It’s hard to overstate just how radical the first Everything but the Girl album sounded when it was released in 1984. The British indie scene was then dominated by spiky and squirrelly bits of post-punk. Young musicians were looking to undermine the stereotypes of '60s and '70s rock 'n' roll, but nothing was as quietly audacious as Eden. While other bands were looking to reggae and funk, Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt embraced music that was largely ignored (if not altogether reviled) by the rest of their generation. In an understand and elegant fashion, Eden weaves strands of cocktail jazz and bossa nova, taking discarded forms of “easy listening” and refilling them with wit and soul. They carried themselves with a rare aura of self-respect, and the clean and naked tone of their music made them seem wise beyond their years (college sweethearts, Watt and Thorn were only 21 at the time of this recording). Among the standouts are “Each and Everyone,” “Bittersweet,” and “Even So.” Produced by Robin Millar, who'd very quickly find success helming a similar sound for Sade, Eden ignored prevailing trends and instead created its own form of soul music.
