting That Falls Somewhere Between Skylarking And Oranges & Lemons. While It Lacks The Thematic Unity Of Skylarking, As Well As The Grandstanding Eclecticism Of Oranges & Lemons, Nonsuch Is In Many Ways More Musically Consistent, Presenting A Set Of 17 Wonderfully Detailed And Immediately Catchy Pop Songs, Ranging From The Relatively Rocking "The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead" To The Sweet "Holly Up On Poppy." Occasionally, The Album Dips Slightly Lyrically -- Colin Moulding's "The Smartest Monkeys" And "War Dance" Are A Little Too Preachy -- But Never Musically, Making Nonsuch A Modest, Minor Masterpiece.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more

New - LP - GHS 24117
Sealed 1986 Original With The Original Tower Records $8.44 Price Tag Dated 02-87 Still On The Shrink Wrap. Sadly, This Is An LP That Should Be Considered A Gem Of A Listen. “Working With Producer Todd Rundgren Didn't Necessarily Bring XTC A Sense Of Sonic Cohesion -- After All, Every Record Since English Settlement Followed Its Own Interior Logic -- But It Did Help The Group Sharpen Its Focus, Making Skylarking Its Tightest Record Since Drums And Wires. Ironically, Skylarking Had Little To Do With New Wave And Everything To Do With The Lush, Post-Psychedelic Pop Of The Beatles And Beach Boys. Combining The Charming Pastoral Feel Of Mummer With The Classicist English Pop Of The Big Express, XTC Expand Their Signature Sound By Enhancing Their Intelligently Melodic Pop With Graceful, Lyrical Arrangements And Sweeping, Detailed Instrumentation. Rundgren May Have Devised The Sequencing, Helping The Record Feel Like A Song Cycle Even If It Doesn't Play Like One, But What Really Impresses Is The Consistency And Depth Of Andy Partridge's And Colin Moulding's Songs. Each Song Is A Small Gem, Marrying Sweet, Catchy Melodies To Decidedly Adult Lyrical Themes, From Celebrations Of Love ("Grass") And Marriage ("Big Day") To Skepticism About Maturation ("Earn Enough For Us") And Religion ("Dear God"). Moulding's Songs Complement Partridge's Songs Better Than Before, And Each Writer Is At A Melodic And Lyrical Peak, Which Rundgren Helps Convey With His Supple Production. The Result Is A Pop Masterpiece -- An Album That Has Great Ambitions And Fulfills Them With Ease. The Initial Release Of Skylarking Didn't Feature "Dear God," Which Was Originally The B-Side Of "Grass." After "Dear God" Became An Unexpected Hit, "Mermaid Smile" Was Pulled From The Album So The Hit Single Could Be Added.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more
