For anyone new to XTC I would recommend listening to a couple of their albums before deciding if you like them or not (or go for the singles collection Fossil Fuel.) The early stuff is MASSIVELY different to the later stuff. I think most people start with Skylarking but the first one I heard was Drums and Wires, and it's still my favorite.

What a band! For 15 years each album was better than the last - I can't think of any other band where I would say that.

Amazing group. XTC can very well sit on the shoulders of giants like the Beatles and the Stones. Lots of groups can put out great songs...this group put out great ALBUMS.
