    Recorded as St. Etienne was on an extended hiatus, Sarah Cracknell's solo debut Lipslide is a breezy, endearing record that wears its lightweight aspirations proudly. Divided equally between Euro-dance and British Invasion pop, Lipslide is a triumph of style over substance, but its surfaces are so appealing that the uneven songwriting doesn't matter. And when Cracknell's writing does succeed, as on "Anymore," and "Ready or Not," Lipslide shines with both infectious, well-crafted melodies and sparkling, sunny charm. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (4/00, p.80) - 4 out of 5 - " enticing blend of disco, pop, techno and soul. All the material here is strong....[Her] gifts for a catchy melody and sultry, charismatic voice have been big keys to [St. Etienne's] success..."
    Magnet (4-5/00, p.69) - "...a study in elegantly cool, Dusty Springfield-like divadom....She offers continental delicacies and homespun confections....It's a sweet gift..."
    CMJ (2/7/00, p.20) - "...very much in tune with St. Etienne's retro-futuristic fusion of Brit pop and post-rave grooves....[Her] whimsical ballads are enlivened with moving guitar passages and energetic brass/piano counterpoints....This is a lost gem that you won't want to overlook twice."
