It's nice to see so many XTC afficionados here. What an incredibly under-rated band.

How about 'Chalkhills and Children'?

incredibly under-rated, yes!
'chalkhills and children' is a great song.
it's difficult to think of any xtc-song I get bored listening to...

Yes XTC is in my top 5, they have always seemed to have Beatles/Beach Boys thing going on and have been definitely under rated throughout their career, including Apple Venus and Wasp Star. Also Andy's underlying guitar work is genius in its appropriateness and simplicity.

in my opinion, the beach boys influence came in at a later stage (around 'oranges and lemons' and the 'dukes of stratosphear'-albums). the influence from the beatles was always there, of course.
I can hear a lot of ray davies (the kinks) in xtc. even some syd barrett-era pink floyd. and, some zappa, too, here and there.
and, sure, andy partridge was the sole guitar player on 'apple venus' and 'wasp star.' but, don't forget dave gregory, xtc's very accomplished guitar/keyboard player (and arranger of strings and such), who was with them from the 'drums and wires'-album all the way up to 'nonsuch.'

oh, absolutely not.

and, what about 'roads girdle the globe' and 'no language in our lungs'.
and, 'books are burning'.

and, some more by colin moulding; 'grass'... and 'the smartest monkeys'.

this could go on for a long time...

but, maybe it shouldn't...

To pitch my two cents in about XTC, I always liked Peter Pumpkinhead quite a lot.

I always really dug "Brand New Cadillac" on the Clash's London Calling. Just a simple little rockabilly cover but it really kicks.

And while I'm on a punkabilly kick I'll also mention the Reverend Horton Heat's "Big Red Rocket of Love".

You are absolutely correct on all these points Lumpy another thing worth mentioning about XTC is they have several albums that follow the "Concept Album" format, Nonsuch being one but others would include Skylarking, Dukes, Oranges & Lemons, and English Settlement.

Do either of you happen to know if "Fuzzy Warbles" is worth the (considerable) investment?

well, I wouldn't know. never bothered to find out. I have a feeling it's for completists only. but, then again, I might be wrong.
