  • XTC 's Apple Venus, Vol. 1 is the first new album in seven years for this beloved, ambitious British band. The album's sound leans heavily on orchestral and acoustic arrangements, for what the band's main songwriter Andy Partridge terms an "orch-oustic" sound.
  • Apple Venus Volume 1 () was the long-awaited album from England's XTC following a "strike" with Virgin Records. This album is without Dave Gregory, an important member who contributed heavily to the band's sound through excellent guitar and keyboards in past albums/5().
  • All the tracks from Apple Venus Vol 1 and Wasp Star are paired together with one addition, the XTC song 'Where Did The Ordinary People Go', which was only previously available as a digital download. As a special bonus there is a 7 inch single version of the tracks 'Spiral' and 'Say It' in its own picture bag.
  • XTC have released twelve original albums, six EPs and over thirty singles since being signed to Virgin Records in Contents[show] XTC studio albums The Dukes of Stratosphear releases Compilations, instrumentals, demos, live and tribute albums (with chart position) Take Away / The Lure of Salvage () Waxworks: Some Singles () #54 (United Kingdom) Beeswax: Some B-Sides .
  • My favorite tracks are EASTER THEATRE and KNIGHTS IN SHINING KARMA, the latter being a more melodic and hypnotic piece. This album is a bit hard to get used to, but after a few spins, it really resonates. This album contrasts their second Apple Venus album, which has less depth but more punch to it. Overall, Volume 1 is essential XTC. 8/10Reviews:
