Stereolab Margerine Eclipse
- Words: Carleton Curtis
- Label: Elektra
Stereolab does a fantastic job of sounding like themselves-which is a very good thing. But as mom taught us, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Happily, this is the only knock on Margerine Eclipse-which contains Stereolab's most memorable songs to date. The most notable part of the band's ninth proper release is the absence of singer/guitarist Mary Hansen, who died tragically last year. Now I know Marge, not Mary, is short for Margaret-which closely resembles the word margerine-but methinks this album is dedicated to her. And what a fine coda it is.
