You'd think it was SACD or DVD-Audio

"Many of Yello's CD's sound simply fantastic and Baby is no exception. If you are already a Yello fan, Pick this up - no questions asked - it's absolutely worth $40 (the going price as I wrote this)

It's interesting to me that every Yello Album(cd?) seems to have a sonic theme to it. Baby is pretty consistant throughout, yet much different than most of thier other work. It's easy to think of it as a few revisions past the 'one second' album, much of what made that one great is here.

Homage to the Mountain is an instrumental track, and it's just fantastic, so clear, so dynamic - you'd think it was a SACD, or DVD-Audio. It alone would be worth having the CD for...
(I will stipulate that my enjoyment of most yello CD's has come through a decent stereo system at pretty good volumes. This is a CD that will not receive justice if it's played through a boom box (much in the way many sci-fi films would not be as exiting on a 13" TV vs a big screen))

One of my favorates was always the song Blender partially because of the music and the way the drums kick in, but also because of the downright goofy lyrics. (about a blender salesperson who sells door to door, and the blender also happens to convert in to the worlds most powerfull vacuume cleaner)

Anyhow I suppose I've written enough. Can't go wrong with this one or pretty much any of the CD's starting with 'one second' The first 3 CD's were good too but they had more of a home grown low-fidelity sound to them, so the music on them doesn't shine through like it does on the CD's starting with one second. Though I read on that they've remastered and re-released the originals. So those too might be sonically worthwhile now too.

Ohh Baby Baby...

"A true Yello classic. Includes solid hits like Rubberbandman, Jungle Bill, Who's Gone, as well as the quick and decidedly Latin On the Run which also appeared in the movie Ford Fairlane. But it is another track that is the real crowd puller - Blender - which seems to be composed with the objective of putting the dynamics and base register of loudspeakers to the test. The base is unbelievably deep and snappy and current hits like the Warp Brother's Phat Base and We will Survive are nothing but fiddly baroqe in comparison. Homage to the Mountain is short but intense, and as one Swedish Yello fan put it: "turn Homage to the Mountain on really loud and I guarantee that no one will leave the room unaffected!" One track is missing from this excellent collection though, namely Unbelievable, released 1990, which was specificially written as the main theme to the motion picture Ford Fairlane. Had Unbelievable been included this album would have scored a clean five stars and entered the all time top 10 chart of outstanding albums! Possibly Electra or TCF kept exclusive publishing rights to the track (it is sad when business goes before pleasure). Scoring four stars Baby is still a top record and if you enjoy experimental music that goes a step further from `A Teen' and main stream and like to feel a heavy base, then Baby can not go wrong!// J.
