Apple Venus Volume 1 is the 13th studio album by the English rock band XTC, released in February 1999. It was the first on the band's own Idea Records label through Cooking Vinyl and distributed in the United States by TVT Records. The album relies heavily on strings, acoustic guitars and keyboards, expanding upon the more orchestral approach developed on the group's previous LP Nonsuch (1992).

en référence à Apple Venus Volume 1, LP, Album, RE, 200, APELP118. An incredible album gets a timely vinyl reissue. It’s a great pressing. clear, quiet pressing with beautiful separation. Top 10 album in any list, a masterpiece, and easily one of the best XTC albums. My copy is a great sounding, cristal clear, dead silent one, and sounds way better than the original CD.

Apple Venus 1 may be XTC at it's very pinnacle of pop innovation, while 2 could be considered a return to their roots. Both are truly something special. A fitting way to wrap up an illustrious career. This album took some serious getting used to. It's a mix of pleasure and pain. Easter Theatre", "I Can't Own Her", and "River of Orchids" may very well be some of the finest songs XTC has ever released, while "Frivolous Tonight", "Your Dictionary", and "Fruit Nut" are among their worst

Apple Venus Volume 1 is the thirteenth studio album by the English band XTC, released in 1999. It reached in the UK. As with the two previous albums, the album's title appears to have been taken from the lyrics of a song on the previous album, in this case "Then She Appeared" from Nonsuch: Then she appeared Apple Venus on a half open shell. Apple Venus Volume 1 was the last XTC album to include Dave Gregory as a member of the band. He departed the band during the recording sessions. UK CD: COOKCD 172. 3 Personnel. Additional musicians.

Seven years is a long time between records, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Apple Venus is a significant step forward from Nonsuch, but the sparse strings and circular arrangements of "River of Orchids" nevertheless come as a shock, especially since its slow build-up feels as ominous and intellectual as 20th century classical music. It provides the keynote for the album, setting the stage for an ambitious, unpredictable, and strangely beautiful record

Lead t Dave Gregory didn't like that idea at all and left during the recording sessions of the album, to dismay of the fans, and leaving vocalist/guitarist Andy Partridge to arrange the string sections of the first disc. Since Gregory's influence on XTC's sound thus far had been huge, the question was whether or not the other two members of the band could pull it off on their own. The answer is a loud YES. While the first part of the Apple Venus project might not be XTC's best, it comes close

XTC’s 1999 album, Apple Venus Volume 1, announces itself with a literal splash: Opening track River Of Orchids begins with the amplified sound of water dripping in what sounds like a subterranean cavern. A low, plucked string tone responds; then, another droplet splashes to introduce a higher, singular plucked note. As River Of Orchids progresses, the song adds layers on instruments like a stone gathering moss.
