Everything But the Girl - Walking Wounded

PT 1 of records that stay with me forever

Like Hüsker Dü´s final record this is beautiful in freezing the moment of divorce and transcending it into the truth of two seperate voices that look at the breakup from their POV.
This record is a masterpiece of smooth trippy housetracks transcented by Thracey Thorns voice.
Originally a Folk-Pop band this release marked a U-turn by EBTG embracing 90s electronic music and keeping the majestic fatalistic sadness of Tracey´s Vocals.
When listening to this record I welcome each track like a long lost friend.
Hard to recommend a special song, if pushed I´d say Before Today, Single, Walking Wounded and the Todd Terry Remix of Missing

Concerning Divorce Records: I also highly recommend Warehouse: Songs and Stories by Hüsker Dü
