|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
The recording is among Stereolab's most groove-oriented efforts. There are experiments like the French-pop-flavoured Pack Yr Romantic Mind, but it's mostly a lovely, loud, decadent '90s rock record. The song titles reference obscure equipment, the sounds are made with arcane instruments, the repetitive guitar work is directly lifted from Michael Rother, and the cover image pledges devotion to vinyl (the musical obscurantist's medium of choice), but somehow the band never comes off as snobbish.
Remastered from the original 1/2" tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Tim Gane. Triple Vinyl. Heavy duty PVC sleeve. Bonus material includes alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes.
