This, I guess, was Belle and Sebastian's "breakthrough" album. The debut was so limited at the time that in those pre-internet days it took until the release of this before many people caught on. It's one of their most consistent albums with some right crackin' tunes as they say especially stuff like 'Mayfly' which showed they could provide some kind of cheerier version of Nick Drake.  This album, alonside all their others is being re-issued to celebrate a brand new album, on its way soon.

If You're Feeling Sinister by Belle and Sebastian

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 11th February 2015

This is probably my favourite Belle and Sebastian album. I was introduced to them, like most people who bought the limited pressing of "Tigermilk", through Mark Radcliffe's late night Radio 1 show in the mid-90s. I missed out on a copy of their debut and had to wait for it to get a proper CD release. "If You're Feeling Sinister" is Belle and Sebastian doing what Belle and Sebastian do best - understated, acoustic guitar-led, twee indie pop. I find that I can listen to it regardless of my mood, which can't be said for their later albums. For me, "The Stars Of Track And Field", "Like Dylan In The Movies", "Judy And The Dream Of Horses" and the title track are four of their best songs. Just for context, I would add "The State I'm In" from "Tigermilk" and the single, "Lazy Line Painter Jane" to that list. This album, therefore, is a concentration of their best stuff.
