Re: All killer, no filler

This'll be easy to get 10 killer tracks, but very difficult to choose which ones.

I'll do it tonight.

KB from FFS is genius. Fact!!!

Re: All killer, no filler

I've noticed throughout the years that a lot of people can't really seem to let go of the glory days of Stereolab. Things changed and so did the music. The talent remained and a lot of really solid music resulted. I think it's entertaining to discuss the highs, lows and everything in between, but shit, Hito. I can't really tell if you're trolling for personal amusement or genuinely interested in discussing music and it just comes across as sour and smug. In any case...

9 post-Mary greats I enjoy quite a bit:

Kyberneticka Babicka
Whisper Pitch
Visionary Road Maps
Magne Music (possibly the best)
Neon Beanbag
Ecstatic Static
Supah Jaianto
Delugeoisie
Aelita

Re: All killer, no filler

Margerine Eclipse and Instant O were excluded since these were mostly composed prior to Mary's unfortunate death.

Re: All killer, no filler

Thanks for doing a list meanchico. I will give it a go.

I did not know that Mary worked on those records (instant o and margerine). Does she perform on them?

Silver sands and Neon Beanbag are good. I can't compare them to the great songs from their past but they are decent. I do not have a problem with the 'jank jank' sound, knowing that CC and NE were all recorded around the same period. The Mary's void is very obvious and it is a huge reason why they haven't sounded as good as they used to.

You can say that I started expecting less from them after FFS (I love Kyberneticka Babicka though), but some of the songs on CC and NE fit my mood some time. I like the uplifting quality and straight-forwardness of it. They might be less subtle but they are also quite different.

I absolutely agree with you on SD being the last great album they made. But honestly, even in the lowest( in my opinion, FFS), the songs are still rather unique in their own ways and I can still get into some of them.

It could be my habit of listening to Stereolab that affects the way I look at their newer works. I usually mix them all up without worrying what album they are in, their post-Mary stuff make very nice addictions to the rest of their music.

But yea the last part of Aelita does sound like part of the Refraction in the Plasctic Pulse.



Intersting post.

Do you mean NE or ME or NM?

And thanks for the last point. Do you think it was deliberate?

Re: All killer, no filler

I just listened to Instant O again. It is actually quite good in parts. Cheers
