Waps Stat (Apple Venus Part 2), XTC

If you like the XTC then you'll like this album. Stupidly happy is a great song. For XTC fans this album is closer to "Non-Such" in the sound and tempo. XTC is one of my all time favorite bands so I give a positive outlook. Out of all their albums this is in the middle of the pack. The band really evolved over their carrer and this being their last album it shows the maturity factor. I write this since there were no reviews on this album (though released in 2000) wich was totally surprising. Listen to "Church of women" from this album and then listen to " Down in the Cockpit" from "English Settlement" (One of the best albums released at the end of their touring period) and you see Andy Partridges appreciation for the finer sex. "The man who murdered love" is another song showing Andy Partridge's world turning to song with style. Makes me want to go back to 1979 and grow up with this band again. But no. at least no matter what the weather "You and the clouds will still be Beautiful". Bottom line is: Buy every XTC album. If you young start with "Drums and Wires" or "Black Sea".


This is a fantasitc release. I wish they would come out with another. There are no stinkers on the release at all. My two teenagers fell in love with this realease when it came out and there was nothing like it on the radio. Great song writting and melodies. If you are already a fan you will not be disappointed picking this up.

Too Long

It's a shame it took so long for this to be released and an even bigger shame that I waited until 2013 to purchase it - I hemmed and hawed on buying it when it was first released and then eventually forgot about it, and I'm sorry I did - it's as strong a release as anything that they put out and a true gem.


Formed: 1976 in Swindon, Wiltshire, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

XTC was one of the smartest -- and catchiest -- British pop bands to emerge from the punk and new wave explosion of the late '70s. From the tense, jerky riffs of their early singles to the lushly arranged, meticulous pop of their later albums, XTC's music has always been driven by the hook-laden songwriting of guitarist Andy Partridge and bassist Colin Moulding. While popular success has eluded them in both Britain and America, the group has developed a devoted cult following in both countries that...
