Tiger Bay [Deluxe Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Thompson
After three years (and two albums) of stunning development, Saint Etienne's disco-llision of '60s pop, '70s dance, and '90s club reached the peak by which they are still judged, with an album that is alternately heartwarming, heartbreaking, electrifying, and impossibly captivating.

Tiger Bay is alternately seductive, silly, and sassy. But it was also constructed with such an eye for sensuous detail that any attempt whatsoever to toy with the track listing can only shatter the crystal.
