Download XTC - Black Sea

XTC continue on with the big drum sound of Drums and Wiresadding more polish and an even heavier-hitting approach for Black Sea -- their arrangements are fuller and they rock harder than ever before.

Where Drums and Wires implied social commentary, Black Sea more directly addresses sociopolitical concerns, handling them not strictly in a theoretical sense, but rather showing a human response to the circumstances. Of course, the band's skewed outlook and mid-'60s pop sense keeps things from becoming too heavy -- included are some of their finest songs, like "Respectable Street," "Generals and Majors," and XTC - Black Sea of London," as well as the thoroughly enjoyable pop fluff throwaway "Sgt.

Rock Is Going to Help Me " to keep the mood light. And while the extras are welcomed especially "Don't Lose Your Temper"they really should have been tacked on to the end rather than disrupting the original. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.

Just wanted to add that reviews here seem to cover ALL Black Sea releases, and often focus on the album itself. This review is for the remix / remaster/5(70).
  8. All in all, there isn't a bad song in the bunch -- Black Sea is their most consistent album to date -- and although XTC always operated on the fringes, the album is their most commercial-sounding, fitting in perfectly with the new wave of the late '70s/early '80s. [The CD reissue adds three tracks -- "Smokeless Zone," "Don't Lose Your Temper," and "The Somnambulist" -- to the middle of the album.9/
