Having waited impatiently since word first arrived of a new super furries album many moons ago I can safely say that it was worth it. From start to finish it has SFA classic written all over it. It would sound good to say that the real stand out track was probably laser beam, but, like all their work, the album as a whole is as great as its parts.
Lyrically there is the combination of catchy slogans, keen observation and nonsense, for example: "Sold you a dalmation, but the spots fell off." from the opening track Zoom!. This is layered above superb electric soundscapes which captivate and envelope the listener.
It is hard to pick out any track for special praise because they are all excellent. The only slight criticism (and I'm only saying it in order to remain balanced) is the fact that each band member sings which to me seems to be a bit contrived at times.
I have read in places that this could be the album to make the wider world stand up and listen, but somehow I doubt it. Not when none of their other fantastic albums manage to do this. However for those sensible enough to love the super furries this album is as good as anything before it.
