5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun., 22 Jun 2012
I really enjoyed Krafty's last album and a follow up was long overdue. I have to say this one is a real treat too. The album is basically one non-stop good time party. The tracks themselves are very well produced and never get boring, covering a good range of club styles. I can honestly say that dance music albums this good are few and far between. If you like feel good dance music, which is not akin to the dumbed down chart rubbish then you will probably like this. Despite the feel good sounds, the album is underpinned by nice heavy beats and basslines which covers all bases for me. My favourite track at the moment is Monkey Dance, which reminds me of how I felt about Prodigy's Out… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars It's been too long.., 22 May 2012
I was expecting the worst from one of my favourite bands, after such a long break between albums. I loved the last one, but this one may just top it for me. As usual all songs are produced with great care and it shows. There really are no fillers on this album, which make it a rare pleasure. The first half of the album is an easy listen and there are some really nice hooks and sounds. The last four tracks of the album are pure bliss. The standout tracks for me (at the moment) are DJ, When I Was Seventeen and the beautiful ballad I Threw it All Away. A sterling return from Saint Etienne. Here's hoping it isn't their last album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous!, 30 Dec 2010
Thankfully a friend of mine managed to get me a copy of this CD from Canada, as it seems very hard to get hold of in the UK. It was well worth the wait & I would rate it as one of the best CD's in my extensive collection. It is evident that a lot of love and effort have been poured into this record. There are absolutely no fillers, which is unusual for most albums (especially true for a 15 track album). Even the shorter tracks are absolute gems. The album starts out in a fairly mellow mood for the first few tracks and then things seem to start to gather momentum from the middle of fourth track onwards. A tone of hope and warmth pervades every single track. There are lots of twists and… Read more
