    The last release from the first set of reissues by Everything But The Girl, this expanded version of their 4th album 'Idlewild' sees the duo take another turn in their musical direction. Gone is the ostentatious sound from their previous record and in it's place is the return of the more intimate style, all be it with a contemporary late 80's edge. Featured in this collection are the singles 'Love Is Here Where I Live', 'I Was Always Your Girl' as well as the stand alone releases 'I Don't Want To Talk About It' and a remix of the album track 'These Early Days'.
    Not many stones have been left unturned for this set as not only do we get a swathe of B-Sides and demos but also a rare alternative version of the album's closer 'Apron Strings'. The record itself seems to hold stronger deep cuts than the singles themselves, including the politically charged ballad 'The Night I Heard Caruso Sing' performed beautifully by Ben Watt, the incredible 'Shadow On A Harvest Moon' and the catchy 'Blue Moon Rose', as well as the aforementioned charm of 'Apron Strings'.
    Although still a little divisive to those who enjoy the group's early and later works, there are some real gems contained in this reissue that would put a grin to many a fan's face, and if you're looking to collect the full set it's still worth listening to.
