Black Sea' saw XTC move permanently away from the high-pitched nervous energy of their earlier works to a far more 'rock' sounding band (later to be eclipsed by pastoral then psychedelic flavoured releases) ' is an excellent ode to miscommunication) the attention grabbing, hook-laden singles are probably the weakest tracks on the album strangely, as is the mood of the album which, despite it's up-tempo nature seems dark and complex (rather like the sleeve cover!).

Of course, the band's skewed outlook and mid-'60s pop sense keeps things from becoming too heavy - included are some of their finest songs, like "Respectable Street," "Generals and Majors," and "Towers of London," as well as the thoroughly enjoyable pop fluff throwaway "Sgt. Rock (Is Going to Help Me)" to keep the mood light.

In 1980 their British tour partners XTC released their successful album Black Se. Johnnie and David Hepworth turn the spotlight onto two key long players – in 1985 the Village Voice critics poll voted Talking Heads Little Creatures album of the year. Five years earlier the American band had toured with Britain’s XTC (and released Remain In Light)

XTC - Black Sea. Black and decorous. The trouble with writing about XTC is that you can’t in good faith describe any one album as their pinnacle. The swines pulled one after another out of the bag. Nevertheless, there’s a strong case for nominating 1980’s Black Sea as the sweet spot in XTC’s imperial phase as a perma-touring four-piece experimental pop group.

XTC was a New Wave band from Swindon, England, active between 1977 and 2005.
