    Yello - Stella This is a crystal-clear vinyl pressing. That pristine Yello production shines through with all the punch and clarity as one would hope. Heard Stella for the first time as a teenager, back in the early nineties, on a cassette tape and it felt out of this world, even though the album had been released almost ten years before that. Nothing else sounds like Yello, it's still as out of this world as it was then, perhaps even more so now that one gets to appreciate it from a different point of view with all the past decades of music behind. A brilliant record.

      This is an example of how Yello did some underground sounds that became mainstream with their mega-secret influence on other people.
      This band is a mix of pure insolent snobism and classy avant-gardism. Their purposes deal with anarchist pop delirium attempts.
      "Let me cry" sounds like Young Gods "Only heaven" and "Skinflowers" or like Skinny Puppy's "Hospital waste"
      "Domingo" announces his future (involuntary) rip-off "Broken" by Nine Inch Nails (excessive guitar / synth layers). All theses artists never quoted Yello's influence, but it can be !
      "Oh yeah" is a precursor of powerful dance as well as Mr Oizo's records
      "Desert inn" is a funky electronic rock song that can be linked with Michael Jackson as well as Cabaret Voltaire material.
      "Angel no" is an excellent song, but the voice is awful. This is an excellent record, and with excellent hits as Desire and Vicious Games !

        And just to add on to the two previous reviewers, I also feel Yello have always created a unique vision not only in musical craftsmanship, but in lyrics too. Their stories are hilarious, outrageous, dark or just plain silly and playful, intertwined with the music to create a self-contained, complete experience.

          Ditto previous reviewer...

          Came back this album, after 20 odd years; replacing 'lost music'.
          Should I revisit this album?
          Hell Yeah (Oh Yeah!!)
          It's 80s electronica, surely it will have dated badly??
          Hell No!!
          Sounds as good as did all those years ago, totally fresh.
          Could be a manual for creating modern dance music, expecpt that there's about a 1000 times more crammed into it
          Yello pre-empted the 'dance music' explosion of the late 80s, and rightly got the recognition and rewards they were undoubtedly due when the 'boom' arrived.
          A tremendous record....
