Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 7/01, p.139
4 stars out of 5 - "...Colin Moulding had gone totally agrarian with the loamy single 'Senses Working Overtime' and a chalk horse on the cover....XTC were a motherlode of rampant imagination..."
CMJ - 1/5/04, p.10
Ranked #4 in CMJ's "Top 20 Most-Played Albums of 1982".
NME (Magazine) - 5/8/99, p.38
"...a frighteningly ambitious attempt to create a new English music; a polyglot fusion of folk music, psychedelic rock and reggae....homespun, provincial pop theory in practice..."

Any doubt's about XTC's abilities and directions following their permanent withdrawal from live performance after the release of BLACK SEA were cast aside when this album appeared in 1982. Originally released as a double album (and subsequently formatted onto a single CD), it marked the dawning of their more pastoral phase. However, far from setting aside their rocking grooves, they now came wrapped in a softer blanket, of more intricate arrangements. "Senses Working Overtime" garnered them some airplay in the states, which brought in new fans who were treated to a wonderful range of songs which all featured a judicious mix of electric and acoustic instruments. ENGLISH SETTLEMENT is the band's second homerun in a row.
