COME AND PLAY is one of their absolute best.
The album is jam-packed with beauty. I don't skip any track when I listen to it, because it is like a journey.
But I understand that not anyone can endure such an intense listening session.
VELVET WATER (obviously) is another favorite of mine.
I think that even THE SPIRACLES is beautiful and it really moves me.

I think I have a little too low tolerance for kitsch, which is why I skip some of the tracks on the album. I guess the NME critic was very very mean spirited, but he actually had a point that Stereolab on this album had completely absorbed the kind of musical influences that most self-respecting bands would shy away from. I mean, "Caleidoscopic Gaze", WTF, it's so blatantly corny and awkward! Can't listen to it anymore without being embarrassed.
