Stereolab: Margerine Eclipse
Buy! - (Elektra)
The first full-length album from this British band after the death of guitarist/vocalist Mary Hansen isn’t markedly different from other recent Stereolab albums. The same musical hallmarks are there: Airy pop melodies, hypnotic rhythms, jazzy lounge-flavored textures colored with retro-futuristic analog synthesizers, and Laetitia Sadier’s light, dreamy vocals (though with Hansen gone, Sadier provides her own backing vocals this time). Still, the songs sound like one of their strongest batch in a while. 1/26/2004 - Don Yates
