All About Eve

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris True
To label in any way the self-titled debut from All About Eve "goth" is a perfect example of how loosely the term was being thrown around in the mid- to late '80s in England. Sure, the Eves had a bit of goth cred touring with the Mission, early singles that sounded a lot like Siouxsie, but All About Eve is more folksy than menacing, and follows the tradition of later-era Fairport Convention more than Bauhaus or the Sisters of Mercy.
