After the brilliant 2019 reissues of Amplified Heart and Walking Wounded — both also half-speed remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, Everything But The Girls have announced on their Unmade Road website on 16th March 2020 that their ninth and final studio album Temperamental, which was first released in September 1999, is reissued on May 8 2020.
Often seen as a companion piece to its million-selling predecessor Walking Wounded, it once again skilfully merged worlds contemporary electronic dance music and smart singer-songwriting.
While not embraced by a rock press tiring of electronica, Temperamental album was acclaimed in many quarters on its release. “Triumphant after-hours club pop” said Spin in an effusive full-page 9/10 lead review. “Entirely natural, wholly wonderful” said the Sunday Times. “The definitive dance album steeped in all things pop. Sublime and essential” commented Billboard, while Time Out offered, “If EBTG discovered nightlife late, it is one of their greatest strengths. Wide-eyed and wondrous.”
Temperamental is re-issued on 180gm double vinyl with half-speed mastering on Buzzin’ Fly Records/Chrysalis Recordings on 8 May 2020.
