CRITIC REVIEWS

Words And Music isn’t just a celebration of popular music, but a hymnal ode to a loss of innocence, an end to the passions of our childhood.

80
NME

While Saint Etienne will always sound like Saint Etienne, these songs are their sharpest in over a decade.

80
PopMatters

What makes Words and Music stand out is that it’s both polished and personal, a prime example of how a big pop sound can reach out and connect in the most intimate ways.

78
Pitchfork

Words and Music by Saint Etienne is a sterling affirmation that relating pop music to your life doesn't have to grow more difficult as you get older.

20
FACT Magazine

There is a certain irony to the fact that St Etienne could make a lot of money creating this style of music professionally for functional purposes; soundtracks for holiday TV programs, DVD menu screens, cable infomercials and shopping channels, etc.
