4.0 out of 5 stars A great one for people who enjoy well crafted songs, sung beautifully, 23 Dec. 2010
By 
This review is from: Out Of The Woods (Audio CD)
There's a two star review on here that decries the repetitiveness of the dance beat of many of the tracks on here, which seems a bit churlish if a) you've ever listened to any of EBTG's later material and b) listened to more than half the tracks on this CD.

I bought this after digging out my EBTG CDs to play in the car. I've got Walking Wounded, which is very dance orientated and The Best of EBTG which features a great cross section of their stuff from the early Folk-like songs (including a couple where Ben sings!) through their later dance stuff.

This CD seems to span the styles well, with Tracey's wistful voice on tracks like Here It Comes again, Hands Up to the Ceiling, Nowhere Near and Easy, regardless of whether there's a drum machine in the background or not.

If you like EBTG's span of material, you'll love this album (the later Love and its Opposite is more of challenge, although I think it's great too). If you like well written songs sung beautifully (she must have one of the very best pop voices of the last 30 years and she seems to use more of her range on this CD than on some later EBTG material) this is a CD you should own too.

Ignore the 'Bedroom Disco' comments, this is far more than that and is a great intro to Tracey's lovely voice and clever songwriting or a great addition to your collection if, like me, you look back over a multi decade music collection and see EBTG as a highlight.

Perhaps not (as someone said) the best CD you can buy this year, but one you should IMO.
