Tracey Thorn

OK folks, today an album of love songs! The songs may be about the difficult parts of love, but anyway here is  Tracey Thorn´s (Marine Girls, Everything But The Girl) third solo album "Love and it´s opposite" (Strange Feeling Records 2010).
I must admit I was preparing a post on this album as one of the great break-up albums, because some of the best songs here are very sad or bitter sweet ("Oh the Divorces", "Singles Bar"), but thank God it seems like Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt are doing just fine! Read an interview in The Guardian to settle your nerves. Phuh!
On Lee Hazelwood´s "Come on home to me" she is joined by the good Swede,  Jens Lekman.

Great voice, good lyrics and fine melodies, and you probably have this album already, since it has been out for a while.
