4.0 out of 5 stars New forms, old ethics, 3 Feb 2004
This review is from: Temperamental (Audio CD)
New readers start here: Temperamental continues the long, slow evolution of Everything But The Girl, a band who've never been shy of exploring different styles and trends: jazz-flecked Eden, agit-pop on Love Not Money, coffee bar music with Idlewild, even big band sounds and smoooth shiny, shrink wrapped soul on Baby, The Stars Shine Bright and The Language of Life. Course it helps that Ben Watt is as talented a composer and arranger as any in the business, and the cool and lovely voice of Tracey Thorn could be singing the ingredients list on a cereal packet and you'd still want to listen. But what makes them special is they're keen observers of the human condition from blissed out lovers to drugged out club hedonism to marriages fallen apart and the restricted lives people lead because of poverty and fear. Temperamental explores new forms in rhythym and dance yet remains true to their old ethos - quite an achievement.
