Editorial Reviews

Deluxe digitally remastered and expanded edition of the British trio's 1993 album featuring a bonus CD containing 17 rarities, b-sides and unreleased tracks, including a superb cover version of Teenage Fanclub's 'Everything Flows'. So Tough was Saint Etienne's second album and followed hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Foxbase Alpha. The album hit #7 in the charts, the band's highest album chart position to date. The album features the classic singles 'You're In A Bad Way', 'Avenue' and 'Hobart Paving'. The luxurious packaging includes a 24 page booklet featuring extensive sleevenotes. Universal.

The first two Saint Etienne albums remain fantastic time capsules of the late 80s transformation from dance styles like Freestyle, House and Dance Pop into a broader, more democratic style that incorporated hip hop beats, sampling and a hipsters eye to the hazy, nostalgia of the past. I still prefer the more open, effervescent quality of Fox Base Alpha, but find both albums are criminally UNDERRATED! As much as I love Sarah Cracknell, it is still a bit of a mystery to me as to why Moira Lambert, she of "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and "Calico" fame, wasn't incorporated into more tracks. Her contributions are stellar!

The “So Tough” deluxe edition is another fabulous addition to the Saint Etienne catalogue. While this record is a bit different than their later albums, it still has that magical sound that Saint Etienne fans crave. To me, the thing that separates “So Tough” from later Saint Etienne records is that the musical arrangements have more of a grand, sweeping sound on many of the tracks. To hear examples of this, look no further than “Conchita Martinez,” “Leafhound,” and “Avenue.” This isn’t a bad thing necessarily, but it does add a different flavor to the songs on this record. Also, the bonus disc is simply lovely. Songs like “Everything Flows,” “Orpington Blues,” and “Some Place Else” have that accessible beauty that the band is known for. If you can find a good deal on this one, don’t pass it up. This is highly recommended.

I already owned the old CD, but this remastered version drags So Tough into the mp3 age with much clearer and louder sounds. The new liner notes covering the Etiennes in 1992 is worth the $ alone!
