Q (4/96, p.106) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Their stance seems superficially predictable--vibraphone here, Latin shuffle there, cooing female vocals on the odd track...a shoot-out between the resident musicians at a `60s steak house and a Space Invaders machine..."Alternative Press (6/96, p.75) - 4 - Well Done - "...darkly beautiful in places...incorporating some genuine futurism into their martini-sipping groove..."Melody Maker (2/24/96, p.36) - Bloody Essential - "...CE's spirit...is light years away from [kitsch]....[SCHIZOPHONIC] is an ice-shaker of vibraphones, brushes on snare drums, Esquivel e-squiggles, Tijuana brass, scat vocals and existential lyrics....A gem of ultravivid opulence..."0.2677015

Rolling Stone (2/20/97, p.70) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...elements of alternative rock, jazz, samba, bolero, hardcore punk, classic rock, soul and disco...the kind of music Esquivel might have made if he had belonged to generation Equis....Violent Femmes-meet-Beck magical-realist melodicism..."Spin (2/97, p.86) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Platinum-selling avatars of el rocanrol Mexicano, Tacuba make no concessions to gringo tastes....Cafe Tacuba are, much like Talking Heads used to be, elegantly quirky exemplars of brains in an ongoing search for the heart of the heart of their country."Entertainment Weekly (1/10/97, p.58) - "...beatnik bandidos Cafe Tacuba rap with dry anger while irreverently subjecting Latin standards to techno synths and industrial clatter..." - Rating: B+Alternative Press (5/97, p.67) - 4 (out of 5) - "...This collection is thouroughly enjoyable, and Tacuba deserve the attention."0.2342388

Rolling Stone (6/13/96, pp.85-86) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...a hair away from being flawless....The aural jaggedness of contemporary clubland not only perfectly complements EBTG's piercing words and aching vocals but it also burns away any residual preciousness. What's left is raw, pure and absolutely gorgeous."Spin (9/99, p.164) - Ranked #87 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."Spin (1/97, p.59) - Ranked #15 on Spin's list of the `20 Best Albums of '96.'Spin (7/96, p.88) - 9 (out of 10) - "...Though [Thorn's] restraint runs counter to current diva acrobatics, she's still incredibly mannered, gently nudging songs along with a personalized assortment of heys and yeahs. It's the grain of her voice...rather than her range, that is special..."Entertainment Weekly (12/27/96-1/3/97, pp.144-146) - Ranked #2 on Entertainment Weekly's list of the "Top 10 Albums And Singles Of 1996."Entertainment Weekly (5/24/96, pp.93-94) - "...provide modern pop's first corollary to the weird sounds cooked up by the early '60s' most avant-garde lounge stylists: Esquivel and Martin Denny....[EBTG] offer an ideal conduit between today's chic underground and pop fans everywhere." - Rating: AVibe (8/96, p.132) - "...Everything But The Girl continue to explore new territory...and deeper into house, jungle and trip hop..."Melody Maker (5/4/96, p.59) - Recommended - "...Personally, I always found Ben and Tracey's continual love-affair-turned-sour laments a little too drippy, too sappy for my taste, but...oh, what a little laid back drum'n'bass can do!..."Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #12 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.117) - "...A certain lyrical introspection on the title track...infuses deep Jungle waves and breaks with resonance and sensitivity....[WALKING WOUNDED] is a testimony to the strength of collaboration, the possibility of rejuvenation..."NME (Magazine) (5/4/96, p.56) - 6 (out of 10) - "...isn't quite the all-out conversion to gutsy house, drum'n'bass and trip-hop we had hoped for....the songs are...well-crafted and no doubt spectacularly meaningful, and Thorn's vocals as finely elegiac and deeply emotive as ever..."0.1338507
