XTC: Wasp Star (Apple Venus Volume 2)

Wasp Star is the kind of album that can reinvigorate the listener in the belief that pop music is wonderful and hasn’t degenerated into carbon copy boy bands.

Small Time Crooks

Allen’s best work achieved greatness by being more than funny —by revealing or capturing something more substantive about human relationships. With Small Time Crooks, the substance comes from the unexpected satire of class differences that gets at something truer than a mere fish-out-of-water story.

As the show progressed, I couldn¹t help but notice that the set list consisted almost entirely of tracks from Figure 8


Road Trip (2000)

Most of the humor in Road Trip depends upon the audience identifying with the characters' sexual anxiety.
