Overview

Die-hard Saint Etienne fans have all of this stuff but, for the casual explorer, Heavenly's 2008 collection London Conversations: The Best of Saint Etienne is the best place to catch up and fall in love. Covering everything from their first single through 2002's Finisterre, London Conversations offers up a good spread, with hits and obscure B-sides occupying equal territory. The running order runs (mostly) chronologically on each CD, but the sequence flows well enough that the "mx-tape" vibe remains hip-ly intact for the listener. [The U.S. release brings only the audio, while the U.K. edition ups the ante with a bonus DVD of music videos. That little bonus feature may make this collection an attractive piece of completist kit for the diehards after all.]
