Synopsis

Amazon.com
Saint Etienne have unbelievable musical cred. Indie-poppers love them for covering the Field Mice's twee classic "Kiss and Make Up" and rediscovering the reclusive '80s girl group the Dolly Mixture. Electroniacs dig them for being early movers in the disco revival. Everybody else loves them for being our generation's ABBA. But it wasn't enough--they wanted to cash in on the Northwest grunge scene by signing to Sub Pop! Fear not. Good Humor is a far cry from grunge. It is the cleanest, lightest, loveliest confection to grace any American label in ages, let alone the heavy, crunchy one. Longtime Saint Etienne fans will notice the clean focus of the electronic arrangements on Good Humor as well as the fancy horn section and the amazing, woozy bass playing of their Swedish producer, Tore Johansson. Haul this record out to bring back your favorite summer day or when you're wishing life were like a Mentos commercial. --Lois Maffeo

It Still Sounds Great in 2009
B. Kindberg | Boise, ID USA | 01/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Swedish Producer Tore Johannsen. Seattle treasure SubPop records. This album is one of the most unique of the 90's. Abba comparisons are foolish-but you will read alot of them."Goodnight Jack" is the most beautiful,trippy,hypnotic song I have ever heard. Anyone put off by their dance-band associations will not really have to deal with disco here,as the album is just perfect pop music. The point brought up in other reviews about the rare 2nd disc Fairfax High is valid. Pay the extra for it. Fairfax's "Swim Swan Swim" is perfect, It is my favorite instrumental from this band. I own all their albums, they are all good; this one is the best."
