Boomkat Product Review:
'Margerine Eclipse' is the first full album for Stereolab since 2001's 'Sound Dust' and is the first album from the band since the tragic death of Mary Hansen. An album full of lush keyboard tones, snapping drums, throbbing bass and multi-tracked vocals from Laetitia Sadier in superb form, the Stereolab hit! Check the gorgeous '...Sudden Stars' - an instant highlight, or Sean O'Hagan's keyboards adding sweetness and light, plus Mouse on Mars? mista Jan St. Werner bringing to life a couple of pieces. The whole album uses ingenious split stereo channel panning to great effect, so much so that it feels like your getting two albums for the price of one. An album to add to your already weighty S'lab collection and one that will hopefully take on an original character with repeated plays. Lovely.
