My Favorite Stereolab album! Amazing production, vocals, and lyrics. "Cybele's Reverie" is one of my favorite songs of all time, although the rest of the album has top notch quality as well! However, I would recommend "Mars Aquatic Quintet" and "Dots and Loops", if this is your first Stereolab album.

CD release notes: It has great packaging, fantastic sound, and you can get it for $2-5, highly worth it.
