Tracey Thorn:
Love And Its Opposite
(Strange Feeling) – TNT
album review

Since her earliest records with the Marine Girls almost 30 years
ago, and through her time with Everything But The Girl,
Tracey Thorn’s
wearied alto has always seemed most at home surfing melancholy melodies.

From opening track Oh, The Divorces! to a cover of Come On Home To Me
(a duet with Jens Lekman), Love And Its Opposite is full
of them.

Delicate on the surface but with a deceptively tough core, it’s an impressive set.
