Love Kraft is immense in scope, with more than half its 12 tracks featuring swooning string arrangements (courtesy of unofficial Furry and sometime High Llama, Sean OHagan), as well the odd appearance from a 100-strong mixed voice Catalan choir. Strangely though, for a record thats ended up so large, the initial "concept" was deliberately scaled back by producer Mario Caldato (Beastie Boys and the guy who mixed Phantom Power).
Love Kraft is nothing if not a sophisticated piece of work. As the seventh and ultimate (but not as in last) Super Furry Animals album, it is the sound of them growing up, with not a tank, yeti or inflatable bear in sight.
The single, "Lazer Beam", is something of a red herring--an upbeat, funky number that sees frontman Gruff Rhys unveil his "radical new vision", which appealingly, includes the pledge "no more romantic comedies!" While the pace is generally slow, however, this is an album peppered with gems. Aliens land on the glorious "Psyclone!", which uses strings from guesting High Llamas man Sean OHagan to excellent effect, while the languid "Frequency" is comprised of lyrics written in what frontman Gruff Rhys refers to as "Blairspeak". Rhys gives up the microphone, however, for what turns out to be two album highlights: "Atomic Lust", which sees drummer Daf Ieuwan cooing "Lets get our shit together" over sudden explosions of guitar and pounded, one-note piano; and guitarist Bunfs goofy, comical "Back On A Roll". --Louis Pattison
