Customer Reviews

S'Okay.

Shopping at IKEA for stuff, I heard 'I was born on Christmas day' over the background music that was being played. I never heard of Saint Etienne, and since I'm always on the look-out for great stuff (that's not forced down my throat on the radio), I purchased the album. My first impression of Saint Etienne, was that they must hav been influenced by Zero 7 --which is not a bad thing. This album is perfect for 'background' music, something your not really paying attention too.

I found that the music leaves much to the imagination. I get the distinct impression that the Lyrics were picked mostly to fit the music and make no real sense. The one really interesting thing about the music is the little change-ups that occur just as I'm about to get borded with the simplistic melodies. What you end up with is cheesy sound synth superimposed a more mature sonuding techno-synth. Some tracks use what sounds like a throw-away cheap Drum machine.

The album includes alternate versions of two songs (Hug my Soul, and Like a Motorway). I've never been a fan of albums that include 'Alternate' versions of it's own songs. I think there was a little bit of creative compromise taking place there.

I'm not sorry I bought this Album. I think Saint Eteinne, have potential to be a great band. If you like Zero 7, or TelepopMusik then you will probably like this album.

Led by songwriters Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, and fronted by vocalist Sarah Cracknell, the group managed to carry out their concept, and, in the process, Saint Etienne helped make indie dance a viable genre within the U.K. Throughout...
