Love and Its Opposite by Tracey Thorn

4/10 Clinton 13 May 2010

Ah Tracey oh Tracey. She made one of my favourite albums of all time with her ridiculously short, sweet and melancholic 'A Distant Shore' in 1982. Years of MOR mediocrity ahead but Oh! that voice. I'd read she'd returned to a more stripped back sound with her second solo LP in the last few years. Certainly opener 'Oh, The Divorces' is simply piano, the odd string section and that voice with a sobering reflection on that crazy little thing we call divorce. Worryingly on the second track Tracey adopts a Rod Stewart like husky growl and by track 3 we are up to a full band to blanden things out. There are moments of just vocal and guitar as on 'Kentish Town' that's more of what we need Tracey, just voice and guitar - we don't need anything else.
