Super Furry Animals: Phantom Power
Buy! - (XL)
This Welsh band's sixth album shows them scaling back the fuller production of their previous release (2002's Rings Around the World) for a warmer, slightly more subdued take on their eclectic psych-pop sound befitting the somber themes of war and lost love that they're exploring here. Despite the often bleak subject matter, the band offers plenty of glimmers of hope amidst the gloom, and the songs are a typically strong batch, ranging from country-tinged ballads to fuzzy power-pop and even some menacing hard rock. 6/15/2003 - Don Yates
