Etienne 's second album, So Toughis a remarkable step forward from Fox Base Alphaboasting a stronger set of songs Abigail - King Diamond - Abigail a sharper focus.
Not only are the pop melodies catchier than before, the group's mastery of swinging '60s arrangements and Eurodisco rhythms is positively infectious, and Sarah Cracknell 's light, airy vocals are alluringly dreamy, giving the record a wonderful, floating quality. The cool club beats, occasional samples, and synthesized textures provide an inviting sonic backdrop for Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs ' infectious pop songs, and while the singles Avenue - Saint Etienne - So Tough in a Bad Way" and "Hobart Paving" stand out, there are several other tracks here that are nearly as good, making So Tough an irresistible set of danceable, well-constructed pop.
