First reissue of Stereolab's fifth studio album 1997! Their sound here had tightened up even more (read: less rock-ish) since Emperor Tomato Ketchup, probably influenced by the popularity of the downtempo scene at the time. "Miss Modular" was a pretty big single at the time and "Diagonals" was a beathead favorite. They even dabbled a little in drum and bass ("Parsec"). Double vinyl, recommended.
