HASH(0x9b811228) étoiles sur 5 I can't complain, but I will 14 août 2000

As great as this Best Of is, and it IS great, if you are really interested in hearing ALL the best stuff, you owe it to yourself to pick up the Fossil Fuel 2CD set via import. It has every song present here, plus more that are quite indispensable. I did buy this CD, and loved it. Then I heard people talking about the import 2CD version, and decided to lay down the sheckles for it. What I found was perfection! There are SO many songs as good as or better than what is present on Upsy Daisy. So measure your desire to hear all the best that XTC has to offer, and don't be surprised if you buy this and end up trading up to the superior Fossil Fuel 2CD set!

HASH(0x9b811210) étoiles sur 5 Beginner's Primer to XTC 2 avril 2003
Par Laura G. Carter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've come to XTC late, but, since being turned onto them a couple of months ago, I can say I'm not only hooked, I'm obsessed. As a result, I've been buying up every CD they've ever made, including this one, "Upsy Daisy Assortment." So far, in all my purchases, I have yet to be disappointed.
"Upsy" is a perfect CD for the beginning XTC lover. It takes the listener over the pop "transistor" hits ("Making Plans For Nigel", the scaled-down version of "Respectible Street" - for its original lyrics, see their album "Black Sea"), then introduces the ear to some of their more Beatle-esque works, which are equally brilliant ("Love On A Farmboy's Wages", "Grass"). In between are the controversial ("Dear God"), the flat-out rockers ("No Thugs In Our House") the sad and dreamy, exquisitely-crafted ballads ("This World Over") and the just plain "I've-Never-Heard-Anything-Like-This-Before" ("Seagulls Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her").
If you like this CD - and I can't see how you could fail to, particularly if you're as sick of what passes for well-crafted pop music these days as I am - move along to "Drums and Wires" and "Black Sea". And - of course - "English Settlement". Once you've gotten those under your belt, go exploring through the group's new boxed set, "Coat of Many Cupboards", which features 40+ alternate, rejected and rehersal versions of a broad spectrum of this band's musical legacy.
The world needs more XTC.

HASH(0x9b80d4f8) étoiles sur 5 A little is not enough 4 août 2005
Par Tim Brough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is one of two strong compilations of XTC, although I had to get it used on Amazon. Geffen has apparently lost the rights to the XTC catalog (and it has trickled out on Caroline), so this great collection is likely going to drift into oblivion. Get it now, because more so than the recently reissued "The Compact XTC," "Upsy Daisy Assortment" delivers XTC's maturation into a first class melodic pop band.

"UDA" bypasses the first two arty albums to focus on XTC's first major statement, the biting but catchy "Drums and Wires" album. The rough edges had been smoothed over to allow for the wittier songs to subversively insinuate themselves, like the brilliant tale of "Making Plans For Nigel." In a distinctly British scenario, our lad Nigel is a boy who "likes to speak and he loves to be spoken to." It laid the groundwork for such delightful political rants like "Generals and Majors" (which would have been a hit if American radio hadn't been terrified of new wave and the RSO original release of "Black Sea" hadn't been still-born by the record company's collapse). After all, the Beach Boys 'oo wee oo' of "Respectable Street" permits a goofy litany of suburban snootiness to skim by and a line like "Saturday I saw him retching over our fence" to breeze through like a perfect pop moment should.

Shortly afterwards, Andy Partridge's disdain for and strain from touring left him physically exhausted, so he abandoned the road to work on music and start a family. The album that preceded the stoppage shows that perhaps he was feeling tired of the pop rat race, as "English Settlement" held psychedelic overtones and a more rustic feel. The hit UK single "Sense Working Overtime" sums that train of thought up best, but the anti-racist "No Thugs In Our House" still packs serious wallop. By "Mummer," though, that bite began to taste bitter, and "Funk Pop a Roll" snarls at what must have been their early distaste for Geffen records ("big money selling you stuff that you really do not need"). Just the same, "Love On a Farmboy's Wages" could easily be the most beautiful song the band ever recorded.

The following record. "The Big Express," finds the band floundering to maintain a sound; "The World Over" was probably the best song on it. It took Todd Rundgren to come in (and the trippy Dukes of Stratosphere side project) to make the band deliver a rejuvenated album. "Skylarking" was easily the most coherent disc in the XTC library. Rundgren's Beatlesque production flourishes and musical linking of songs into mini-suite arrangements brought XTC to a brand new audience, and the bitter anti-hymn "Dear God" got them headlines. But the delightful double-meaning of "Grass" and the production scope of "Earn Enough For Us" also allowed the band to expand on their huge field of ideas. This all finally paid off when the first single from "Oranges and Lemons" became XTC's first major American hit and the album became a success. "The Mayor Of Simpleton" tossed of buoyant hooks with an easy to swallow story lyric, as did "King For A Day." The final gasp of XTC's decade, "Nonsuch," found them fighting with their label (who originally declined the album) and was another modest success. "The Disappointed" is a wistful look at fading loves, as dreamy as "Chalkhills and Children's" nostalgia.

It is at this point that XTC basically went on strike, not releasing any new music till 2000's "Apple Venus." I really can't give "UDA" the five stars I might have because of omissions like "Wonderland," "This Is Pop" or "Sgt Rock." As such, it is still a wonderful tasty assortment of candied goodies. Get it while there's still stock.

HASH(0x9b80d540) étoiles sur 5 Fair Compilation 7 juillet 2006
Par WillieB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
XTC's music is full of great writing, arranging, playing, witty lyrics, and pristine production. Pop music with an attitude. This "sweetest hits" collection, drawing from eight studio releases between 1979 and 1992, would be a good introduction if you don't want to buy (my opinion) their essential studio albums ("White Music", "English Settlement", "Skylarking", "Oranges and Lemons"). The issues I have with this release is there is not one song represented from their first two releases, and like any fan, the songs selected are not exactly what I would pick.

Previous reviewers have pointed out, the lyrics to "Respectable Street" on this disc are altered. The words changed were... abortion to absorption, contraception to child perfection?, and sex position to proposition. If these words are so offensive, another tune should have been selected so the artist's lyrics stay intact. Why butcher the artist's vision? It's puzzling that the bold lyrics of "Dear God" were not changed, but the lyrics above were. Nevertheless, this is a fair compilation from an awesome band.

Par MPS - Publié sur Amazon.com

Boy oh boy, can't you feel the anticipation for the next XTC tour...since we've all been waiting -years- for the label dispute to be over. Until then, pick up Upsy-Daisy, because it's an honestly Best Of album.
Plus, the recordings are really good-clean and scratch free. The levels are all even too, making the bass and treble balance perfect (essential in songs like Seagulls Screaming...).
It's a shame that XTC got a bit of blacklisting from people misunderstanding their USA wide-release of Dear God-some people don't really think about lyrics anymore. They are a fantastic pop/rock band, bubblegum that actually sticks, guilt-free listening on every track. Again, another album that rewards you for actually thinking about life. And then it rewards you for just having fun.
