The Groop get increasingly sophisticated . . .,

This review is from: Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night (Audio CD)
Once again we are offered a new Stereolab album; once again, it revels in it's curious mixture of the sublimely alternative and the cheesily cheerful. You think you are listening to Burt Barcarach one moment, and some kind of bubbling, gurgling Music-from-Mars the next. What they've added for this particular outing is the trumpet part, which would make this the Groop's "calypso" album. The music is richly baroque, and deeply layered, and my only criticism of it would be the riffing which each song has a tendency to lurch into. That said, if you're looking for a sparky album brimming with ideas, and you don't mind a bit of Avant-Garde moog with your pop, give this one a spin.
