Crispy, crunchy and ever so addictive. Contains more songs you know than you would at first realise. 'Drums and Wires' is also one of Colin Moulding's strongest songwriting collections - always a pleasure.
Indispensible perfect pop art with something for everyone. This is XTC at the peak of their accessibility.

Go 2 was a move forward (melodically) for the Swindon lads but their true emergence occurred when Barry Andrew's cheesy keyboards were removed in favour of Dave Gregory's sublime guitar playing.An extremely "catchy" album,this laid the basis for their more powerful follow-up (Black Sea) and subsequent move into quintessential English pastoral pop.Not a "duffer" on the album.A group moving from adolescence into adulthood.Excellent.

XTC mainman Andy Partridge is on record as saying that around the time of this LP was when the band "started to get half-decent". It's certainly a quantum jump from their first two LPs, mainly due to the solid production of late-70s/ early-80s studio guru Steve Lillywhite, and also the cool, mellow songwriting contributions of Colin Moulding (e.g. Day In Day Out, Ten Feet Tall and, of course, the breakthrough hit Making Plans For Nigel). These are generally more successful than Partridge's awkward, hit-and-miss efforts, although his Complicated Game, which closes the LP, is a blinder.

If you're a fan of XTC, then you MUST own this cd. Sure, you've heard it before, and it's already in your cd collection, but this remaster sounds amazing. Truly, there are little parts and bits that you've never heard, unless you bought the original vinyl and listened to it while pristine. And the packaging is just like a small version of the vinyl - no crystal box!
Now, if you're not really a XTC fan, and you've never owned a copy of this disc, you ALSO must by this! The songs are great, high-energy with witty twists and turns, and excellent guitar wranglings by Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory. It's brash and fun and, as I mentioned before, it sounds GREAT.

I absolutely love this album! I used to have it on vinyl and didn't replace it when we no longer had a turntable so I hadn't heard it for a long time. I had forgotten how brilliant it was. You can't help singing along to every track.

This album is an earlier example of the increasing complex and enjoyable music being produced by one of the most underrated bands of the 1980's and beyond. Contains the classic 'Making plans for Nigel' and such more more!
