Best of 1991

St. Etienne is an English pop band that I find quite original and interesting. The name of the band comes from the football club "AS Saint-Etienne", a French club that I know cause I'm French. The debut album of Saint-Etienne is their best album. "Foxbase Alpha" really offers beautiful melodies and catchy rhythms. The piano is really catchy and dance club in this album. Good work!

Best track: "Only Love Can Break Your Heart"
