5.0 out of 5 stars It Feels Alright!, 13 Jan 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Worldwide (Audio CD)
Everything about this CD is just right. Tracey Thorne's vocals are the best in pop music and long time partner Ben Watt writes and produces the most perfect pop album I have heard in a long time. They make the kind of music you WISH could have more airplay on radio. Just pop this CD in and forget about that station you were about to tune in.
I could not list the highlights of this CD without listing all the songs on this effort. It is just that good. This is a rare CD that you don't skip one song to get to the next. "British Summertime" is a beautiful song given just the right melancholy feel by Tracey Thorn's wonderful voice, and "One Place" is an equally pretty song of our heart's longing to stay in one place and be happy.
My personal favorite, "Politics Aside," is about leaving when things are just never going to be right. These songs are all given just the right arrangements and we are always brought back around to feeling good after listening to this terrific CD. Maybe that is why Watt put a short 54 second duet called "Feel Alright" at the end. It has a tropical slant and leaves us feeling exactly that way, Alright........

5.0 out of 5 stars The best they ever did, 22 Nov 2005
This review is from: Worldwide (Audio CD)
There can be no doubt that this album was the best that Benn and Tracey produced. The music transcends anything they produced later. It was all done before what could be labelled their 'materialistic period' but it's a sad indictment on Britons that they ever had to produce the later stuff to become successful. Their best music was this and Idlewild without any doubt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated classic acoustic pop, 27 Jan 2012

This review is from: Worldwide (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful slice of acoustic pop.Some great songs, tasty,understated arrangements and Tracy Thorn's wistful vocals all amount to the sort of album that can be played over and over without any diminution of enjoyment. O.K, if you are looking for high octane pumped grooves or monster sing-along choruses then you'd better give this set a very wide birth. But if you enjoy melodic,intimate and rather homely pop,'Worldwide' is definitely to be recommended.It's the sort of album that gives life a little more cheer and sunshine,which given the times we live in, can be no bad thing.Songs like 'Old Friends', 'You Lift Me Up' and 'One Place' are incontrovertibly beautifully crafted and performed songs that deserve a wider audience.So be bold,give 'Worldwide' a try, I have a feeling you won't be sorry!

This review is from: Worldwide (Audio CD)
I've had a bit of a EBTG revival recently, adding a number of CDs to my collection and this stands out as a bit of a favourite.

Personally, I think Tracey Thorn's voice is nigh on unmatchable and, although the 'expert' review disagrees, I think it's rarely shown off to better effect than on tracks like Old Friends (almost acapella), Love Is Strange (where is blends with Ben's especially well) and One Place, which is a particularly heartfelt song, I feel.

If you like a great singing voice and haven't discovered EBTG, this is a fine place to start, although it's fair to say there's not a lot to dance to on it.

If you play it at a party, leave it until near the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!, 25 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Worldwide (Audio CD)
If you only buy one Everything But The Girl album, this is the one to buy.

It's very rare to find an album where every track is a winner, it's that good!
The production on this album is also first class, it's the reason expensive sound systems exist.
