5.0 out of 5 stars A pop masterpiece, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Words And Music By Saint Etienne [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Even the most optimistic Saint Etienne fan couldn't have expected something this good. From start to finish, there isn't a single off moment; you keep waiting for a lull to hit, but it never happens. "Over the Border," is one of the most gorgeous pop openers you'll ever hear, and the dance grooves kick in full throttle with "I've Got Your Music," "DJ," "Popular," and the killer lead single "Tonight," whose album version here is a perfect medium between the single one and the extended remix. The quieter moments are just as potent, too, really hammering home the poignant theme of how music becomes a kind of lifeline carrying you from youth into adulthood and beyond. Sarah's voice sounds better than ever, and Bob and Pete come up with some of their most ear-pleasing arrangements yet. Absolutely sterling stuff.
(Also, it's just silly this isn't available in the U.S. as of this writing while Katy Perry's last album gets 10 different editions. Come on, folks.)
