Out Of The Woods - Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

The Guardian - 80
Based on rating 4/5

The emergence of former Everything But the Girl singer Tracey Thorn from retirement should not, by rights, have resulted in one of the most dynamic, forward-thinking pop albums of the year so far. However, the spellbinding mix of shimmering folk and shimmying disco on Out of the Woods eclipses her past work. Thorn's list of collaborators is impressive: there are contributions from Metro Area and the Rapture's Gabe Andruzzi, and remixer du jour Ewan Pearson produces the bulk of the album.

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Raising three children kept Tracey Thorn all but completely away from music for several years. Apart from appearing on Tiefschwarz's "Damage," she was completely absent since 1999, while husband and Everything But the Girl partner Ben Watt continued DJing and operating his Buzzin' Fly label. Thorn even thought it possible at one point that she might not record again, but she has returned with help from several collaborators to make her second solo album, released 25 years after her first.
