This review is from: DOTS & LOOPS (Audio CD)
Many bands produce music that, once you've heard one track, you've heard it all. Not so with Stereolab. This does mean that it's likely you won't always love everything they do. The positive side of their eclectic and adventurous musical exploration is that it means they sometimes unearth a diamond.
This album is perhaps not an even and easy ride throughout because it covers so much territory - but it's all be worth it for the first two tracks alone: Brakhage is a kind of psychedelicized krautrock trance-out, propelled by superb drummimg (a strong feature of much recent Stereolab). And Miss Modular is a cheesy-pop anthem - with fantistically tough and phat brass, bubbling with a knowing naievete.
Open minded hungry ears will find a lot to chew over and many and varied spicy flavours to enjoy on this, one of Stereolab's widest ranging albums.
