This was the first time I had ever heard XTC. I'm not even sure what to compare it to! :p Heard some Talking Heads type music in there at times. I thought the music and mix were a lot of fun though!

I don't think it's the absolute best, but it is a great one. I have others that I like better, but it's subjective of course.

Listened to XTC: Drums and Wires last night DTS-MA 5.1 and WOW, what...
