2012 release. "Mars Audiac Quintet saw Stereolab beginning to shed their experimental tendencies in favor of a post-modern space-age pop. The album exudes a sophisticated cool and catchiness that helped them gain new fans while straddling the line between their experimental-rock brethren and the ascending class of pre-millennial British pop. It's also the album that put them on the A-list of underground rock bands. Arguably the band's most accessible album, Mars Audiac Quintet not only features gentler textures than any of its predecessors, but also more upbeat and hooky songs such as 'Ping Pong' (the first Stereolab song to receive widespread video and alt radio airplay) and 'L'Enfer Des Formes,' not to mention groove-dominated tracks like 'Outer Accelerator' and 'Transona Five.'"
