Three tracks in you realise with horror that [it] is a concept album. Worse, it's a concept album of kitchen-sink dramas about Tony The Milkman and Doris The Housewife set to Saint Etienne's dated indie disco. [Jul 2005, p.120]
JaimeZMay 23, 2006With any dubt about it, this is the first conceptual album from Saint Etienne and the best. Ethereal, danceable, nocturnal.

JasonLJan 31, 2006Very good, very smooth with a couple of standouts. Q Magazine should be dumped from Metacritic. Who writes this drivel?
ToddRFeb 7, 2006Stiff, stodgy, and heavily dated, this album is perfect proof that they should've retired years ago.
