3.0 out of 5 stars good songs, minimal production 14 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is not unlike SFA's welsh album Mwng, but if that album was stripped down then this one is completely naked. A couple of the tracks are just Gruff's voice and a drumbeat and the whole thing is only 30 minutes long.
The songs are good, but really this is little more than a demo. If you liked Mwng then you will like this (and it probably sounds better if you can speak welsh). If you prefer SFA's more polished albums then you might be better off waiting for their new release later in the spring.

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet tight package 20 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is only 29 minutes long, which is good so you can listen to it more than 48 times in one day. Although I have no idea what any of the songs mean, each one has a beautiful tight melody that most bands couldn't even approach, along with excellent song construction and production. I strongly reccomend this album, especially to people who enjoy the SFA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Godidog - Gruff ni'n mo'yn rhagor! 3 Mar 2005
By Brenig
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unwaith yn rhagor ma Gruff Rhys wedi creu campwaith, a hynny, medde fe, ar hast ac mewn brys mewn cyfnode recordio gwasgaredig (!) Wi wrth fy modd gyda'r albwm 'ma; digon o amrywiaeth ar hyd rhychwant gerddorol eang iawn sy'n ymestyn o synnau eitha peiriannol i arddull amrwd a gwych iawn. Ma traciau fel 'Ni yw y Byd' yn rili gafaelgar ac yn fiwsig i joio mas, tra bo traciau fel yr ail wneuthuriad o 'Chwarae'n Troi'n Chewerw' yn fath o beth allwch chi wrando arno fe yn y gwely. Ffantastic!
Gruff Rhys has done it again, you know what to expect by now don't you? My English friends didn't mind that the record is Welsh medium - one said that it was a much more organic experience to hear Gruff in his first language. Unique and great

5.0 out of 5 stars Gruff is a genius 19 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
We all know what to expect from Gruff and the Furries by now. Beautiful harmonies, uplifting instrumentals and lyrics from bizzare to thought provoking and sometimes moving. What Gruff does on his first solo album is showcase his truly beautiful voice and sonwriting ability. I have no idea what inspires him but he keeps coming back with these really haunting and soulful tunes. I actually found myself semi-singing along to one of the songs, even though its in Welsh!
He is a true hero of British music, constantly original and fuelled by an integrity that is dedicated to music, not money. This album, although short, is a real joy as you discover the hidden treasures throughout the album the more you listen.
