9/10 Kitchenperson Customer review, 17th November 2013
Look at that artwork! You know when you see an album cover so great you immediately know if the album doesn't sound as good as it looks you'll be a little bit heartbroken? Well fear not this album sounds even better than the excellent artwork would lead you to believe.
Yeah they do sound like Stereolab but anyone with a good set of working ears will know that is not a bad thing at all. Excellent playing, gorgeous melodies and songs which will get stuck in your head when you try to sleep at night (in a good way) This is the most straight forward Electrelane album (all the songs are under 7 minutes for a start) but it's also the most focused and the one that shows all the potential of their other albums come to life. Of course they split soon after making us miss them even more but hey if Dodgy, Cast and Kula Shaker can plop out new albums these guys will surely realise people out there want another album from them.
So this has been out of print for a while and I recently watched a copy go on eBay for over £70. I'm so delighted it's coming out on vinyl again as we can all agree vinyl really is as cool as we all think it is. Hopefully one day every single album will be re-released on vinyl (ok maybe apart from Neil Young's Time Fades Away) The recent reissues of Boards of Canada albums on vinyl has made a lot of people happy and people can no longer get ripped off on Ebay or Discogs (If you're one of those people who needs to have an original copy then good luck to you) Long may these vinyl reissues continue (Super Furry Animals, Broadcast and Clientele albums next please!)
This is one of the finest indie albums of the last few years and deserves to be in your collection next to your Stereolab albums (well unless you have your records in alphabetical order like me in which case they'll be next to ELO)
