Once Chambers left, the group completely changed their style, with the dreamy, pastoral folk-rock of ''Mummer'' serving as arguable NewSoundAlbum. From that point on XTC became a full-blown PsychedelicRock band, taking production cues from Music/TheBeatles (and Music/TheBeachBoys), jangly guitars from Music/TheByrds and idiosyncratic, humorous lyrics critical of society from TheKinks. Soon afterwards, XTC recorded the album commonly regarded as their masterpiece, ''Skylarking''. Besides critical accolades, ''Skylarking'' managed to gain them a controversial hit single as well, the Beatlesque rock of "Dear God", where Partridge basically embarked on a long NayTheist SmiteMeOMightySmiter rant, railing against [[GodIsEvil God's horrendous, callous treatment of humanity]]. God was so incensed by Mr. Partridge's display of testicular virility that he personally purchased 250,000 copies of ''Skylarking''.

* UpdatedRerelease: The band's CD issues added B-sides from the singles released from each album to the running order as bonus tracks. The early versions took the unusual step of putting them right in the middle of the track listing rather then appending them to the end.
