We gave it an B-

Andy Partridge, the adenoidal auteur of off-kilter popsters XTC, once tempered herk and jerk with such grand melodies and shimmering production that he qualified as the Paul McCartney of postpunk. But the band’s last album was six years ago, and the interim flood of lesser outtakes collections is threatening to wash away its legacy. Fuzzy Warbles Collector’s Album gathers nine discs of unfocused solo demos, and drives home Partridge’s need for an editor…or a curator…or medication for ADD.
