3.0 out of 5 stars sneaky flutes 22 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
a little history; laika were formed when moonshake's bassist, producer and mags fiedler decided to do a runner.
this compilation sees their first three albums dissected for our listening pleasure. therein lie the problems one gets with any 'best of/ greatest hits' comps; variable track listings. the fun starts with the fact that some of the best tracks like 'thomas' and 'honey's in heat' are omitted and the more boring/ ambient ones (sugar daddy, remixes of if you miss and marimba song) get an ill-deserved airing. having said that, good to see 'red river' and 'coming down glass' launched on unsuspecting ears
the quality started to dip after the debut album as laika lost their edge and started getting more in tune with the coffee table set. that said, 'lying goat' and 'lie low' are decent while the quality of the unreleased tracks 'beestinger' and 'lower than stars' is up to 'silver apples...' standard. throw in a decent jack dangers treatment of a good track 'looking for...' and that's yer lot.
and mr frennet is still an excellent bassist

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning retrospective from beat masters 20 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
Laika - the band named after the astro-poodle who in 1957 blasted off into space in search of the 'intergalactic bone'. While this may have been a rather ill advised decision by the canine adventurer, there doesn't really seem to be anything about her musical namesakes that hasn't been thoroughly thought about first. You can tell from the beautifully presented inlay that the last 10 years have been a labour of love for Margeret Fielder et al. This is a two disc set - the first disc containing material from 1993-2002, the second disc containing remixes and live tracks. The album is an eclectic mix of trip-hop, ambient beats, and soulful poetry to lose yourself in. Whether it's the harrowing melancholy of "Breather" or the sarcastic love tribute "Shut Off/Curl Up", Laika have created an album that never fails to emote - theres even a song about masturbating in a telephone booth "Coming Down Glass".
I Laika double-disc set (sorry...), and I love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply... 3 Mar 2003
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
... the best album I've heard in a long, long time. Dubby, jazzy, chilled - each track a blinder. If I had to make comparisons I'd struggle and would be doing Laika down - they're unique. I'm still listening to it over and over and each listen gets better. 2 CDs often means the second (remixes, rarities etc.) is a filler but in this case, I think the 2nd CD is better. Apart from the music, the other huge plusses are the fantastic, glossy sleevenotes and the fact that the electronics are complimented with real instruments ('proper' drums and guitars). Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to some brilliantly original electronica 14 Sep 2005
By GraceNoteX - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Laika is a unique blend of ambient, electronica, and trip hop. "Tasteful restraint" sums up their approach to the genre. Guy Fixsen's choice of sonic elements and his arrangements make these tracks more timeless than most of their trip hop contemporaries. Portisheads' "Dummy" is still a work of genius, but many of its production elements already make the CD sound sadly dated. Laika's songs don't share that problem.

The underlying tracks are a mix of synth based soundscapes, atmospheric samples, live instrumentation, ambient percussion and border-line d-n-b drums (Laika crossed that border on the more recent "Wherever I Am I Am What Is Missing").

Margaret Fiedler's vocals float like a wistful mist over the top of these tracks one moment and cut through them with a gentle urgency the next. Her voice has just that right mix of female-chill-out smoothness and original personality to work within this context. Purely ambient music is intended to create atmosphere, allowing the listener give the music itself as much or as little attention as they choose. Most vocal music makes poor ambient, since vocals and the narrative nature of lyrics tend to demand attention. But even Laika's lyrics have an ambient quality. The listener can tune them out altogether and let the vocal be just another element in the soundscape, or focus on them at any point be rewarded with intriguing, poignant images that add to the atmosphere.

The melodies are sparse. Laika approaches vocals as an equal partner in the total piece. Rather than instruments and arrangement merely framing and supporting the melody, they share equal responsibility for the listening experience, and the sparseness of the melodies maintains balance.

Disc 1 hardly sounds like a compilation. Even though the tracks were recorded over a nine year period, the CD is as coherent as the best concept album. Hard to believe some of these tracks are more than 10 years old. It's best to think of disc 2 as a bonus CD, as it is a little more uneven from track to track. But as a bonus CD, it is quite a plus to the package.

A nice listening experience that can fit quite a range of moods.

5.0 out of 5 stars electronic pop bliss 16 Mar 2003
By J. Persh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In a perfect world, Laika would be the most popular band in the world. Would you expect anything less from a genius like Guy Fixsen? For those of you who haven't heard this band- they have a very exotic sound. Vocalist Margaret Fiedler's velvety almost spoken word-like voice is the perfect compliment to Fixsen's rhythmic exotic syncopations. These songs would work great as instrumentals for the most part, but Fiedler takes them to another level not only vocally, but with her clever and unique lyrics. Laika have currently released 3 studio records all of which are superb. This record is a nice addition because the remixes of familiar songs don't sound so familiar after all and there are some unreleased tracks. For all their knob twiddling and programming expertise, Laika is definitely a band of superior musicians as well as -witnessed by their live performance. What else can I say - Laika are truly a band to be treasured.
