Wonderful

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some albums you can listen to for a week or two.@A good album can sound fresh for maybe a year, but I`ve been regularly listening to this for the last 17 years. And it still impresses me. So obviously anyone who likes the earlier Everything But the Girl and particularly those who always found Ben Watt a bit irritating should be interested. If you are a real fan you should also check out Tracy`s earlier still incarnation as one of the Marine Girls where you will find some sweet and youthful songs, but nothing quite as splendid as Distant Shore"
Tracy before the Girl

"As one who can appriciate Everything but the Girl pre-Todd Terry mix of "missing," this is a very enjoyable album. As EBTG moves to the icon status of this wonderful female voice behind Ben Watt's beats--constantly challenging the adult-contemporary audience, inspiring the dance/electronic world, as well as my girlfriend's father's (a man in his 50s) ears--it's nice to remember where they came from. Tracy and her guitar, a few vocal layers in the mixing--that's it. this album is beautiful in it's simplicity. Highpoints to enjoy while you relax or immerse in melancholia, is "new opened eyes" and her cover of lou reed's "femme fatale." you'll get this album if you love her mysterious vocals--a bit unrefined, lacking confidence, but wonderful."
Amazing

"OK, so I've read hundreds of reviews on hundreds of albums and many times thought about writing my own. Having heard many Everything But The Girl albums, I wasn't really expecting anything remakable about Tracey Thorn's solo debut, especially since it was just her and her guitar and I'm not a big fan of albums like this. But about 30 seconds into Small Town Girl I found myself being totally blown away and the album just kept getting better and better. I am a huge fan of just about every kind of music out there and I honestly have to say that of the 1,000 plus albums that I own, I find myself coming back to A Distant Shore over and over again. Never before have I heard a more beautiful marriage of voice and guitar. This is truly one of the most amazing albums I have ever heard. My only complaint is at just under 23 minutes, the album is way too short. Do yourself a favor and buy this album."
