Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements
Released: May 1993
Stereolab had made brilliant songs before, but this, released in 1993, was their first brilliant album. The group was able to balance its mixture of droning noise, discreet melodies, and sound manipulation. The album made digestible Krautrock out of indie art-pop in a way that truly was innovative. Every track is fantastic, but "Jenny Ondioline" is unbelievably good.
