So much time passes
So much life held back
Takes just a few notes in a sequence
And the images come rushing in
The waters, the flood
I walk for a while in silence
Working my way back to that time
What if the line was wiped from existence?
Nothing's stopping you from drifting back and forth
You can go home again but not like what you find
Your memories are blind
Everything is simulated
Rolled out on a line
And time and time again you see that everyone is partaking
Confident but still mistaking it

The title says it all; Garden of Earthly Delights is this generation's newest Celebration of XTC.
Any doubts about the sincerity, just go straight to Chris Price's "Ballad..."
From there, Xplore then get back to the original XTC. Anthony B Cook
ALBUM OF THE YEAR, easily.
effortlessly on a par with X's vintage catalogue, "Alphabetland" is a solid testimony of a band as vibrant, creative and urgent as ever. Honestly, it's THAT good. Strongly recommended. ramblinerikk
