Just sat down to watch Phantom Power for the first time. If you have bought it, thinking it to be a collection of unrelated promo videos slung together, you may be pleasantly suprised.
The DVD is a magical trip into world of The Super Furries, with animations by Peter Fowler, preceeding each song. The journey begins inside a giant diarama, and in order to watch each video, you play musical roulette, and end up with a random track each time, (which is a great idea, as it makes you veiw the album in a different way).
The songs are accompanied by visceral animations, pictures and videos and kinda conjure up those kinds of images you get just before you fall asleep, and make the music much more enjoyable, as the two go together so well.
There is a lot of stuff on this dvd, as there are remixes of every song on the album, commentries and hidden features (I haven't found all of them yet!)
all in all, it's weird, fun, scary and lovely.
