English Settlement was the moment when XTC decided to do what every band should do at some point in their lifetime - make the sprawling over-indulged double album. Yet it was this freedom that enabled the band to play in different styles other than their hitherto seen arty agit pop. It marked a move towards the the eccentric and pastoral music they would subsequently mine over the rest of their career and it spawned a top 10 hit in Senses Working Overtime. It might take you a week to get through it but it will be worth it.
