Sequenced and produced by the legendary Todd Rundgren, 1986's Skylarking is perhaps the most acclaimed of all XTC's releases.

An album unlike anything else in the band's back catalogue, dense orchestrations and a more organic soundscape were deployed in servicing some of the band's most melodically rich and sophisticated songs.
