iTunes Review

Retreating from the multimedia panorama of Rings Around the World, Phantom Power was introduced with a pastoral cover design by longtime art director Pete Fowler to signal an earthbound direction for the group. Opening the album is “Hello Sunshine,” possibly the most grounded piece SFA has ever recorded. Marked by lazy tempos, sunny California psychedelia, and washes of acoustic guitar and piano, much of Phantom Power feels like a gentle comedown after the sensory explosions of Rings Around the World. The band’s love for the Beach Boys has never shined stronger than it does on “Liberty Belle” and “Venus & Serena,” yet a sense of looming dread and political frustration edges in on “Out of Control” and “The Undefeated.” Though Phantom Power marks a resting point in the band’s career, the album also displays some of the band’s most ambitious moments to date, including the dark undulations of “The Piccolo Snare” and the astounding multi-part finale “Slow Life.”

Customer Reviews

Surprisingly VERY Good

When I bout Phantom Power by SFA I wasn't really sure what to expect. Many of the :30 samples had Flaming LIps-esque instrumentation with a more pungent and rough vocal but I liked the song Hello Sunshine so I decided to buy the disc anyway. So I begin playing the CD and I listened to Hello Sunshine and I thought, "Okay that was pretty good", but then Liberty Belle came on and I thought "wow these guys have amazing melodies" Even more so is how they work the harmonies and music together moving from fast tempo to a groovy rhythem, etc. Great Slide Guitar(I think) Throughout the album. The music really engulfs you and grabs your attention without being too hard and rodundant. I definately recomend this album for its great melodies and rhythem, It is very original and if you want to get into Super Furry Animals buy this CD.

It couldn't be better

This is simply as good as modern pop music gets. Resting point?! Rings Around the World was genius. This is even better. What's better than genius? I've never heard anything like it. You must buy this album. If you don't end up loving it, you don't love music. Simple as.

Biography

Formed: 1993 in Cardiff, South Glamorgan, Wales

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Super Furry Animals were one of the first post-alternative bands, fusing together a number of disparate musical genres — including power pop, punk rock, techno, and progressive rock — creating a shimmering, melodic, irreverent, and willfully artsy rock & roll. As one of the leading bands of the mid-'90s Welsh movement, they were already tagged as outsiders by their tendency to sing entire songs in their native tongue, but their very approach was unique, full of both whimsy and left-wing...
