6/10 Phil Staff review, 28 January 2007
The new Stereolab LP is in and it's called Sound Dust. After extensive playing (about 6-7 times, cos I really wanted to like this) I can confirm that it's decidedly average. The single was a cracker, but they could do better I reckon. Opens nicely with the 1st track and stays pretty good but about half way through you forget it's on and it becomes a little bit non existent. It's not a bad record at all though, don't get me wrong, and if it was a debut LP by some unknown band it would probably be heralded as genius but I don't know..... you just expect better sometimes and maybe that's not fair?? Make your own mind up anyway. One to be French to.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 21st July 2015

"Sound Dust" is a great title. The sprawling experimentation of its predecessor, "Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night" signaled a change in the Stereolab sound. The only recognisable sounds left were the distinctive voice of Latitia Sadier and the occasional interplay between female vocalists. There was far more studio trickery and that is the main feature of "Sound Dust".

Take "Captain Easychord" for example - it starts with a Beatles-style piano stomp, think "Lovely Rita". Sounds drop in and out throughout, pedal steel, trumpets. The editing is purposefully clunky, a bit like a child's book that's been sellotaped back together after being ripped to bits. There are no more droning analogue synths. The music changes, takes sharp turns. "'Space Moth" flits from spooky '60s library music to a Jim O'Rourke style loop of weirdness. You used to be able to lie back and listen to a Stereolab album, this is all over the place and makes you want to stand up, sit down, stand up, lie down, run, walk and sit down. It's not only different for Stereolab, it's just different. Still, I'd rather listen to this than a lot of other tosh that's around.
