'fab four suture' is another fantastic Stereolab compilation, one that's related to earlier compilations ('Switched On', 'Refried Ectoplasm', the 'Oscillations' box-set)taking in the 'Lab's singles releases in 2005 (7" joys for those who still care). It is in effect a new Stereolab album for people like me who don't have the singles and like many Stereolab releases, it's utterly fantastic and a joy to have them around still. Stereolab are one of those prolific alternative acts like The Fall, Sonic Youth, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Julian Cope, Low, Yo La Tengo & The Flaming Lips who not only have a sizeable back catalogue, but a consistently great one.

The central songwriter pair Laetia Sadier & Tim Gane are still present alongside long-term member Andy Ramsey - the newer members regenerating the band. Let's face it, Stereolab are Stereolab and you can't really go wrong, a blend of chanson, electronica, krautrock, pop with the kind of complexity that becomes apparent to the attentive listener. It's all fantastic...it's all Stereolab, though personal highlights include the squelchy krautfunk of 'Interlock', the gorgeous 'Visionary Road Maps' & the alien-pop stomp 'I Was a Sunny Rainphase', one of those parallel world hits like 'French Disko', 'Ping Pong' & 'The Noise of Carpet.' I don't think Stereolab have really made a bad record, though unlike many I think their strongest releases were from 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' onwards - 'fab four suture' certainly keeps to that standard. & what great artwork! The perfect compilation as Spring shifts to Summer - Stereolab a band whose music reminds you how great it feels to be alive: heartbeats and breathing, bleeps and pop-swoons. Worth for the price of entry alone for the song-titles 'Excursions into "oh, a-oh" and 'Kyberneticka Babicka.'

This is a superb collection that should re-ignite the imagination of those who drifted off during the 'Cobra Phases' album era. It demands repeated listens but rewards in spades. Destined to reach those parts that only 'Peng!' could reach. They are the new originals. They are Stereolab.

The Lab release another gem.

Being a long time fan the danger is taking their inovation for granted, as something we come to expect once a year.
This album itself stands alone as a great selection of their recent duophonic singles.
Stand out tracks for me have to be "Interlock" ,"Vodiak" and "Get A Shot Of The Refrigerator".
It's all good !

It's been suggested by other reviews (here, and elsewhere) that Fab Four Suture does not present the listener with a new evolution of the Stereolab sound that we have come to expect with each new LP. I suppose this is true, pretty much (the Philip Glass tribute Kybernetika Babickta being the obvious exception), but this album is yet another finely crafted masterpiece. It's upbeat & positive with strong melodies and plenty of twists, but my personal fave is "Excursions into oh-a-oh", the throbbing & pulsing outro offering a glimpse of the low-fi Groop of old. This illustrates very well how th'Lab have matured over the years. After one and a half decades and between 11 and 16 albums (depending on how you count them), the word "matured" sums up the 2006 vintage Stereolab very well. Hardly punk rock, but reason to be proud.

I only became a follower of the groop little more than a year ago. I'm constantly amazed at how different they are to most "current" bands both in terms of the style and quality of their music. I didn't warm to this album instantly but it's such a grower and just seems to get better each time I listen to it. The only problem is that a lot of your music collection will sound, quite frankly, plain old pants after this.
