If you don't have the Steven Wilson remix of this album, you need to remedy that situation immediately.  Revelatory!

Hey @RP ! 
Why always and only this song of Skylarking, the album is full of great songs ...  do you want to save on broadcasting rights ?

A favorite of mine from the moment it was released all those years ago. Thanks Bill!

"Unmelodic, meandering prog-rock"?  Have you heard any XTC songs other than this one?  They were one of the most melodic bands of their time, they generally wrote short poppy tunes that didn't meander, and "prog-rock"?  WTF?

 
PErhaps sour grapes, the losing candidate in the race for The Mayor of Simpleton?

Indeed it is.  In fact, I think I'll put it on right now.  {#Guitarist}

I must admit I never saw the point of XTC. Plenty of bands did the unmelodic, meandering prog-rock thing before them. That seam's been mined out.

Does there need to be a point to them?

They just made brilliant music: Harvest Festival, Wounded Horse, Books Are Burning, etc. the list is a very long one.

You should listen to Rundgren's terrific conversation with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast (episode #691). He tells an awesome story about the difficult times he had with Partridge making this album. The entire conversation is great but this segment is towards the end. Highly recommended if you are a Rundgren fan.
