XTC’s classic 1992 album, the first in a series of XTC albums reissues got a new life as CD/Blu-Ray edition. This web-package contains the original stereo mix, new instrumental mixes (made from the original multitrack tapes by Steven Wilson), and a lot of bonus material. Steve Wilson produced the new mixes with the input of founder band member Andy Partridge and the full approval of the band. Presented in special packaging with an expanded booklet and sleeve-notes by Andy Partridge, Colin Moulding and Dave Gregory.

Since Skylarking, each XTC album was carefully composed and crafted, and Nonsuch is no different. Working with producer Gus Dudgeon (Elton John), XTC crafted their most immaculate album to date with Nonsuch. A measured and reflective record, recalling the Beach Boys more than the Beatles, the album retains some of their late-’80s psychedelic flourishes, but those have been integrated into an elaborate, lush pop setting that falls somewhere between Skylarking and Oranges & Lemons. While it lacks the thematic unity of Skylarking, as well as the grandstanding eclecticism of Oranges & Lemons, Nonsuch is in many ways more musically consistent, presenting a set of 17 wonderfully detailed and immediately catchy pop songs, ranging from the relatively rocking “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead” to the sweet “Holly Up on Poppy.” Occasionally, the album dips slightly lyrically — Colin Moulding’s “The Smartest Monkeys” and “War Dance” are a little too preachy — but never musically, making Nonsuch a modest, minor masterpiece.
