Love and Its Opposite

Love and Its Opposite by Tracey Thorn
Released: May 2010
Label: Merge Records
At 47, Tracey Thorn has cut a sublime midlife crisis album. "Oh, the Divorces" features Thorn's biting, novelistic impressions of her friends' lives, while the narrator on "Why Does the Wind?" wonders if she's also headed for a breakup. The mother on "Hormones" sees herself shrinking next to her blossoming daughter -- is she also the one sneaking off to the "Singles Bar"? Thorn's strongest numbers are haunted by the past; "Kentish Town" is bleak enough to reconcile the most hateful exes. But this is strictly art: Thorn still shares a life with Everything but the Girl bandmate Ben Watt.
