Idlewild by Everything But the Girl
Released: Feb 1988
Label: WM Uk
While the electro drumbeats don't exactly mesh with the pastoral acoustic music, this is widely viewed as the finest early EBTG album. The very English songs, which celebrate life's small pleasures and sharper pains, are perfectly matched by Tracey Thorn's nuanced vocals. The American edition adds their European hit, "I Don't Want to Talk About It."
