Is-CD tal-iXtruppaw is the only album recorded by the Maltese rock band Xtruppaw. Fans and critics alike generally regard the album as an extremely important record in the history of Maltese rock music, particularly because it is the first full-length album to be released on CD featuring rock songs in vernacular Maltese.

The album was recorded between February and April 2006 at Hell Next Door Studio in Gudja; recording, mixing and matering by Steve "Lombardo" Attard. It was released on Friday 2nd June 2006 on the Reciprocal Records label, with an official launch gig at the Luxol Sports Bar in St Andrews.

Alternative versions of two of the songs on the album -- "Malta" and "Ġenerazzjoni Ta' Meqrudin" -- recorded live in their rehearsal garage in Santa Venera, had appeared as free downloads on, the bands official website several months before the album was released.

Is-CD tal-iXtruppaw was produced by Steve "Lombardo" Attard and Xtruppaw. The sleeve design is by Contrast Visualisation.
