An 80s pop treasure – and a real bright spot in a mainstream world that often had plenty of clunky moments! The album represents a great step forward for the duo of Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn – as Watt's arrangements are even fuller and more focused than before – still lots of jazz in the mix, but on a larger scale that's really great – almost pushing them into a classic old school style – with a blend of orchestrations and vocals that's perfect for both the songwriting and Tracey Thorn's vocals! Titles include "Come On Home", "A Country Mile", "Careless", "Sugar Finney", "Come Hell Or High Water", "Fighting Talk", and "Little Hitler". 2CD version features an amazing package – plus b-sides that include "Draining The Bar", "I Fall To Pieces", "Come On Home (acoustic)", "Alfie", and "Almost Blue" – plus demos of "Come On Home", "Careless", "Little Hitler", and "Cross My Heart".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
