[Edit]

Everything but the Girl’s second album occupies a unique territory, somewhere between the shimmering melancholia of The Smiths and the chic Brazilian-tinged jazz of Sade (whose collaborator and producer, Robin Millar, oversaw Love Not Money). Between the overcast Ronettes drumbeat of “Heaven Help Me,” the jingly rockabilly of “Anytown,” and the shiny Motown pop of “When All’s Well,” this sophomore effort comes off as a springier, more strident affair than its hushed predecessor, 1984’s gorgeous Eden. EBTG couldn't match Morrissey for star power or flamboyant wit, but they could certainly compete with The Smiths when it came to writing pop songs as lean as they were pretty. “Ballad of the Times,” “Trouble and Strife,” and “Are You Trying to Be Funny?” sound like Byrds melodies recast under grey British skies. Most of the album is spry and danceable, but its centerpiece is the drumless “Kid”: a sublime interpretation of the Chrissie Hynde song. In the hands of The Pretenders it was a mother’s bittersweet confession; Tracey Thorn turns it into a swelling farewell to a former self.
