First and foremost?

"A good introduction to Stereolab. This is one of their most consistent albums, many of the songs following the extremely basic Stereolab formulae for songs: a guitar strumming one or two chords, a simple drumbeat, organ interference, and beautiful vocals (sometimes complete with la-las, etc.) While many of the songs on the album follow this formulae, they do so in a more compact, muffled way compared to their following albums. Standouts include "Super Electric" and "The light that will cease to fail.""

"Although I am missing a couple of Stereolab albums, this is in my top three, along with "Aluminum Tunes Vol.1" and "Emperor Tomato Ketchup". I'm not sure why fans don't talk about it more. Perhaps because they have so many albums to choose from? If you're just getting into Stereolab, I suggest you get this one sooner than later."
Great tunes

"This is a really useful collection of early stereolab singles/b-sides. The songs here are a perfect example of how stereolab sounded when they first started as a band. From listening to this release you can see how the band have progressed. However, the songs here are classics, they may not be the better of stereolab songs written but they do have lovely tunes. I think for stereolab fans there are quite a deal of emotion attached to these recordings and that's why we love them so much. 'Brittle' 'Super electric' 'The light that will cease to fail' and 'Changer' are all adoreable songs. My only critcial point of the album is the 80's snare sound of 'the light that will cease to fail'! Get this collection if you are intrested in how stereolab once sounded, it's great stuff."
