Biography

After pausing an 18-year career with partner Ben Watt in best-selling alt-pop duo Everything But The Girl (1982–2000), followed by a self-imposed hiatus to start a family, Tracey Thorn re-emerged in 2007 to a wave of critical acclaim with the glittering autobiographical folk-disco of Out of the Woods, her first solo album since 1982’s indie classic A Distant Shore. Now she is back ... Read more in Amazon's Tracey Thorn Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Great remixes. 3 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Well worth picking up for the great DSE dub ( as played by David Mancuso at the Loft) and the deep pulsing Buttrich mix. Something for everyone. Beautiful vocals as you would expect. Great

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing folky-electronica! 27 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is just 1 single from a great album!

Tracey Thorn has one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard. I've been a massive fan of Everything But The Girl and Ben Watt's DJ work since 'Missing' in 1995 and also Massive Attack's 'Protection', and Tracey hasn't failed me with this album. Her voice does truly sound heart-broken and she puts across every song in such a genuine and touching way - so rare these days. Everything is so manufactured, but I feel Tracey has SOUL! :)

I love listening to EBTG, and now Tracey's new album, on headphones whilst travelling and stuff..... takes me to another level.

The standout tracks for me personally are It's All True, Get Around To It and Grand Canyon. So go buy the album too!

5.0 out of 5 stars SHE IS FANTASTIC! 15 Mar 2007
By Yelda
Format:Audio CD
What an album, not only for EBTG lovers. Tracey Thorn did it again! Her fantastic and unique voice is incredible. My favourites are "it's all true" and "grand canyon"... (those who loved Traceys "temperamental" will also like the song "a-z") Be careful, once you bought this cd you won't be able stop dancing! Tracey Thorn at her best.

Enyoj it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Song by EBTG's Tracey Thorn 6 Mar 2007
By Juggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anyone who loves EBTG and Deep House music will love this song and remixes. Thorn has put out the perfect first single. It is catchy, light and timeless. This song is becoming a big hit in the UK, however I don't think it will get much airplay in the US. Too bad, because it is a great song. I think if more people were exposed to it, it would become a hit. Maybe Tracey will do some TV/ Radio/ Magazine promotion in the US? I hope so!

3.0 out of 5 stars What ever happened to the basic "extended" version of songs? 10 Aug 2007
By hippiedj - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Say, here's a brilliant idea: Why not take the album version of "It's All True" and just extend it? After all, the album track is great and very catchy, so by extending it just right everyone can enjoy and dance to it longer. So, why didn't they do that for this single? The DSE dub, while using the basis of the album track, is fine but there should have been a DSE VOCAL track as well! It's so obvious.

The Escort Extended Remix is alright but sounds like a watered-down version of the song to appease the house crowd, taking away the "punch" that the original track has.

The Martin Buttrich Remix is one of those longggggg 9-minute tranced out versions (or whatever term they apply to this sound lately) that doesn't represent the core of the song well. Instead it comes off as a vanity piece for the dj behind it -- let's face it, some dj remixers could just add sounds of them blowing their nose over the song and die-hard fans of that dj would deem it brilliant simply because of his/her name and mystique. It's one thing to remix a song, but quite another to rework it so much that it doesn't really resemble the original it was from. This kind of thing works for some folks, but from my experience with clubs, mainly for those a bit altered by alchohol or some kind of drug. Sorry to sound harsh, but this release could have been so much better. There are too many songs that offer this particular remix's style that they are all starting to sound alike. Even Erasure on their current "Light At The End Of The World" singles and previous two studio albums have gone back to offering basic extended remixes in addition to alternate remixes of different styles. It works quite successfully.

By playing these tracks of "It's All True" for numerous people, all have agreed the basic album track is the best of all. It works on every level: It's upbeat, happy, danceable, and catchy. Tracey Thorn's ever-so smooth and great voice works beautifully with it. So why not do what made so many 12" versions in the 80s work so well by simply extending it? I'd have given this single at least 4 stars had the 6:44 DSE track been given the full vocal treatment instead of just a dub version. Hearing only snippets of Tracey's voice is like a cruel tease, we deserve to hear her talent with the full vocal. Here's hoping that somewhere a dj-remix service will do just that and allow fans to get ahold of that one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great song but HORRIBLE REMIXES 5 Jun 2007
By Real Disco Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Tracy Thorn and the original song is great, but the remixes are HORRIBLE. This song in the hands of a couple of great djs would have been fantastic. Don't waste your money on this and buy the album.
4.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it is all true. 7 Dec 2009

I particularly like the Martin Buttrich Remix. Has a melodic, hypnotic beat that is sublime with Tracey's ethereal vocals.
