Dark Days/Light Years
What can I say but this is the ninth studio album by the Super Furrys'
and they are back to their playfull and experiment best,the opening track "Crazy Naked Girls"
is a fuzzy guitar driven insane and multi paced monster of a jam derived from being on tour with The American Band Dead Meadow which you will hear from the riffedge along with the Furrys wailing multilayer harmonies similar to the ones they did on the track The Teacher off 1997's Guerilla album, funnily enough This album is reminicient of Guerilla in it's uptempo hynotical experimentalism and sounds effortless despite the great depth of detail and hard work clearly worked into this album, but thats nothing new to the Furry's This album just floats along organically and you are treated to a no holds barred none musical style non audio or musical genre predjudice! This album works on many levels from the 1st listen to your 100th It's easy to get into from the off and after more listens behind their usual catchy harmonie layered melodies, you will begin to unravel the tapestry of rich sounds layered amongst tracks also Songs like Inaugrial Trams really stick in your head but it's a nice vibe to have replaying in there.I honestly think that every song on this album could be a single while obviously cutting down the longer tracks it really is all Killer and no Filler and to get that from the Furrys is 110% perfection as all of their albums are great listens too but the only one I would have ever have given a 7/10 for would have been Love Kraft due to a lack of Gruff Rhys lead vocals and melodies. I think that SFA deserved to have had the popularity and mega success of the likes of oasis and U2 etc because of their sheer creative Sgt Pepper like brilliance without sacfricing great songs and melodies in conjunction to the far-out musical journeys,not unlike Pinkfloyd or Radiohead but Pumped by a Beatles/Beach boys Heart. BUY LISTEN AND ENJOY. Dark Days this most certainly is not for Cardiff's Phycadelic pop Lunatics.
