Walking Wounded by Everything But the Girl
Released: May 1996
Label: Rhino Atlantic
In 1996, after a decade spent crafting spare, sparkling, largely acoustic pop, Everything But the Girl (romantic partners Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn) plugged into dance music in earnest. Their style of melancholic pop remained unchanged, but this time, Thorn's remarkable voice was enfolded by fluttering drum-and-bass rhythms and pneumatic house beats; acoustic guitars took a backseat to synthesizers, but their sound was as limpid and lush as ever. Years later, the album remains an uncommonly copasetic marriage of club grooves and pop expressiveness.
