Interesting, but not essential experimental album from xtc

"Not all experiments have good results. This album, while interesting, isn't a very compelling addition to the XTC canon. Really, for all intends and purposes, this is an Andy solo album reworking some key XTC tracks from various albums.As such, it probably should have been released on cd as an Andy Partridge side project(akin to the Lennon/Ono TWO VIRGINS and Harrison's ELECTRONIC SOUNDS lps/Cds). Has some interesting moments."
Unlike other XTC, but nonetheless compelling

"Unlike the rich sonic texture of most XTC albums, the arrangements on the album are rather sparse. However, I find them compelling and enjoyable."
