Remixed in both stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound by Steven Wilson

A virtual boxed set on a single Blu-Ray disc. Also includes CD with four additional tracks from the sessions, three previously unreleased. Skylarking is the fourth in a series of remixed and expanded XTC albums. For many music fans, the band's Todd Rundgren produced eighth album is "the" classic XTC album, and therefore the one for which there has been the most demand for a 5.1 surround mix. The album has been remixed in both new stereo and 5.1 surround sound by Steven Wilson with input from Andy Partridge, and is fully approved by XTC.

This is one of pop's finest albums, produced by one of pop's best producers and performed by one of pop's greatest groups at their most popular.
