EDITORS’ NOTES

Saint Etienne’s dazzling debut looms large over ’90s downtempo, electro, and indie dance. Featuring dusty ’60s pop moves arranged elegantly over house grooves borrowed from the UK’s booming rave scene, the album unfolds like a luxurious dream you wish would never end. Chanteuse Sarah Cracknell is the embodiment of grace and sophistication on the stunning “Spring” and the romantic “Kiss and Make Up,” though it’s Moira Lambert who takes the lead on the sumptuous, danceable reimagining of Neil Young’s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart.”

Finally!

I've had this album for years (sadly on audio cassette) and it's nice to see that iTunes has finally released the digital version. For me each song is a classic. Just one thing though... Does anyone have the correct lyrics to Girl Vll?

FINALLY!!!!!!

This album truly has what defines a generation! Thank you Itunes for finally getting it!! Saint Etienne's best album for sure!! Pretty much the whole album is strong, with several that have always stayed so close throughout the years- (only love can break your heart, people get real, nothing can stop us, kiss and make up). This was the one album that the Americans just totally missed out on- PHENOMENAL!!!
