Re: Dots and Loops is the best.

I'm not going to sling mud, but ETK is the most dated of all their records. Partly because it got so heavily played (relative to the others) but also because it was so much of its time. D&L is like nothing else--if Parsec is dated (and it isn't to me) it's because it was used for the VW debut.

I just feel ETK is the one album that was picked up by people who really don't like Stereolab and there are reasons--good and bad--for that. It is overrated, I think. I see it as the sometimes very good, sometimes off, quirky transitional record that gets over-praised. And the over-praising ruins it, at least for me.
