Excellent remix..fabulous sound quality.
Dale D.
It's a nice bonus track to have and a terrific song from Moulding that fits the feel of the album (it's placed at the end of the CD).

In a world of low quality audio (mp3) listening to great music at higher bit/sampling rates on a good stereo system brings me back to when listening to music was an important activity and not background noise to life.
I loved the original CD for its beautiful music and songwriting and now I can enjoy it at the highest quality currently available.
Really good music should be actively listened too and this DVD is one I would recommend for all the reasons one would want to sit and enjoy the experience. Beautifully recorded, written and performed the experience is enhanced at higher audio quality. Sit listen and take in the artistry and music becomes a part of the fabric of your life and not wallpaper.

All I can say about this excellent work is THANK YOU ANDY PARTRIDGE & STEVEN WILSON!!! A masterpiece of modern music that has finally gotten it's due!! Worth every penny!!! Also want to remind fans of XTC that guitarist Dave Gregory is currently working with Big Big Train and Tin Spirits creating more work of exceptional, high-quality musical art. If you haven't checked out these bands, do so NOW!! You won't be sorry! AND I also want everyone to know that I recently read online that Steven Wilson has said that he will probably be remixing more of XTC's catalog!!! I can barely WAIT!! This is just FANTASTIC NEWS!!!

This and Skylarking are up there with the beatles best. The remastered version is worth the extra money. Andy Partridge is a genius.

Steve Wilson is a 5.1 mixologist. Unbelievable sonics. Awesome pop rock. This is the disc you play to show off your system. Superb!!

Cult band XTC finally broke through in the U.S. with the cult hit single "Dear God" (they had almost broken through with their previous MTV staple "Senses Working Overtime") and, hoping to built on that success released a series of strong albums in rapid succession with singles that also had high profile singles for the band ("Mayor Simpleton", "King for a Day") which leads us to the band's last album before their "strike" (for those that don't know the band went on strike and refused to record until Virgin records modified their recording contract with fairer terms or until their contract ran out) "Nonsuch" which uses a similiarly template to the strong "Skylarking".

Produced by the late Gus Dudgeon (Elton John, David Bowie), the band were never exactly thrilled with the final version so when Partridge decided to release a high definition version he asked Porcupine Tree's Steve Wilson to do a remix of the album. The remix on the CD sounds good but I could have done without the use of limiting on the CD. The CD here isn't quite as dynamic as the original but is better than the 2001 reissue.

Be aware that, unlike the original CD and vinyl, this version does not have the cross fades between tracks. There is also some limiting applied which impacts the dynamics on the CD somewhat. This was encouraged by Wilson (perhaps keeping in mind that many fans rip CDs to their hard drive or play item back on iPods, iPhones and devices like Squeezebox. Without the cross fades, it's a much cleaner break for those listening on playlists or randomly) so if you like the cross fades you may want to keep your earlier edition.

Format: Audio CD
British New Wave/Alternative Pop band XTC's tenth full-length release, Nonsuch, was both a continuation and a natural progress, as the trio build upon - and refined - the sound and style of their preceding albums, in particular their two previous LPs, 1986's Skylarking and 1989's Oranges & Lemons. Recorded with a small group of session musicians and produced by Gus Dudgeon (Elton John), Nonsuch showcases XTC at their very best and in all their eccentric glory.
Featuring all of seventeen sophisticated songs, many of which draw on various sources of influence, Nonsuch is an eclectic, kaleidoscopic and idiosyncratic album - XTC's magnum opus in every sense of the word. A carefully and cleverly crafted masterpiece, Nonsuch might very well be the most fascinating, multifaceted record of the 1990s.
