Still Awesome after All The Years
on 12 June 2001
I can't believe it's been 20 years since the first time I bought this album as a UK import in the US. I thought this band was the bomb after buying their first US release Drums and Wires so I had to locate the earlier albums to complete the set. The tunes on this album didn't disappoint in 1980 and really nailed me down as a big XTC fan for life. I recently read that the original albums were being re-released on CD and I decided that I had to have the set to replace my worn and tired LPs. I'm glad I made the decision because this CD is as good or better than the LP of old. It's true to the album, including the cover art. A great piece of work that I will treasure for the next 20 years just as I have treasured the original LP.
