Album

Foxbase Alpha is the first album by British band Saint Etienne, released in 1991. The album was recorded in a style which drew on the club culture and house music of the time, but also incorporates the group's characteristic love of 1960s pop, with tracks also bridged by samples from films or by short songs. At the time of recording, Sarah Cracknell was not fully part of the group, and as a result she does not sing on Only Love Can Break Your Heart, which is sung by Moira Lambert.

Foxbase Alpha is the debut album by British band Saint Etienne, released in 1991. The album was recorded in a style which is close to the house music sound of the time, but songs like Nothing Can Stop Us and Wilson display the group's characteristic love of '60s pop and several samples. Longer songs like Stoned to Say the Least and Like the Swallow are reminiscent of ambient house akin to The Orb. Like its follow-up So Tough, Foxbase Alpha's songs are. Foxbase Alpha. Listen to this new reissue of the band's debut album, 1991's Foxbase Alpha and you'll hear that, then as now, Saint Etienne made lovely, accessible music. But Foxbase is also far closer to capital-P pop than the band's recent refined blend of exuberance and melancholy. So why didn't I hear Saint Etienne songs like Foxbase's Nothing Can Stop Us and Only Love Can Break Your Heart- both Billboard 1s on the dance charts- burbling from communal boomboxes in eighth grade . Foxbase Alpha is already a classic album by Saint Etienne. The extra disc of tracks makes it even better. The sound is great and the extra tracks are a motherlode of stuff you would never expect but will certainly enjoy.

The sound quality is really no reason to get this box. The 45 rpm mastering is a fine idea, but pressing it at GZ spoils it completely. Really no point, sounds s-t. Original pressings sound much better.

I bought this album because I had heard "Only Love Can Break My Heart" and loved the singer's voice...So I was quite disappointed when the girl singing on the rest of the album was not the same, but Sarah Cracknell's voice grew on me after a while. However it's been such a long time and water under the bridge.
Kefym Kefym
Very smooth sounding album, very great and kinda lounge sounding<3
Daiktilar Daiktilar
Errm, this is still available from the bands website for £50? So why charge £65 for it...

I don't have any other pressing to compare it to, but the 45 rpm 2 LP version here sounds quiet and nice, but still not super dynamic. I guess there's just not huge punch in the original recordings. There is something kind of wrong about splitting this LP across 4 sides. The additional interruptions seem to weaken the whole thing. As much as I like this album and this pressing's good sound, I probably would have done better to save some money, skip "Remains of the Day" etc. and just buy the 2016 Heavenly LP RE.

Not sure why it's that strange of comment... I agree with the reservations about splitting this across 4 sides. It's not that long of an album, and is built to flow with all of its interludes, so stretching it feels like it loses some of the charm. And while "Remains" is nice, it would have been much better to have more to entice buyers than just one unreleased demo and some (no longer) rare tracks "new to vinyl but readily available many times otherwise." The 2x45 RPM strategy frankly seems like a gimmick with that in mind. I love Saint Etienne and squeal with any genuinely new content, but the well seems to have run dry for this era.

Strange comment. The pressing is very good and The Remains of the Day album and the whole box package is absolutely stunning. Bad idea to skip this in my opinion.
Syleazahad Syleazahad
So, on the "Remains Of The Day" vinyl, you get the Sarah Cracknell vocal version of "Kiss And Make Up" but when you download the digital tracks you get the Original 12" Mix with Donna Savage singing. A little error I guess.
Rit Rit
It wouldn't be a proper St Etienne deluxe edition without the odd error thrown in, would it? ;-)
Impala Frozen Impala Frozen
Fantastic sound for this remastered edition and lot of bonus . Superbe réédition, allez les verts !
Falya Falya
As if you needed telling, but avoid this pressing. Plain Records proving themselves completely useless at releasing a decent product. Save yer pennies and get an original press of this great album.
Celace Celace
Wish I would have read this before I purchased it off of Amazon. I wish Plain Records would catch fire and just burn to the ground. Everything they produce is trash, and somehow they keep getting these contracts for some beloved 90's albums, it's just tragic.
Budar Budar
Does anyone know why Sarah Cracknell didn't sing on Only Love Can Break Your Heart, their biggest hit?
Mozel Mozel
She was not an official member of the group yet when it was first released. They never re-recorded it once she joined, unlike with "Kiss and Make Up" (single release vs. "US version" on later compilations).

amazing album one of my favorite is Only Love Can Break Your Heart

Foxbase Alpha- I remember finding this tape under the seat of my car and thinking, "what the hell is this?"- weird cover + title, a group I'd never heard of- it wound up being my friend's who never missed it. Umpteen years later, it still rocks my world- especially Stoned to Say the Least, but actually every track. Cracknell's voice is almost incomparably girly and sexy, and the music as described above is poppy but eclectic accessible to even the most purist of house fans. But Saint Etienne fit into no strict category- like Groove Armada of "Vertigo" fame, it's "dance" music that's breezy and catchy while being musically and creatively balanced. And FA is, doubtless, their best album.

Saint Etienne's first album, FOXBASE ALPHA, rightfully set the standard for pop music. In a world where "pop music" is seen as somehow substandard, Saint Etienne proves the critics that pop can both be catchy and musically worthwhile (the humorous and sample-heavy interludes notwithstanding). "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," a Neil Young cover, is an obvious hit, but less likely tracks also sparkle: "Girl VII," "Spring" and "Carnt Sleep" run the gamut from uptempo fun to downtempo lullaby. And, as if to prove their range, "Stoned to Say the Least" is a instrumental house track, while "Like the Swallow" starts off ambient, then verges into melancholy. There are a few missteps, like the overused sample on "She's the One" or the slightly watery "London Belongs to Me," but the summery warmth of "People Get Real" and "Nothing Can Stop Us" amply make up any shortcomings.
