Baby, the Stars Shine Bright album for sale Product Description



Baby, the Stars Shine Bright album for sale by Everything But The Girl was released Jun 12, 2012 on the Edsel Records label. On their third album, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, Everything But the Girl tries another departure on their craftsmanlike ballad style, hiring a full orchestra to give a lush backing to songs usually concerned more with sexual than national politics. Their last album, Love Not Money, may have boasted a considerable social agenda, but here Tracey Thorn sings of romantic disappointment and illicit liaisons, only occasionally bowing to such favorite themes as the lure of fame ("Country Mile"), fantasies about American movie stars ("Sugar Finney," which is "for Marilyn Monroe," and has the chorus, "America is free, cheap and easy"), and fears of fascism ("Little Hitler"). Baby, the Stars Shine Bright CD music is a 2-disc set with 22 songs.   ...See Full Description

"An Underground Pop Classic"
"Baby, The Stars Shine Bright" from 1986 is undoubtedly some of the finest neo-pop/jazz recordings that came out during the mid eighties post-punk/new wave era. Baby, the Stars Shine Bright album for sale Imagine if you will the arrangements and orchestrations of a Burt Bacharach or Ray Conniff and couple that with the exquisite songwriting skills of Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn. Critics from both coasts were kinda unsure about this release, yet fans like myself was sold and mesmerized. "Cross Your Heart" alone should have been a hit single that could have spawned many remakes. This is definitely one of those recordings that just grows on you with every listen. Perhaps one of this duo's most daring both musically and lyrically to date---"Walking Wounded" is another one that might come close. While attending art school at the Art Center in Pasadena, "Baby" was my constant late night listening companion, during those moments of sleepless isolation and bouts of melancholy. To this day, its incredible, swooning Phil Spector-esque sound instantly transported me for years to come.

Unmissable
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright CD music Quite simply the best EBTG album around (just shading The Language Of Life) with songs that are so personal for me. Swoon with Tracey's empathetic vocals and cry for all your worth with "Cross My Heart" - even now 16 years later I'm instantly transported back to where I was. This album defined my own passage through adolescence along with all the associated anxt - to lose or forget it would scar me for the rest of my days. Cheers Ben and Tracey - an absolute classic.

Almost put me to sleep...
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright buy CD music Being a huge EBTG fan, I was sure I would like this album when I found it. Bought it. Hated it. Well, didn't really "hate" it, since Tracy Thorn's awesome voice complimented it, but the album was too slow in my opinion, and was like "Elevator Music meets Tracy Thorn in a dentist office" If you like slow, mellow stuff, then you will appreciate this album, otherwise I would never recommend it to my friends. Sorry, but my opinion needs to be counted.
