Casablanca is the fifth album by Australian punk band The Saints. The full title on the album's cover is I Thought This Was Love, but This Ain't Casablanca, however the official title of the album is simply Casablanca. It was released internationally as Out in the Jungle ... Where Things Ain't So Pleasant.

The Saints' founder and vocalist Chris Bailey said, "This is my own opinion, and it changes with a few drinks or whatever, but it's the first record I can actually say I like the atmosphere of, the closest I've ever got to making a record that... seems closer to what I had up here."[2]
