    From the Chemical Chords recording sessions, the tunes on Not Music have the same great production and artistic flavor. In places, the sounds broaden out a bit into new territory, but the overall effect still astounding. These guys remain the best kept "secret" in all of alternative music.

    The polished arrangements, alien harmonies and attention to detail that have characterised Stereolab output over the years are all present and to the usual high standard. [Nov 2010, p.60]

    It's heady stuff with plenty of detours and time changes.

    Though this showcases the group;'s customary modular wit, it doesn't give Laetitia Sadier much to work with tune-wise. [Dec 2010, p.106]
