    Do I have to be the one to say it? You’re the man.

  2. cliff, can you tell me something about the band the Rhythm Method? It’s like one of those band names I must have bypassed in cutout bins for years. I can’t place them, their era, etc, but that song was catchy and a very good cross-section of the set’s songs.

    Man, that XTC song demonstrates so many of the highs and lows that later-period XTC dragged me through. That “Yeah, what do you think of that” part needs to be erase from the song. It bums me out every chorus; maybe if they’d only used it at the end, but having it on every chorus sounds as programmed as the drums on the later albums. That said, the verse melody is typically excellent and the build-ups to the chorus are good and very much in XTC’s wheelhouse.

    Finally, gotta love any episode that includes some Canned Heat!
