1998 saw Saint Etienne release their fourth album Good Humor, which was recorded in Sweden and marks a movement away from the band’s dancier origins. As well as more of a balance between acoustic instruments and synths, the album has quite a loungey soft vibe, almost like a flipside to what Stereolab were doing at a similar time. Reissued on Heavenly.
9/10 Jack Customer review, 27th December 2017
Saint Etienne's Good Humor literally has something for every pop music fan out there. The music is beautiful, and the vocals (by Sarah Cracknell) are smooth and delicious. Swedish producer Tore Johansson really came through for the band with his unique approach to making music. I've listened to this deluxe edition probably more than any other Saint Etienne deluxe edition, and it never disappoints. There is so much variety on both discs that you could listen to them a lot and not get tired of them.
