    Primus should just make a whole XTC tribute album already.

    Despite Primus being beyond awesome, I can't really get the feel of this cover. Original has my preference.

    became XTC fan thanks to this. No words to thank you, Les Claypool! <3 (must say that Nigel is not my favourite XTC song, though)

    Love both versions, although I admit I heard the Primus version first.

    This is actually one of my favorite cover songs. I like the darker overtone of this one. Gives it a better effect.

    Not bad, but I think the original is better.

    Love this song!! I think the vocals are not too brilliant on this cover but the instrumentas are brilliant. its just basically time and a half with claypools amazing bass. great song, love the original but am so happy that Primus have done it as a cover!!! x

    Despite the greatness of Primus this doesn't quite work. Great XTC song though.
