This is such a great album to just listen to and relax. Todd Rundgren's production is so lush.
xtc were a great band, one of the most underated bands ever
One of the most overrateed :((
Dear God was one of the gutsiest recordings ever. (Wasn't even allowed on the original copy) Summers Cauldron/Grass is fantastic.
I guess it was OK for those dreadful 80's
This album transcends the era in which it was recorded. "Skylarking" has a timeless sound, spacious production, and generous yet temperate orchestral arrangements. Intelligent melodic songs with graceful,lyrical arrangements and expansive detailed instrumentation.This is a joyfully sublime experience.
I'm going to agree that Skylarking is XTC's peak of creativity. An oft-overlooked alternative band who often reminds me of elvis costello's early career.
Skylarking was XTC at their peak best cranking out witty, subtle pop songs. Dear God is the darkest and best track they ever wrote and is clearly the best here. Earn Enough for Us and Ballet for a Rainy Day are also excellent.
Dear God is an outstanding pop song. Great harmony, great lyrics, great overall feel. Very fun, while dark at the same time. I'm Impressed.
I agree, I used to have this on cassette
