I find this pressing to sound fairly good. Anyone has compared this release to UK or US releases?

Anyone know why this version doesn't have Making Plans for Nigel on it?

Does L37059 refer to the accompanying single, Chain of Command?

Original US releases have a mangled track list- Starts off with non-album single Life Begins at the Hop, Day In Day Out is removed and worst of all Making Plans for Nigel has been moved to track 3. Not having the album start out with the thudding drums is just criminal.

After 'White Music' and 'Go-2' this is where XTC really blended their agitated /frenetic pure pop with a confidence (if not yet a maturity) to allow good songs to develop and linger (sometimes for five minutes plus!). This is an album of transitional moods, from bursts and blasts of glorious, joyous nonsense ('Helicopter', 'Outside World') to reflective rat-race contemplation ('Day in, Day Out', 'Millions'). The album finisher 'Complicated Game' is a superb angsty monologue eventually obliterated by the band's Drums and Wires. The additional tracks here are OK, and don't spoil the album.
Ah, to be young again, when a job in British Steel 'may' have been a good idea!
