For just under 40 minutes, Stereolab bring us the latest offering of all new material.
This 7-track EP picks up some of the feel left over from the lastalbum, taking more liberty with jamming in the studio and less focus onwriting song-oriented tunes. It gets a bit repetitive from the firstminute with the 9 1/2 minute "Outer Bongolia," the rest of the trackscontinue with a brightness and prettiness, which is okay to listen to,but once again, Stereolab hasn't given anything I believe will begetting heavy rotation in my CD player. Thankfully, the price stickeris reasonable enough to justify getting it. Fans of older Lab stuff whohave been disappointed with the last few albums might want to refrainfrom purchasing this and being disappointed again. As one disgruntledold fan put it, "they've recorded the same album 3 times in a row now!"
