Re: Dots and Loops is the best.

Absolutely. It is my all-time favorite album by anybody, although Cobra comes close (so similar and yet so different). D&L coheres better than any other album, and Refractions is its beautiful centerpiece (and its opening movement is Stereolab's finest four minutes). Contranatura, the opening Brackhage/Miss Modular pairing, Parsec, Rainbo Conversation, Ticker-Tape of the Unconscious--so much unbelievably great music, yet the whole of D and L is greater than the sum of its parts (unlike lesser Stereolab albums like Margerine Eclipse).

I think it is more summery than their other work, maybe because of the strong Brazilian influence.
