XTC - Drums and Wires

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: xtc__drums_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This is an original Minty Virgin British Import LP with Little Sign of Play (LSOP) that includes a bonus 7-inch single. The record plays quiet and sounds EXCELLENT! The cover has some damage on the seams and corners and rates an 8 out of 10.

"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." - AMG

XTC - English Settlement

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: xtc__engli_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This is an AMAZINGLY well-recorded album, with huge amounts of open studio space and that Tubey Magical, rich, fat, dense British Rock Sound that we go crazy for here at Better Records.

If you have big speakers and a big room in which to play them this album -- on the right pressing -- can be quite the sonic tour de force. Credit HUGH PADGHAM, producer and engineer, who's worked with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Genesis, The Police, Yes and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

XTC - English Settlement

What to Listen For

  (Item #: xtc__engli_wtlf_2017) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF).

For Big Production Rock Albums like English Settlement there are some obvious problem areas that are often heard on at least one or two sides of practically any copy of this four sided album.

With so many heavily-produced instruments crammed into the soundfield, if the overall sound is at all veiled, recessed or smeared -- problems common to 90+% of the records we play in our shootouts -- the mix quickly becomes opaque, forcing the listener to work too hard to separate out the elements of interest.

A Big Speaker Record if ever there was one.

XTC - Nonsuch

Reviewed in 2005

  (Item #: xtc__nonsu_2005) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Two Virgin British Import LPs from 1982.

Playing this album I was strongly reminded of one of my all time favorites: Jellyfish's Spilt Milk. Since that album came out a year after this one, there's a very good chance they were influenced by this XTC record.

If you like this one you will probably like that one and vice versa.
