Several great pop tracks, exquisitely arranged, make for pleasurable, relaxing listening. However, a few tracks sound like filler to me.Published on May 25, 2010 by F. A. Lage Filho
Constantly on the cusp of brilliance, this beautifully bubbling electro-pop rests quite comfortably in an impressive discography.Published on October 3, 2009 by IRate
First, this is a fantastic album. I always find something new every time I listen to it...and I've listened to it a lot. Read morePublished on April 24, 2008 by Amazon Customer
Excellent Stereolab album, "Metronomic Underground" is a great opener. Stand out tracks in this one are "Spark Plug" and "The Noise of Carpet". Read morePublished on December 27, 2007 by A. Pardo
