CD Reviews

After all these years, still my fave EBTG album...
Eric McCalla | Denver, COLORADO | 02/13/2002

"I've been listening to Everything But the Girl's debut album from the beginning, and it doesn't get any better for them. Though their sound has changed into different and pleasing forms, I will likely always prefer this, their first and most likeable to my ears.Tracy Thorn's smoky alto voice, coupled with her plaintive style, sets the mood for the entire set. Ben Watt's arrangements and lyrics are the perfect fit for her and their talents have always well served each other.If you're looking for some retro/lounge sounds for your next social gathering, be it an all-out party or just sipping martinis, this is the album to be played. An 80s classic for the 21st century!"
There's nothing like it!

"Wanna-be dance duo EBTG's debut CD is NOTHING what you expect! This collection of well-crafted tunes range from slow lounge, nightclub jazz to breezy neo-acoustic with silky smooth vocals. Thorn and Watt are, at times, synonymous with the vocals making it quite difficult to them apart. You can picture the 50's smoky jazz bar and these two characters conservatively attired with the spacy and enigmatic-looking drummer (wire brushes in hands) with the shiny silvery curtains in the backdrop while you sit and savour this dish! I first heard EBTG on the Style Council's "Ever Changing Moods" release (2 superb cuts). If it wasn't for that, I might have never come across this gem!"
The Ultimate ETBG album...

"This was the album that started it all for me. I had read about EBTG in a magazine and I knew I had to get my hands on their album. When I finally got the cassette of this, it never left my player. I took it everywhere. This was the kind of music I wanted to hear all the time. since then I've explored Style Council's many albums, early albums from Ben Watt and everything from Brazilian Bossa Nova to Lounge music looking for the feeling that this album gave me some 20 years ago. Most people know EBTG from Driving or the big dance hit Missing, but if you haven't heard this album you don't know what ETBG is. Enjoy."
