I've been trying to get into them properly for ages, though I've always loved Drums and Wires and a few songs from the later albums.

AdvertBreak's been trying to get me to play Apple Venus in full for years now, maybe it's about time.

The Big Express is pretty much almost perfect, I certainly prefer to Skylarking and Drums & Wires. Seagulls Screaming Kiss Her and Train Running Low are also in my top 10 XTC songs. As for people being "rather amused" by it, nah... the press ignored it and XTC fans ate it up. Business as usual in those days.

There was a time years ago when I got into Drums & Wires, English Settlement and Skylarking, all of which are very good albums, especially Skylarking.
