Skylarking



        Todd Rundgren teamed up with Andy and Colin for this album and it remains XTC's best album ever.

        Sort of a concept album about the cycle of life, more just a tour de force of XTC's quirky goodness. This album is what gave us Dear God, which is the love XTC or hate XTC litmus test, but that isn't the best song. That honor goes to Grass, which is based on a great double entendre. Wait, I take that back, the best song is Earn Enough For Us. That track is just an amazing pop song.

        XTC wasn't ever going to be a megastar act, but their stuff is fun to listen to every once in a while.
