This review is from: Fossil Fuel: The XTC Singles Collection 1977 - 1992 (Audio CD)
A chronological collection of XTC's singles for Virgin these highlight the band's development from post-punk power poppers to sublime songwriting craftsmen...slightly quirky lyrics and off kilter rhythms separate them from most bands' output, and there is an edge to Andy Partridge's songwriting which makes you think there is a dark side to his personality reflected in his songs...Colin Moulding is more pop oriented but still entertaining for all that. "Senses working overtime" is my favourite here, but there are at least half a dozen others that deserve the epithet "classics". Great collection.
