XTC - English Settlement download album

English Settlement is the fifth studio album by the English band XTC, released on 12 February 1982, and their first double album. The album reached No. 5 on the UK Album Chart for an 11-week chart stay, and No. 48 on the Billboard 200 album chart for a 20-week stay. The album's music style marked a turn towards the more pastoral pop songs that would dominate later XTC releases, with increased use of acoustic guitar and fretless bass

Released with two printed inner sleeves. Recorded at The Manor, Oxfordshire, England, August 1981.

Despite several terrific tracks, English Settlement seems more a transitional album than anything else, although the textural sound of the album is quite remarkable, indicating the direction they would take in their post-touring incarnation.

Settlement" comes off as a semi-concept album, sampling the rebellious optimism (not to mention the occasional musical idea) of the first psychedelic era of the late 60's and applying it to a series of vignettes that explore youth, gender roles, history, and, most of all, the comforts and pitfalls of tradition. In the end, the pastoral vibe of the album reflects a kind of disillusionment for the scene that was evolving around them
