Where to start? Or what's best to get anyway.
Stereolab have 2 distinct periods: their Neu-inspired stuff and their more easy-listening/tropicalia influenced stuff. This album kind-of straddles both. It's their Bringing It All Back Home if you like.
Not my favourite though. Dots and Loops is a masterpiece but takes a long time to get into as it is fairly bereft of tunes. Margerine Eclipse is also surprisingly brilliant for a band so far into their career.
Or you could just get the best-of like the other guy said.
Peng! is the only one worth listening to.
Is probably the best of their earlier scratchier Neu! stuff, it's my fav.
I think it's pretty much perfect.
definatley: refried ectoplasm vol.2, transient random-noise bursts with announcements & mars audiac quintet....
