Being both an ebtg and back to mine series fan for years, I have been stunned by this. I have played it to death both at home and in the car and am still finding new things in each listen. Ben and Tracey have managed to combine cool, chill and occasionally a dash of melancholy yet somehow always provoking a smile.
It is the perfect soundtrack to the current heatwave (together with a long cool beer whilst watching the sun go down)
I know this will be a long term favourite - quite extraordinary.

In my opinion this ranks up there with MJ Cole, Groove Armada and Faithless as one of the best albums in the Back to Mine series.
This is a brilliantly conceived album and superbly showcases the musical inspirations behind a very influential musical duo. The mix has all the right ingredients for a chill out album from the beautiful intro courtesy of DJ Cam right through to the end of the CD with Someday We'll All Be Free from Donny Hathaway. In between we have great tracks from Carl Craig, Model 500, The Roots and Dubtribe Sound System. The stand out track for me however is the haunting vocals provided by Beth Orton laid ontop of an EBTG inspired beat - brilliant!!!
As I've said this is one of the best in the Back to Mine series, a pure classic of album which will never date or be out of your CD player - I promise.

I was absolutely blown away by this album. It is a truly remarkable album which blends seamlessly hip-hop, funk and a bit of everything in between. Definite stand-outs (which is hard on an album filled from start to finish with brilliant tunes) are Slick Rick with his beautiful mix of hip-hop and storytelling, and the wonderul haunting voice of Beth Orton.
Buy this album, it's a great addition to anyone's collection. Truly outstanding

Having all of them, I can honestly say that this is the best one yet. It's got hip hop, house, more hip hop, funk, and dreamy electronic ambient that make this album amazing. There are some lowpoints with the Beth Orton, and the Margaret O'Hara track. These songs are slow and a little depressing. They take away from the satisfying, head moving, music that makes up the rest of the album.
What really makes this album complete is that it doesn't branch out too far. It doesn't have the tracks with Gosphel or classical that other Back to Mine albums have thrown in.
EBTG have chosen some sweet tracks and give an explanation of each and the songs place in their lives. A nice personal touch.

I listened to this CD for about 3 days and nothing else. It's very easy to listen to. A diverse collection, heavy hip-hop beats, house and old skool soul seemlessly (and i mean seemlessly) mixed. The result is a varying tracklist but with a continual soulfulness that's woven in, something that fans of EBTG's acoutic work will still appreciate.
Standouts for me are Slick Rick (hip-hop with a story), Model 500 (damn thats a funky B-line) and Donny Hathaway.
You wont be dissappointed.

I own every masterpiece by EBTG and I like them very much. They have changed their style since the beginning and I don't mind it at all. Actually I like the "dance" side of their production. And this Back to mine very well concentrate their taste for soul/dance/funky and "black" music. I would strongly advise anyone to own a copy of this Back to Mine.

Bought this a few years back, listened to it all the time in the car as it never left the changer. In all that time I never bored of it. Its a selection of tunes selected by the EBTG duo, none of them our theirs so don't expect an EBTG sound. It's surprisingly good anyway with some interesting tune selections.

This album tells a story of sorts. The sad tune of all alone tells the story of how a one night stand ruined a girls life. All her dreams dashed by becoming a single mum. If only the lassies & lads of today listened to this tune, maybe Britain might not have such a high number of single mums.
All I can suggest you try & listen to this somewhere before buying. (Streaming site or something)

Even if you don't, you won't regret the buy.

The other two ratings here concern the LP Cover being in bad condition & score the album on that & not the tunes. My album is all CD & has never skipped a beat so I'm just trying to even the stars out a wee bit! Its only fair & this CD justifies it anyway.

I can highly recommend this album along with others from "Back to mine" series. (Groove Armada is one)

The latest in the 'Back To Mine' series sees Everything But the Girls' Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt choose a range of soft, late-night tracks that have helped shape them into the band that they are.
The tracks on the album have a very diverse range from a few dub-classics, to the café house beat to the soulful. It is a very good and appropriate mix that seems to fit the EBTG bill. Ben Watt mixes the CD and with such difficult tunes he does a good job to keep the transactions to a minimum. The selection that Tracey and Ben have chosen seem to be very appropriate for the current time -a nineties sound with an eighties/soulful touch. There are some good moments on the CD and some real times where you can actually picture the two of them sitting down listening to these tunes and selecting them for the final album, however there are a couple of lowlights where the CD becomes a little tedious. Beth Orton's contribution is one such case where her great range is wasted and the song sounds very flat and monotonic. However such times are more then made up for and for the EBTG fan this will prove a very intriguing sneak in on their musical background and tastes. A good compilation that will help you while away an hour or so through the eyes and vibe of Tracey and Ben.
