I have been a die-hard Stereolab fan ever since they first appeared in 1992, and have bought every album as a matter of course. It's hard to review something which it has become second-nature to regard as obviously totally brilliant.
I have to admit, though, that the last few Stereolab albums have been a bit bland by comparison with their earlier work. In the category of true classics I would single out this album, "Emperor Tomato Ketchup". It's probably fair to say that after their experimental beginnings, this is where Stereolab really hit their stride. Just really great, catchy songs, with a philosophical twist. In other words: classic Stereolab.
