The song "Blue Nabou" started life as a piece of advertising music commissioned for the soft drink Orangina in France in This was developed into a track originally intended for inclusion on Stella , but was eventually used as a B-side instead.
The cover of the album was created by the Zurich artist Ernst Gamper, with whom Yello had been working since Gamper painted the picture of a face on a sheet of celluloid, which he then taped to the window of his studio overlooking Lake Zurich and photographed at sunset, with the setting sun shining through the unpainted eye to create a 'glowing eye' effect.
The CD inlay booklet featured a photograph of Blank and Meier standing by the same window, with the painting visible on the window between them. The album was generally well received at the time of its release by the UK music press. Record Mirror enthused, "This picks up where [ You Gotta Say Yes to Another Excess ] left off, taking its themes and mashing them up, pointing them in new, exciting directions An album of moods and atmospheres, it must be listened to at maximum volume in a very dark room.
Each haunting episode reeks of a sublime suspense with a liberal coating of electric eccentricity. Mellow moods are savaged by impassioned cries and discordant desires as humour seeps from vital pores.
Post-Fairlight, Yello are clever, sometimes too clever-clever, occasionally jarring as the montaging lays code upon codas. Reviewing all six reissued Yello albums in , Mojo stated that Stella "saw further refinements in sound [to You Gotta Say Yes to Another Excess ] and a more pronounced Euro-pop agenda, but however slick tracks like 'Oh Yeah' or 'Vicious Games' might be, it's never entirely comfortable listening". As well, Dieter Meier proves he's at his best vocally, whether it's the seamy side of life on 'Desert Inn' or an exaggerated leer for 'Koladi-ola'.
Both hit their peak on the same album, and Stella is a complete joy for fans of the vocal or production side of the group. An undated cassette tape found at Yello Office contained 14 tracks recorded for the Stella album. Many of the tracks are longer than the versions that eventually appeared on the album, and some of the songs have different titles. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
