So Tough is the second studio album by British band Saint Etienne. It is their highest-charting album Biar Waktu Yang Menjawab - Tersanjung13 / Jeritan X Sepi - Split date, reaching No.
The album was originally intended as a concept album which starts at Mario's Cafe in London then travels around the world, however it came to be viewed as a solely London album. One of the distinctive features of the album is the use of samples between the songs. The band were keen to use linking dialogue, similar to that used in The Who Sell Out or on contemporary hip-hop albums.
Additionally, the track "Conchita Martinez" features a recurring sample from the opening riff of Rush 's hit " The Spirit of Radio ". The band had intended to use a number of samples from American films, but the cost of clearing these samples led them to using primarily British samples. The song "Mario's Cafe" was inspired by a real Kentish Town restaurant of that name.
The album cover features a picture of lead singer Sarah Cracknell aged 6 taken by her father Derek Cracknell. The former is longer, while the latter features a drum pattern not present on the original version.
