In Brief

*** Everything but the Girl, "Walking Wounded," Atlantic.

June 23, 1996|Sara Scribner

Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt create a sultry, sensuous, jazz-inflected soundtrack for a broken, codependent heart. Thorn's lovely voice will make you want to wallow in her pain: She's all crumbling longing and crushing desire throughout. Watt's evocative, textured, high-tech terrain winds effortlessly around Latin-flavored cushions and dance-pop grooves. A single-minded but voluptuous album.
