Biography

Originating at the turn of the 1980s as a leader of the lite-jazz movement, Everything but the Girl became an unlikely success story more than a decade later, emerging at the vanguard of the fusion between pop and electronica. Founded in 1982 by Hull University students Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, the duo took their name from a sign placed in the window of a local furniture shop, which claimed ...

Brilliant. 24 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the kind of musical pleasance that represents the best of what true pop can be. Simple and catchy without ever coming close to stupid--lyrically and musically solid. This thing stayed in my Walkman for about a year straight when it came out. It's little use getting into which songs stand out, as there isn't a weak one in the bunch, but the closer, "Angel," leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. Dig in. Whatever you know about this band, they've never been better than this.

Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt are as compatible as ink and paper 2 Feb 2001
By Brian Hulett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The combination of these two highly talented people is extremely addictive. Don't say you haven't been warned! This (or any) EBTG album will leave you wanting more. I first heard Tracey Thorn's powerfully beautiful voice when she covered "The Paris Match" for The Syle Council. From the opening beats of the first track, "When All's Well", I was HOOKED forever. Every song on this album is a keeper: beautiful melodies and a jazzy acoustic sound throughout make for a guaranteed enjoyable listen that is head and shoulders above most (if not all) of the other production-line pop that dominated the era. The cover of The Pretender's hit "Kid" is not to be missed, in my opinion ten times better than the original. Don't hesitate a moment longer...pick this one up, it's a real gem. After this album has left you wanting more, I HIGHLY recommend (in no particular order): IDLEWILD (1988), BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT (1986) and THE LANGUAGE OF LIFE (1990).

Best "Political" Easy Listening Album Ever 7 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
EbtG have gone through a number of phases (bosa nova, acoustic, techno) - this album is more ballads and folk rock, but may be the best collection of melodies they've put together. To that they coupled sharp but not over-the-top social/political observations (my favorite - from "Are You Trying to Be Funny?" where a well to do man preserves his conscience by praying "may the bad things in life come in twos and not threes") - themes later covered later with less subtlety by the Housemartins. I agree with the reviewer that this reissue should have been padded with some of the bonus b-sides, but at least it has the 2 tracks that made the US release (but not the original UK). If you liked the original version of "Missing" definitely pick up on this.

Sweet dreams are made of this 11 April 2002
By Lefteris Lalos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Have you really noticed the names of the rhythm session
musicians participating on this album: drummer / vocalist
June Miles Kingston (former member of MODETTES, FUN BOY THREE, guest vocalist on JIMMY SOMMERVILLE'S cover version
of FRANCOISE HARDY'S Comment Te Dire Adieu), bass player
Phil Moxham (ex-YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS & ex-GIST member, whose
single Love At First Sight is one of British Pop music's
unique moments).EBTG's music is so ethereal, full of positive
energy & seductive harmonies you needn't worry about missing
some camouflaged political or social message.I wish, I was
once again TABULA RASA, and those two were the ones to shape
with their magic chalk the colours of my heart.

Listen to this CD on a hot summer afternoon while drinking tequila and chain smoking--it's an engulfing experience.
