Seems to me that they hit during 95/96 - the ETK era? I get the impression that there was a buzz about them at the time. Is it fair to say that it is similar to what Arcade Fire has achieved in the last few year?

Perhaps if they had tried a more commerical route, they could have capitalized on this momentary popularity.

I wonder what a purely commercial 'sell out' album by Stereolab would sound like? Maybe not that bad. They should get back together and try it.

I agree with others who say that Arcade Fire is an odd comparison. I don't think they are comparable in almost any way. Especially when it comes to:
a) commercial success
b) respect among peers
c) influential
d) originality
e) commercial airplay
f) media respect
On each of these, the bands are miles apart
