It is difficult to find words that define Stereolab, especially when writing any kind of review that will make them honor so special and spectacular musical group.

Appear in my mind three words, DELECTABLE SOUND PLEASANT, in my very personal opinion, Stereolab has an impeccable career, so prolific, brilliant, creative and full of hits accurate facts and good taste with an incomparable genius, a musical style hard to categorize, you can not place labels, and I like a lot.

"Not Music" is a material recorded in 2008, during the study sessions of "Chemical Chords", I'll never understand why this album came out not at that time, I respect their decision, but what really matters is that they published, Stereolab is one of the few bands that always fascinates you, I am deeply amazed and entranced by this album at times sounds like Stereolab early work, in other tracks we find new things.

For me it would be very difficult to pass the time and not having a new Stereolab album to buy, as they looked out the idea of separation of the group, so this album is as fallen from heaven, and also grabbed me by surprise.

Lætitia Sadier & Tim Gane (and the other members of Stereolab) are incredibly imaginative, have a hook that gets you to not let you go anymore, of course we are the icing on a celestial perch called Stereolab, sounds incredible change in the tempo of the music, is like an elastic sound and self-energy, vibrant and bright, keyboards, amazing, delicious vocals, awesome, colorful, retro futurism, with touches of jazz, avant pop and soul, hypnotic pop bricolage from Krautrock, lounge, and psychedelia, fussing with a distinctive sound, and everything made in the lyrics of rock, are like a big burst of multicolored jets caressing my mind and my ears.

1 Review? Are you kidding?

This is my favorite band of the 90's and possible favorite band of the 00's. I have their entire discography, and they just might have bowed out with their best yet. It's crazy good, almost like they found their perfect sound (like The Black Keys did with "El Camino") with a blend of the 60's, space lounge, Bacharach, french girl kitsch, and a modern jazzy touch to top it all off. I hope they're not gone forever, but they've left us so much to treasure...

Stereolab is one of those rare bands that developed a sound that's so unique and good that it takes a while for your brain to make sense of what's happening… before you can decide if you actually like the music or not. I happen to love that kind of thing. Where did ESG or Talking Heads or Black Moth Super Rainbow find their sound? It's like no one else. So, I love Stereolab for finding such a distinct and unique form that is instantly recognizable and beautiful and odd and silly all at the same time.
I haven't bought all their albums or heard all their songs, so I don't know where "Not Music" should sit in a ranking. Also, I started listening to them about 20 years ago (!?), so I'm probably a different person from when I first heard the groop. But, I really, really like this one. Maybe it doesn't have the newness of Peng! or Emperor Tomato Ketchup, but it feels to me more lively than First of the Microbe Hunters and Sound-Dust (which I like plenty, but there's an empty space in the songs where Mary Hansen's voice is missing).
For a Stereolab album, it's pretty good… but for a final (?) Stereolab album, it's some kind of wonderful.

For well over a decade, Stereolab's musical mix of lounge, pop, retro, alternative, slight French dada and moog have been confusing the occasional paid music critics alike. Up until a half of Emperor Tomato Ketchup, the old `Lab handle was alternative 90's rock with small lounge/moog influences stuffed in the background; guitars rhythmically and numbingly strum away while tweaking keyboards dance about here and there on either channel like an ELO track (shout outs to Richard Tandy and his influence!!). Now, it's pretty much the other way around, hence more confusion...in a good way. If the group would have stayed in that 90's numbing guitar sound, they'd probably been relegated to Spin's One Hit Wonder special issues.

The Lab officially flipped their sound with Dots & Loops in 1997 and straight on through to 2010's Not Music with various results. I got on board a little late with Dots & Loops, but once I heard it, I was hooked as it satisfied a personal curiosity of what was the next level of this Retro Lounge sound that was jumping around at the time; Squirrel Nut Zippers and Love Jones were carrying the US lounge revival banner with Combustible Edison a few steps ahead with a more progressive and utopian tone. However, I was much more curious to see and hear how much this lounge influence would carry on without the fad and campiness that was now clogging the pipes and, as it turned out, Stereolab were one of the very few who took the ball and left this blockage behind.

When Not Music arrived into my ears, stereo and mp3 player, I was still shuffling through 2008's Chemical Chords. One of the many Lab pleasures is that their `sound scapes' blends into each track and CD.
