CD Ultra-Lounge, Vol. 1: Mondo Exotica
Q (7/96, p.151) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...MONDO EXOTICA features marimbas, chimes, monkey noises and vibes, much favoured by watusi-mad WWII soldiers home from the South Pacific..."
CD The Sound of Tiki [Digipak]
CD Ultra-Lounge, Vol. 17: Bongoland
Rolling Stone (5/24/01, p.86) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A strong collection of Wilco-like ballads and pop-ish midtempo musings on love, loss and life lessons....a nice farewell from a band that was at the forefront of today's alt-country scene..."Spin (6/01, p.152) - 8 out of 10 - "...A great Saturday-morning record. Its woozy fiddles, grainy acoustic-electric guitars, and pop-strong harmonies give you the courage to face the day armed with roots-rock fortune cookery..."Entertainment Weekly (5/25/01, pp.80-1) - "...Raspy, elegant, sleepy...Strings, horns, and even a stray loop, up the lonesome ante....They exited with a gem..." - Rating: B+Q (7/01, p.125) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Songs that breathe the same rarefied air as Ryan Adams solo material....bringing to mind such disparate references as The Band, Cole Porter, and even a Deep South take on the breezy Prefab Sprout. Underpinning everything is [his] honey-and-smoke voice..."CMJ (5/14/01, p.4) - "...Offers insight into the artistoc progression of Adams and violinist/vocalist Caitlin Cary...Unyielding in its variety, from AM-radio/late Fleetwood Mac...to smooth, Martin Denny castanets and classic Hollywood symphonies..."No Depression (5-6/01, pp.122-3) - "...A masterfully assembled and brilliantly played collection of songs that jumps genres gleefully..."

CD Walking Wounded [Everything But the Girl] 
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..."
