$65.00

Factory Sealed (New)

Remastered from the original tapes. Bonus disk of unreleased demos, outtakes and alternate mixes. 

AllMusic writer Heather Phares cites Emperor Tomato Ketchup as "Stereolab's greatest success to date”. In the US, the album was especially successful on college radio,  and by August 1997, the album had sold over 46,000 units in the country, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

On Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Stereolab experimented with composing songs around looped sounds instead of traditional riffs. Critic Tom Moon found the band's compositional approach reminiscent of hip hop and electronica music, with loops being layered into "richly textured collages"

Vinyl comes in bespoke gatefold sleeve with download card, housed inside a heavyweight clear PVC wallet. Fold-out poster insert with lyrics and sleevenotes from Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane.
