5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing in wales by about a billion miles, 6 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Phantom Power (Audio CD)
WOW!!!! Today I bought The Super Furry Animals sixth LP Phantom Power. As a 12 year old Flaming Lips fan I thought I'd like to try the album. I was wary after 2001's Rings Around The World (the vocoder is a bad instrument) But this LP is a space rock prog pop psychedelic masterpiece. I was attracted to it by the Golden Retriever single (thanks to my dog) And so forked out £price on a fantastically packaged, beautiful collection of Lips-alike music. All weird lyrics about talking turtles named after tennis players, women who turn into dogs. Brazillian street gangs fathered by a blind owl and a load of lying robots created by a corrupt scientist (why can't anyone else have lyrics like these) Plus the brilliant dreamy guitarwork and nice passages of Orbital style techno (but softer and trippier)
Now why aren't the band huge? (sure the fact that Americans are dominating us and that anyone else fails is major) but also its the tendency to drive around in a decomissioned purple tank, making albums of 'ska-techno metalrock' (in their words) and recording a lo-fi LP made purely in Welsh appeals to merely my Chemistry teacher and a couple in Llanelli named Bob and Jane may be a reason but the middle slot at Glastonbury, the charming yeti outfits and the barrage of festival dates may spell the end of their tomfoolery and the start of world domination as it should be. If the Gruff and co continue to make albums of this calibre with their crazy, visually fresh, worldview then surely they'll be more popular than Tom Jones. Check out Venus and Serana, Out Of Control, Piccolo Snare, Golden Retriever, Sex, War And Robots ah hell just buy the album confident it will change your mind and world forever. RULE ON SUPER FURRY ANIMALS WE LOVE YOU!!!
