Skylarking is the ninth studio album by the English rock band XTC, released on 27 October 1986. Skylarking is a loose concept album centered around various cycles in life, such as the seasons, days, and years. Skylarking Q&A. Produced By Todd Rundgren.

Skylarking ‎ (LP, Album). M5G 24117, GEF M5G 24117. XTC - Skylarking (Full Album) 49:10. The meeting place 3:06.

Field music: Swindoners’ pastoral epiphany, finally as nature intende. ever in quite the right place at the right time, XTC might have only ever delivered near-misses, had a miserable experience not thrown up a definitive recording. Andy was saying how much he hated the album, and when we returned home, he was very depressed about it – but having said that, Skylarking is probably my favourite XTC album.

It may also stand as their like in quality. It may also stand as their like in quality. XTC has been something of a well hidden secret by their limited but frighteningly zealous fan base.
