Record Store Day 2014 Release. 30th Anniversary 180 Gram Clear Vinyl Gatefold Edition and Numbered. The inner bag features printed lyrics, sheet music and photography. Everything but the Girl hit the ground running with their first album, ‘Eden’; in some ways, they wouldn’t equal the effort again for years. Though both Tracy Thorn and Ben Watt learned how to use their voices to better effect over the years, their vocal talents are evident here. Singing over a gentle, tropical-toned combo, Thorn sounds strong and free, and, when the occasion calls for it, vulnerable. Watt may be a little melodramatic on ‘Tender Blue’, but the affecting ‘Soft Touch’ more than makes up for it. Meanwhile, ‘Another Bridge’ presages ‘Me and Bobby D’ (from The Language of Life); ‘The Dustbowl’ succinctly captures a post-break-up reflection with only a modicum of regret; ‘Frost and Fire’ reaches out from daughter to mother; and ‘I Must Confess’ neatly sambas its way out of a finished relationship. Mature, intelligent, and unflinchingly romantic, it ranks among Everything but the Girl’s best work.
