Mummer, the first album to follow Andy Partridge's mental breakdown, which led to XTC's retirement from touring, is very much the work of an eccentric in isolation. The album is a collection that builds on the groundwork of English Settlement with gentle, acoustic songs that evoke pastoral images and peaceful times.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The whole album is more than solid, but the first eight songs can hang with most of XTC's best material. Despite what I've been reading though, I quite enjoy Frost Circus. Wonderland and Love On A Farmboy's Wages are sheer brilliance.
