The Well Tempered Moog,
This review is from: Mars Audiac Quintet (Audio CD)
This is a fabulously accomplished album of music that evokes joy and a sense of wonder. The juxtaposition of uplifting music and searing commentary on 'Ping Pong' make it quite unlike any other kind of pop song. This kind of approach puts Stereolab in another league entirely. They're fabulously hooky and seriously intelligent at the same time.
The whole album shines with talent and enthusiasm. It's a shame that this edition seems to be without the extra disc that contained the extraordinary 'Ulan Bator' but this fact doesn't really diminish the overall impact.
If you like 'Stereolab' and haven't heard this yet don't hesitate. You must have it.
