5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet songs for a peaceful moment, 17 Mar 2004
This review is from: A Distant Shore (Audio CD)
This is a great album, pre-EBTG but with the romantic tone that would later show up on many EBTG songs. Femme fatale & Too Happy are musts.

This review is from: A Distant Shore (Audio CD)
I was given a casstte of this album when I was at Hull univeristy and literally wore through the tape listening to it. The straigtfoward production leaves the simple melodies and bitter sweet, philosophical lyrics to become totally mesmerising.

Tracy Thorn and the Marine girl belongs each together. Just this album in the same era of the Marine Girls. So Tracy Thorn can be referred to the same review given for the CD "Marine Girls - Beach Party & Lazy Ways" completely. I recognize her vocal as the group "Everything but the girl" which I like it too

5.0 out of 5 stars These Early Days, 21 Jun 2014

This review is from: A Distant Shore (Audio CD)
Tracey Thorn's classic first album that for me started a decades long love of her craft. Not the greatest production job of all time but the Thorn voice is already there, commanding, comforting and unique this album still sounds great all these years later. Read her book Bedsit Disco Queen whilst listening to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning, 23 April 2014

This review is from: A Distant Shore (Audio CD)
Like others, I first owned this on this vinyl, before snapping up the CD. The only criticism I can think of is to say it's a tiny bit short and leaves you hankering for one or two more tracks. I guess it is of it's time, in that it marks a pivotal point in Tracey's musical development but having said that, there's not a lot to date it either. Confident, beautifully executed in it's simplicity and sometimes haunting in how deeply personal the tracks still sound. The stripped back nature of The Marine Girls meets Early EBTG. A huge personal favourite and not a bad balance to Ben Watt's silo album North Marine shore from the same period.
