I could happily listen to Tracey Thorn sing my shopping list all day, so this review was always going to be rather biased, but let me try and explain/justify that.
There are wonderful singers in every genre and age (e.g. Ella, Dusty, Joni; the fact that their first names suffice speaks volumes), but TT is my favourite pop singer ever. She may well not be technically the most gifted (The amazon review says she's impossibly flat, but I can't hear that!), but she has this brilliantly easy languid way of evoking loss and desire that I find irresisible. I particularly like this album because I think Tracey's voice is as good as it is on any EBTG release, and also bcause the instrumentation supports the song and then gets out the way of that voice.
My personal all-time favourite album by this pair is "Love Not Money" which has a very different jazz/folk feel, but I rate this pretty highly too.
