4.0 out of 5 stars Just the negatives here, 8 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Songbook The Singles (Audio CD)
I am an absolutely MASSIVE SFA fan but I foresee that if I start writing about how great they are here I won't stop - so this review is just going to be about the disappointments in a bizarre Best Of.
i) Why's it not in chronological order? Generally I think this is a terrible idea for Greatest Hits compilations but it really would show just how much and how often the Super Furries have progressed, so I think it'd make sense to begin with the Britpop of Fuzzy Logic, work through the experimentation of Guerilla and finish with the lush strings of Rings Around The World and Phantom Power. It also means you could finish on the epic 'Slow Life', which would be a better closer than 'Blerwytirhwng?'.
ii) 'Blerwytihrhwng?'. Why? It's a pretty cool song and the ending is beautifully weird, if overstretched, but it was never really a single; just something from the B-sides album. 'Smokin'' should be there instead - it's on the DVD, after all - 'cos it was on the Ice Hockey Hair EP so has more of a mandate as a single. Better song too.
iii) 'The Man Don't Give A F***' is only included as a Radio Edit and not the full 22-minute live version I saw in Hammersmith. Shame, but I suppose it has to be that way for new fans picking up a Best Of. Which makes me reiterate the bizarre inclusion of 'Blerwytihrhwng?'.
I suppose that's kinda it. INCREDIBLE BAND, BRILLIANT ALBUM, GET IT. Don't stop there though - they're an albums band, so make sure you own them all! Especially Radiator and Rings Around The World.
