YMMV / Saint Etienne

  • Black Sheep Hit: "Only Love Will Break Your Heart", while in the band's Alternative Dance roots, is sung by Moira Lambert rather than Face of the Band Sarah Cracknell.
  • Broken Base: When Sound of Water was released, there was a split in the fanbase due to the album's new direction, which was more ambient and trip-hop influenced.
  • Ear Worm: Oh, boy, so many!
  • Face of the Band: Sarah is more famous than Bob and Pete, despite them having founded the band.
  • Signature Song: Fairly successfully averted by dint of "resting" songs from their live set when they threaten to become this. "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" is probably their most recognisable song, thanks to being included on countless compilations.
