As ever, the personal has often been political in Tracey Thorn's work. Across 4 decades, her songs and writing have offered up a clear-eyed woman's view of the immediate world around her, from the acerbic teen love songs of her first early '80s band Marine Girls through sixteen years as one-half of articulate multimillion-selling duo Everything But The Girl, to her recent acclaimed memoirs and journalism. "I think I've always written songs which chronicle the milestones of a woman's life," she says. "Different ages and stages, different realities not often discussed in pop lyrics. If 2010's Love and It's Opposite was my mid-life album - full of divorce and hormones - then this album represents that sense of liberation that comes in the aftermath, from embarking on a whole new 'no fucks given' phase of life."

So, while I'm really happy with the record and am ecstatic to have new music from Tracey, it's not at the level of some of her (and EBTG's) other albums, so I just can't give it 5 stars. But don't let that stop you from buying / streaming it!
Hard to fault any of the tracks, all quite listenable, the "record" if anything, little too short? My only criticism of a dance album that has been polished to within an inch of its life. More, please!
