MBV don't work as individual tracks from "Loveless" to my ears. Sometimes I'm convinced they don't work eveh within that format.

A but only because there is a somewhat stilted and less than pleasant attempt to actually write a song. I suspect.

MBV are so Emperor's New Clothes for me. There is actually bugger all there.

I LIKE A. It rattles along nicely.

A Great XTC song from a great album, its hard to vote against MBV as Loveless is one my favorite albums too.

MBV is in my DNA but I quite liked the post-Byrdsian jangle of XTC too.
