XTC – Oranges And Lemons – Cassette
Oranges and Lemons is the eleventh studio album by the English rock band XTC, released on February 27, 1989. XTC was known for their eclectic and innovative approach to pop and rock music, incorporating elements of new wave, psychedelia, and art rock into their sound.
“Oranges and Lemons is a double album that features a diverse range of musical styles and influences. The album showcases XTC’s knack for crafting catchy melodies, clever lyrics, and intricate arrangements. It includes tracks such as “The Mayor of Simpleton,” “King for a Day,” and “Garden of Earthly Delights,” which blend pop sensibilities with thought-provoking and often introspective lyrics.
The album’s title, Oranges and Lemons, is derived from a traditional English nursery rhyme and reflects the band’s continued exploration of their British identity. The album cover, designed by renowned artist Dave Gibbons, features a colorful and surreal depiction of a cityscape.
Oranges and Lemons received positive reviews from critics, who praised its songwriting quality and the band’s musical versatility. While it didn’t achieve significant commercial success at the time of its release, the album has since gained a dedicated following and is considered a fan favorite.
XTC disbanded in 2006, but their music continues to be celebrated for its creativity and innovation. Oranges and Lemons stands as a testament to their artistic vision and remains an important part of their discography.
