  • On Everything But the Girl's 1984 self-titled debut, the British duo of Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn offers up a seemingly light, breezy set of jazz-inflected pop tunes that makes no qualms about evoking the bossa nova boom of the '60s. What makes these songs stand out from other acts in the lounge set, however, are Thorn's nuanced vocals and Watt's literate, melancholy lyrics and smart, subtle arrangements. The lilting single "Each and Every One" proved to be a hit in EBTG's native U.K. (where this album was released, with a somewhat different track list, as EDEN), while other tracks, including the dreamy, droning "Frost and Fire" and the slightly New Wave-ish "Never Could Have Been Worse," opted for mood over melody. Although Watt and Thorn would have to wait until the mid-'90s for their U.S. breakthrough (the surging dance remix of "Missing"), this record firmly establishes the core of the EBTG sound, allowing for the fascinating stylistic experimentation on subsequent releases.
