At a time when the sound of pop was becoming brasher, more aggressive, and more synthetic, Everything but the Girl looked to the suppler techniques of the '60s for inspiration when recording 1986’s Baby, the Stars Shine Bright. The grand drama of “Come On Home,” “A Country Mile,” and “Sugar Finney” is generated the old-fashioned way: with the top-notch arrangements of a real orchestra, and the bravery and vulnerability of a human voice. In this case, that voice belongs to Tracey Thorn. She earns the mantle of Dusty Springfield, whose influence resounds throughout the album, from “Don’t Let the Teardrops Rust Your Shining Heart” to “Come Hell or High Water.” You’d have to go back to Dusty to find a British artist who could achieve the same incredibly tricky blend of country, soul, and pop contained in “Careless.” And like Springfield, EBTG never come off like Brits desperately trying to ape American styles. Even as it takes cues from Southern soul music and Phil Spector, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright remains wholly and inimitably British. Even a group as well groomed as The Pet Shop Boys would envy the immaculately graceful pop of “Cross My Heart.”
