Tiger Bay by Saint Etienne

Tiger Bay was the third studio album by pop boffins Saint Etienne originally released in 1994. The premise of the album was to write modern folk songs that incorporated more up to date production techniques such as electronica, techno and dub welding the modern and the traditional. That said, there's only one traditional song here  - the rest being self-penned originals.

8/10 Jack 27th December 2017

Tiger Bay was the second half of Saint Etienne's great one-two punch -- So Tough and Tiger Bay. So Tough was a much more experimental album, melding sophisticated pop songs with samples including everything from Rush's 'Spirit of Radio,' to Marc almost saying, 'non-stop erotic cabaret.' Tiger Bay, on the other hand was a much more direct record chock full of winning singles and irresistible hooks. Two of Saint Etienne's greatest singles fall from this album: 'Like a Motorway' (an utterly hypnotic song) and 'Hug my Soul' (as perfect a pop song you'll ever want to hear).
