I don't like Stereolab, I absolutely love them.They were my constant sound track through the 90's (and beyond). Beautiful,disparate, mellifluous, serotonin enhancing gorgeousness.There are many reviews out there of the Groop and their music.Some very informative and interesting. Many contrasting.But that's the beauty of subjectivism. I'd just like to say to all the "Lab Virgins" out there, who are thinking of taking the plunge, jump on in, the water's beautiful! Now, this may be unhelpful to those of you who need some guidance as to what Lab album to listen to first, but here lays my point. Break the shackles of herd mentality, choose for yourself, and ENJOY.
