Best way to know st. etienne. Don't miss it.

"Sorry for my lousy English.My favorite music type must be simply easy listening.Since I used to be a big fan of Germany singer Sandra.(female vocalist of Enigma). Then there's another girl Princessa following her style,great pop album got 18 great songs on it,all Euro style and she did a cover version of "She's on the phone" from st. etienne. which cause my curiosity about this band. But there's no any formally distributor in Taiwan. I haven't get a chance tolisten to their great tunes for so many years.Their Cds can only found in Tower record and the price ishigh of course,There's no any details I can follow from their alternate cover, so I haven't bought it right away. It could be Rock & Roll which I hate most. One month later, there's a British Exhibition open on a department store, They're playing some big hits from U.K. about this 2 years One of my familiar tune just popping out "He's on the phone".(It's an older song in this case,And it's the only song that I can identify st.etienne. I had never expect to see this MTV in anywhere else.As a matter of fact, I shall never see any st.etienne MTV even if I wanted to.The original version is even better than Princessa's.It must be predestinate.) So I rush my way to Tower and buy this album "Too young to die" So glad I did it and so regret that I missed them for so many years.I also purchased their other CDs of course, But how can I mend the lost 9 years? They're very hard to find and rare in Taiwan let alone those precious CD singles.I may not qualify to be a saint etienne fan, But I do love them with all my heart,fallen in love with them at that moment I played this CD. Within the past 2 months I've tried all the efforts to collect some more but always disappointed.And I'm a fresh beginner as a PC user for I just bought this computer who dying to know more saint etienne news from internet since I can't find other way in Taiwan.I've owned more than 800 CDs.If they did represent something,I can tell you, Saint Etienne is the finest pop band in the world, There's no other artists can imitate their various styles or in any trace sounds like them. They're marvellous,unique and special,wizards for music."

"I think Saint Etienne's music exemplifies what pop music should sound like with their catchy, light-hearted, playful songs. "Too Young to Die" pretty much covers the first half of the band's career. What drew me to this band was that they have been able to incorporate pop with elements of dance music which results in fun pop music minus the cheese. Sarah Cracknell may have a relatively limited vocal styling but her voice goes well with the music that the band puts out. "Too Young to Die" overall is an excellent place for anyone curious about the band's music to begin with."
Saint Etienne need to be recognized for their masterpieces

"This album (the limited edition with the mix cd) was my first of this fantastic, unique and genius band. After seeing the video of "He's On The Phone" I fell in love with the song, produced by Motiv8.
I had absolutely no idea what laid before me. Who'd have known Saint Etienne would change my life this much?
He's On The Phone is pure disco pop to dance all night to (here in a 5 min.+ version), just like I Was Born On Christmas Day, but the rest people, the rest is another thing altogether.
My perception of the band's music, especially their albums before this collection was made, may perhaps have been altered by time spent adoring them, but if you listen to this you will agree these are masterpieces. Where else have you heard such hauntingly beaufitul melodies such as in Avenue, Hobart Paving?
I grew to love every single track here.
But what came after this for me? Well, surprise surprise: most of the songs have been slightly remixed, some are radio versions.
The original album versions....are even better!!! Kiss And Make Up, with that echo of the sweet base, or People Get Real, the sound almost gets lost in the sweet vocals of the uncelebrated queen of indie pop that is Sarah Cracknell.
You need to grab FoxBase Alpha, You Need A Mess of Help To Stand Alone and So Tough at least to realize what lies behind this greatest hits album.
Saint Etienne, please never leave us"
