516. Stereolab - dots and loops

originally uploaded by jrd550.
Stereolab albums seem incredibly difficult to write because it seems like there is soooo much going on. Soundclips, layers, harmonies upon harmonies, accelerated beats cut into vocal loops. At times I think there is too much going on, making the song overwhelming. Also the french pop/bossa nova/electro lounge combo can get dull, and it seemed that with each album that's where they were going more and more... on this album they push that direction a bit too much, they could have used some of the rawness from 'Transient' and less polish.
