All I Ever Wanted: The Anthology

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Kirsty MacColl first emerged on the British pop scene as something of a novelty -- her first single was the girl group pastiche "They Don't Know," which became a hit when covered by comic Tracey Ullman, and her first chart success on her own was the witty country-styled number "There's a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis."

A motorboat accident claimed MacColl's life in 2000, cutting short a career that was still in motion. All I Ever Wanted: The Anthology is a two-disc collection that brings together highlights from MacColl's albums Kite, Electric Landlady (1991), Titanic Days (1993), and the posthumous Tropical Brainstorm (2001), as well as early singles, 12" remixes, and BBC radio performances. All I Ever Wanted is a suitably thorough and tremendously entertaining look at an artist who left behind a small but impressive legacy.
