Sublime - one of the 'Lab's best.,
This review is from: Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night (Audio CD)
Some say that Stereolab always sound the same - they are very wrong. The early albums are far more primitive. The same spirit may inform throughout, but they've grown ever more refined in their dark arts.
This album is fantastic - superbly subtle rhythmically, deeply layered, with obscure poetical-philosophy in the lyrics. Trance inducing cosmic riffs (free design and milky night - yes please!) - krautrock meets bossa - both artful and naieve, joyous and darkly brooding.
If you like music that dares to tread it's own path, yet conjures up a whole world of influences and flavours, and still retains a distinctive taste all of it's own, then come play in the milky night.
