Re: Sound-Dust is truly the best

"objectively" is clearly a misnomer. Like I said above, there's no perfect Stereolab album in existence at all. One man's "complex" may be another man's "pretentious".

When I say SD is loungy, I mostly refer to the lightweight sound and evocation so apparent on this album, in terms of instrumentation, laid-back and sedate nature of pieces and the overall mood. Lounge influences are most blatantly apparent at tunes like "Baby Lulu", "Double Rocker" and "Naught More Terrific Than Man". Even without these tunes, clearly the album doesn't have the kind of verve and intensity apparent on ETK.
