Best of Stereolab

Now I am sure some people must have done this before but I can't find it. Anyway, it might have changed.

So, my thought was to put together a single CD that was (to me) the best of Stereolab. It doesn't have to be a hit single or even the best track on the album. I worked hard to limit myself to under 88 minutes (about the peak of a CD) so this is what I came up with.

1. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements\09 - Stereolab - Crest.mp3
2. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup\07 - Stereolab - The Noise Of Carpet.mp3
3. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Switched On\01 - Stereolab - Super-Electric.mp3
4. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Mars Audiac Quintet\08 - Stereolab - Nihilist Assault Group.mp3
5. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Mars Audiac Quintet\01 - Stereolab - Three-Dee Melodie.mp3
6. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Aluminum Tunes- Switched On, Vol. 3\02 - Stereolab - Cadriopo.mp3
7. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Cobra & Phases Play Voltage in the Milky Night [Import Bonus Tracks]\06 - Stereolab - Infinity Girl.mp3
8. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - The First Of The Microbe Hunters\07 - Stereolab - Retrograde Mirror Form.mp3
9. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Sound-Dust\10 - Stereolab - Nothing To Do With Me.mp3
10. K:\albums\Stereolab\OSCILLONS FROM THE ANTI-SUN 1\05 - With Friends Like These.mp3
11. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Dots And Loops\09 - Stereolab - Ticker-Tape Of The Unconscious.mp3
12. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Sound-Dust\09 - Stereolab - Nought More Terrific Than Man.mp3
13. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup\08 - Stereolab - Tomorrow Is Already Here.mp3
14. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Aluminum Tunes- Switched On, Vol. 3\07 - Stereolab - Seeperbold.mp3
15. K:\albums\Stereolab\Stereolab - Dots And Loops\06 - Stereolab - Rainbo Conversation.mp3
16. K:\albums\Stereolab\OSCILLONS FROM THE ANTI-SUN 2\02 - Young Lungs.mp3
17. K:\albums\Stereolab\Refried Ectoplasm- Switched On, Vol. 2\13 Tempter.mp3


I tried to cover as many albums as possible without tokens (La Demeure was cut despite being their best and only post Mary track I had in the pool). I missed a lot of the early days too. It was hard to cull tracks from the Big 5 but I did my best. I don't have much in the way of obscure eps but I am liking ABC at the moment.

Any thoughts, alternate lists?

Re: Best of Stereolab

Well, I am please this thread has elicited such thoughtful responses. I might have thought a Stereolab forum would have been the place to discuss this but...

I think this would work best as a thematic set:

CD1: early drone rock material
'Super 45' (1991) through 'Mars Audiac Quintet' (1994)

CD2: eclecticism & Chicago influence
'Music for the Amorphous...' (1995) through 'Sound Dust' (2001)

CD3: post-Mary Hansen
'Instant O...' (2003) through 'Not Music' (2008)

Set your iTunes to fill each playlist with 90 minutes of randomly selected tracks, and it'll work great.

Re: Best of Stereolab

Thanks for the mix. I am enjoying it. It is different to mine. Some good insights into other albums.
