XTC - Skylarking
I'll be totally honest here, I have no cool when it comes to Skylarking by XTC. This album is why I love music. A beautifully constructed journey that is full of twists, tiny little details and the best songs of XTC's career. They may have ended up clashing with producer Todd Rundgren, but the truth is he helped shaped this masterpiece with his gorgeous production. Finally back in print and finally a release that contains both Mermaid Smiled and Dear God. Approved by Andy Partridge, this could be the definitive version. Must listen tracks - Earn Enough For Us, Grass and Season Cycle.
