Sorry for the really late reply, haven't looked in for a while.
Skylarking is like all of the other SW XTC releases, stellar.
Originally to me Skylarking was not in my top 3 or 4 XTC favorites.
I liked a few songs but I was used to XTC albums\cds sounding great and this one sounded tizzy, or just off.
With the "corrected polarity" cd that all changed it now had such an easy to listen to flow like a languid stream.
The 5.1 is even more so and I've only had time to listen once.
What I really like about these releases is the instrumental only tracks. Just brilliant.
Like Skylarking, the re-release of Nonsuch was another revelation.
Like everyone else just praying we get Black Sea, ES, Mummer and Big Express.
To expand a bit, I'll finally have some time this week to catch up on some stuff, particularly the KC 80's box, more Skylarking, Stand Up & Out of Time.
