A very good album. But the best? Nah, don't think so. This is really Stereolab at their mellowest and most lounge-bandish.

Well, Schoenberg once said "idea transcends style" so I think that knocking it for it's "loungey style" is not completely fair to the music. I personally like the style, but I also think it's Stereolab at one of their most subtle, cinematic, and compositionally (is that a real word?) sound points. I don't think other albums compare with the way that SD builds and falls and develops. But that's me.

I totally agree with calapia.
It is by far their most sophisticated work.
And that included the b-sides of CAPTAIN EASYCHORD.
"Loungey" is a totally inappropriate description.
I remembered, when I heard it the first time, that I could not believe they had bettered even COBRA (which probably remains my personal favorite)!
