Ive finally gotten into stereolab..well sort of....Just purchased this album: TRANSIENT RANDOM NOISE BURSTS...

I like most of this album, but kinda prefer the slower type of music they do. Im not so into the "noisier" type of loud guitar songs, at least so far. Id like some reccomendations if anyone has some please......THANKS

I'd start with Emperor Tomato Ketchup, this is pretty much a critic favorite but justfully so. Its a great album.

"Transient..." is one of my favourites. Try "Mars Audiac Quartet". I second "Emperor..." too. For more mellow, "Dots and Loops" is quite pleasing to the ear.

Regards,

Martin.

Nah, I'd start w/ Mars Audiac Quintet.

In chronological order:

Switched On

Peng! -- these two are very guitar-based/VU-ish. Droney.

Space Age Bachelor Pad Music

Transient Random Noise Bursts w/ Announcements -- much more experimental than any other release. "Jenny Ondioline" is one of their classics

Mars Audiac Quintet -- the quintessential SLab. French lyrics, dreamy rhythms, strummed guitars.

Music For the Amorphous Body Center -- a great EP if you can find it

Refried Ectoplasm -- comp of early singles

Emperor Tomato Ketchup -- last really "organic" album. Some great songs

Dots and Loops - 1st of their really "computerized"/ProTools dominated releases. Somewhat uninsipred, I think. Very mellow.

Aluminum Tunes - a great comp. Great version of "New Orthophony" and includes the entire Amorphous Body Center EP

Cobra Phases group play voltage in the milky night - Another sterile, sequenced-to-death CD. Still, ya might like it.

The First of the Microbe Hunters - good EP. Actually sounds like people are playing for once.

Sound-Dust - Better than the previous two full lengths.
