“When I was ten, I wanted to explore the world.”

Pop begins here.

In a bedroom in the North, the South, the East or the West, softly-lit thanks to the scarf thrown across the lamp – just like Bolan’s, or Bowie’s, or Agnetha’s, or Kylie’s. It comes through headphones black and bulky, or small and cushioned. Down the canal to the drum, the ... Read more in Amazon's Saint Etienne Store

I love this album to bits, it's the greatest collection of songs, samples, humour and feelgood charm I've ever listened to. I listen to all sorts of music from classical and jazz to rock, but still I keep coming back to this album, over and over again.
I saw Saint Etienne live at Leicester Poly in 1992 or 1993, they were awesome (and supported by a then-obscure band called Pulp).
Buy it, love it, chill out.

I admit it - I was completely suckered by Foxbase Alpha. I loved Only Love Can Break Your Heart and had been waiting for the lp to drop - and what a diverse surprise it was. Their more experimental stuff has aged better than the housey stuff, which is why the bonus disc is such good value. The 5 unreleased demos are just the icing on a very rich cake, including 2 versions of Kiss And Make Up, the brilliant Filthy and the original version of Winter In America (previously known only as a Psychonauts mix on Casino Classics). But the extra tracks complement the original album, which remains a classic of modish cool. It is very much of its time, so it may work better on people who lived it, but this is a very nice definitive deluxe edition type product.

Saint Etienne's debut album, now over ten years old, sounds as fresh to me today as it did the first time I heard it. A mixture of Northern Soul tinged dance, atmospheric strings and blissed-out pop, Foxbase Alpha is one of the classic albums of the last fifteen years. From the timeless cover of "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", through the stoned summer groove of "Spring" to the joyful pop of "Nothing Can Stop Us" and the breathtaking "London Belongs To Me", this album oozes quality from start to finish. Even the dark and brooding "Carn't Sleep" and "She's The One" are packed with classic pop moments you'll want to hear again and again - and with the inclusion of the disco-tastic "People Get Real" on the import version, perfection is acheived. Summer just wouldn't be summer without it.

Simply put...the only band that will change your definition of "pop music" This is a timeless, classic and utterly unforgettable album that summed up the 90's. The fact that the deluxe version comes with Filthy, a song so ahead of its time it's kinda scary, makes this the best purchase for ANY worthy music lover out there! I love St Etiene more than i love Massive Attack. And that says something!

Foxbase Alpha is already a classic album by Saint Etienne. The extra disc of tracks makes it even better. The sound is great and the extra tracks are a motherlode of stuff you would never expect but will certainly enjoy. If you like this, also check out the deluxe edition 2 disc set of Continental which is available right now. The second disc on that set is perhaps better than the first one!
