Stereolab - Transient Random Noise - 2LP -
This is a 'new phase' album review. The title of the record sums its contents so perfectly so i'll keep this relatively brief. 'Tone Burst' is unsatisfactory. A groove is built up and worked upon. It goes on for several minutes. A brief insert of vocals - more groove. Is this an annoucement? It's not anything arriving. 'Our Trinitone Blast' is all random noise but with a great groove running underneath, lots of shouted vocals, lots of thrilling guitars. 'Pack Yr Romantic Mind' is totally gorgeous and points the way toward a Stereolab future soon to come where the guitars were much less prevailant. 'I'm Going Out Of My Way' and 'Golden Ball' repeat the sound of earlier Stereolab - lo-fi Velvet Underground guitars with an 'experimental' approach to song structure, shall we say. 'Pause' is the sound of the human voice, lyrical meaning irrelevant. It's beautiful, too.
'Jenny Ondioline', oh sweet eighteen minute long 'Jenny Ondioline'!! It's loud, long and thrilling, but should have closed the album rather than be placed where it was. 'Analogue Rock' is a successful experiment in guitar and electronic sound with a lyric 'All good things to come, all good things to come, will come, welcome' - repeated over and over. They make a virtue of repetition. 'Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements' overall shows signs of a very singular talent, shows other signs of sheer beauty and other signs that don't seem like signs at all. Nothing seems real but you want to carry on watching them grow.
