Sound of Water (2000) is an album by Saint Etienne. At the time of release, this album split the band's fanbase between those who preferred the more commercial song-based sound of Good Humor and singles like "You're in a Bad Way" and "He's on the Phone" from those who appreciated the band's new direction, which was more experimental in nature. Sound of Water was developed as Saint Etienne's ambient and trip hop statement.

On Sound of Water, Saint Etienne's earlier records now seem to represent a world that can be observed, or fondly/painfully remembered, but no longer entered into. And musically, it seems that for the band growing up means smartening up. The swooning ambience of the band's first few records has likewise been buffed away, revealing sleeker, sharper-edged techno-pop. The album is more traditionally stylish, but tinged with an ill-defined sadness.

The album strove to keep the concise, song-oriented focus of Good Humor, while expanding the horizons of their music to focus on abstract, dreamy, electronic sounds. There are moments of pop pleasure here, surrounded by spare, languid electronica sections, vaguely reminiscent of the High Llamas.

Saint Etienne had their biggest hit in July 2000 – as featured artists on Paul van Dyk’s club-trance banger Tell Me Why. Their fifth album, The Sound of Water, had been released only a few weeks before and its first single was a very different offering. Recorded in To Rococo Rot’s studio in Berlin, it sounds noir-y and coolly European, although its lyrics are starkly British.
