Wasp Star (Apple Venus Volume 2) is the 14th studio album by the English rock band XTC, released on Cooking Vinyl/Idea Records on 23 May 2000. It is the follow-up to 1999's Apple Venus Volume 1 and contains rock-based material largely written between 1994 and 1996. Wasp Star reached number 40 on the UK Albums Chart. In 2002, the group released an instrumental version of the album entitled Waspstrumental. XTC dissolved in 2006, leaving Wasp Star their last studio album to date.

Apple Venus Volume 1 was originally supposed to be a double album, but Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding were persuaded to divide it into two releases, with the orchestral material on Apple Venus Volume 1 and the other songs on Wasp Star. By this stage, guitarist and singer Andy Partridge and bassist and singer Colin Moulding were the only two band members left. Homegrown is a demo album by XTC, released a year after its parent album Wasp Star (Apple Venus Volume 2) on Idea Records and TVT Records. It was reissued in 2005 as part of the Apple Box. Nick Davis (record producer).

Anyone expecting Wasp Star: Apple Venus, Vol. 2 to continue the majestic acoustic-orchestral blends of Apple Venus will be disappointed, because it's a straightforward collection of sharp, witty, well-constructed pop songs. Directness is perhaps the oddest thing about Wasp Star - it's unassuming pop from a band that operated on a conceptual plain for nearly 20 years. It could be argued that all the songs that fit a dark, introspective mood went to Apple Venus, XTC's first album after seven years in exile, while Wasp Star wound up as a clearinghouse for everything else

It is the second volume of the Apple Venus set and reached the UK Top 40 albums chart. At this point, guitarist and singer Andy Partridge and bassist and singer Colin Moulding were the only two band members left. The duo therefore utilised session musicians on every track to fill in the musical elements that they were incapable of performing themselves. Retrieved 16 June 2011.
