Overview

Despite its title, Amplified Heart is one of Everything but the Girl's more acoustic works. A simple instrumentation of guitars and keyboards, augmented here and there by British folk-rock veterans like Richard Thompson, Danny Thompson, and Dave Mattacks, serves to set up a series of songs of romantic disillusionment. Declaring "my life is just an image of a roller coaster, anyway" and "I don't understand anything," among other things, over and over the songs speak of confusion and disappointment deriving from failed love affairs. The approach is much more introspective than that taken on the group's previous album of new music, Worldwide, but Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt's musical restraint supports it well. This is an album to listen to when you've just broken up with your lover, or even when you're just in the mood to think about lost lovers from long ago -- self-pity set to music.

The best! After 10yrs I am still in love with this CD. It was a very special CD for an X lover &amp I. The lyrics really hit home for all the ups &amp down we had gone through. Actually, &quot Missing&quot started it all. Infact, to date, I still say to him &quot miss you, like the deserts miss the rain&quot . Tracey is an outstanding artist and will follow their music forever!
