Awesome Debut!

"When Stereolab hit the scene in the early 1990's, the music world had been taken over by three billion Nirvana wanna-bes... interesting music took a backseat as alternative became mainstream and in the crossover lost a lot of its urgency and power. PENG!, Stereolab's debut album was like a breath of fresh air when released and it hinted at what was to come.. today it still rocks, rolls, and moves. There was and is nothing like it.Guitars, Farfisa, Moog, drums, drum machines and vocals combine in an almost wall-of-sound aural soundscape. Clanging guitars, Nico-esque vocal deliveries, sonic distorted keyboards, repetitive licks which revolve layer upon layer of trancelike sound, beautiful soft songs, fast pop workouts, and interesting lyrics are all some of the reasons I love this LP!Please get this record - or borrow a copy from a friend. Put on "Super Falling Star" first and tell me what you think... I have a feeling I know what you will think - It's great!"
Almost makes me wanna learn French!

"This is about the 7 year anniversary since I bought this album.I know the term "Island Favorite's" has been been beaten to the ground, but if I were stuck in Grenada with nothing but some a solar powered Boombox and some Coppertone, this CD would be in the player.This album undulates into one continuous pulsating moog, er, mood. I love "Perversion", with its trippy melody extending on forever. It reminds me of something by The Velvet Underground, like "What Goes On"; that repetitive driving instrumental sound.Gosh, I wish they never turned toward the atonal beep, beep, beep; and just maintained this full sound (let's leave that to Eno). Oh, well. I've still got Transient Random.., those collections with the identical cover image as Peng (but different colors); Hooked on Stereolab, and other early stuff.Thanks, guys, for making my island a little more groooovy. Think I'll dig some Spacemen 3 out of the sand."

"Grooving like '70s krautrock meets the Velvet Underground in a cafe in Paris, this debut album by Stereolab is one of their best. Droning and lo-fi, yet beautifully and joyfully dreamy. It's a must have for the casual and/or dedicated fan, and wouldn't be a bad CD to start with if you're new to Stereolab. The funny thing is that this was the last album by them I bought having gotten every other release in their catalog and it's become one of my favorites. It's got a charm and emotional resonance all it's own. What a strong debut album!"
