"This is Stereolab's third 'Odds and Sods' compilation. Comparing this to Switched On from some five years back, it's a very different listening experience, though certainly no less enjoyable. Plus, they keep growing in size -- Refried Extoplasm was twice as long as Switched On, and Aluminum Tunes is three times as huge. Recorded between 1994 and 1997, Aluminum Tunes is the companion piece to Stereolab's two most popular records, Mars Audiac Quartet and Emperor Tomato Ketchup. The tunes were gathered from over twenty diverse releases, ranging from split 7" singles, tour singles, compilation tracks, a 12" remix, a bonus CD, and the entirety of the acclaimed EP, Music For the Amorphous Body Study Center. The reference points are the same as ever, yet more perfectly integrated -- mood music, muzak and bubblegum pop, soundtrack sounds and orchestral jazz, all layered with analogue synth sounds and an understanding of minimalist that betrays the influence of Kraut-rock bands."
