Super Furry Animals are eclectic, to say the least. Fusing together pop melodies, psychedelia, and art rock with an impish, punky fury, the band cover more ground on their debut album, Fuzzy Logic, than most indie bands do in their entire career. However, the album works better as a series of moments than as a collection, mainly due to their overreaching ambition. Each song floats by on irresistible, catchy vocal harmonies, while the music alternates between glitzy overdriven guitars and sighing, sweeping keyboard, guitar, and string backdrops. Over these lush sonic beds, lead vocalist Gruff sings lyrics that are either mystical, nonsensical, or bizarrely funny -- none of the songs make much literal sense, but that doesn't quite matter when the music is as free-spirited as this. The songs may start conventionally, but they'll be undercut by wild synthesizers and careening guitar solos, or off-kilter vocal melodies. Taken as individual moments -- as the singles "God! Show Me Magic" (relatively straight-ahead punk-pop), "Hometown Unicorn" (gorgeous psychedelia), and "Something 4 the Weekend" (which finds the middle ground between the first two singles) prove -- the music of Super Furry Animals is quite intoxicating, but when assembled together, they don't sustain momentum. However, the individual pleasures of each song become more apparent with each listen and Fuzzy Logic suggests that the group could blossom into something quite distinctive and utterly unique within a few albums.
“Fuzzy Logic” by Super Furry Animals (1996) bad vocals bad lyrics bad instrumentals bad composition bad arrangements excellent commercial appeal 1/5
Creation at their finest.
Super Furry Animals s'est lancé un défi des plus surpenants : constituer un album dont l'objet serait une compilation de cris d'animaux. Le morceau Frisbee lance les hostilités avec une chorale de macaques en colère. Mais le groupe ne s'arrête pas là; les animaux de la jungle sont vite remplacés par ceux de la savane, puis ceux de la ferme. Le projet se clôt sur un éternuement de lièvre et laisse derrière lui des oreilles enchantées par un spectacle auditif hors du commun.
Musik, die KEINER braucht. Hat man von dutzenden ähnlich uninspirierten englischen Bands bereits 1000 mal gehört. Trotz des schlechten Gesangs fühle ich mich überraschenderweise davon so wenig genervt, dass ich mehr als einen Punkt vergeben muss. Gnädige zwei.
I liked it!
From electronic textures to fuzzy, surfy rock-outs, this record is just an immense amount of fun. The Welsh have something really good going on, apparently. Love it.
Great album from a great band. A rock album at heart, but with elements of pop, psychedelic, glam, synth etc. all seamlessly woven through. Excellent songs with wonderful melodies, counter melodies, harmonies, and instrumentation. And solid production - all the instruments sound great and have well defined spaces within the mix. A refreshing alternative to the brit pop of the time, and still sounds good today.
Goddamm first album? Fuck me
Me gustó bastantito, intrumentaciones interesantes (la incorporación sorpresiva de los vientos en Fuzzy Birds muy chida y las cuerdas en varias otras canciones), variedad de ritmos, vibras blurianas. Gran arte furro. Mood: fuzzy logic more like furry logic XD
Me encantó, es asombroso, quizás al inicio la primera canción suena un poco extraña pero poco a poco te adaptas al sonido de todo el álbum, es asombroso.
i like the group name and album name. first song started quickly. its okay. the lyrics in the second song lol. i quite like the sound too. liking the third song, second beard mention lol. okay its over. i enjoyed this. it was quite interesting. there were some weird sounds here and there that i appreciated. decent chance i'll come back to it, but im glad i got to listen to it even if i dont. i definitely got more into it as it went on. fave tracks: fuzzy birds, if you dont want me to destroy you(!!!), mario man. didnt love: bad behaviour (last minute or so is so good but i hated the bad bad bad bad behaviour chanting). honestly im just gonna give this a five loll vocals are not annoying, they go perfectly with the music, the music is nice, changes up enough to keep me entertained, lyrics are good and fun, and when silly, consciously so, idk i ended up loving this.
Love love it!!!
Loved and was pleasantly surprised by the vast majority of it, I even vaguely recognized some of the hits. A pretty unique sounding 90s neo-psychedelic album with all kinds of diverse styles and vibes, yet maintained a very nice continuous thematic and musical flow. Idk much about this band, but going with my gut, 5 stars.
Welsh wonders. Sadly missed.
Cracking album, but nothing beats seeing them do 'The Man Don't Give A Fuck' live.
Superb. What an album.
This album has been a wonderful surprise! I did not have this band on my radar - maybe I’d heard the name some years ago - but it caught me from the very dirt minute. It is the type of psych I like, melodic, unpretentious, a little naive. I loved the beat, textures, chords and song structures; the voice is a perfect fit too. So 90s, so alive. I read somebody’s comment that said that the way how this album ends is the way how a joyful funeral would end , I happen to agree!
A perfect 90s album. Updated 60's sounds and feelings for a new time, with smart lyrics, and it's a lot of fun!
I heard this album before a while ago but forgot how great it is.
Weird and awesome, just how I like it.
Wow, nothing like getting off to a loud start! It was okay. Didn’t love it, didn’t hate it.
Jamás había oído de este grupo antes
Something 4 the weekend!
Nice one, like the many- sided styles. Some track very much TGTBaTQ
I knew about them but never listened to them properly. Surprisingly good. Thinking to give them 3.5 stars (I'll decide tomorrow). I think I really liked it (I hope not to be biased because they are from Cardiff...)
guitar driven punky rock. pretty good. dunno if i'd seek this exact album out. after progressing through may return sooner than expected. but I enjoyed it and will probably pop back to sometime, or sprinkle in playlists
Conocía la de Rings Around the World y ya. Este disco está muy verga. Además me sirvió para descubrir otra influencia de la música de un amigo. Paz en el mundo.
Weird welsh indie. BT: Something 4 The Weekend, If You Don't Want Me To Destroy You, Bad Behaviour
El vocal me recordó mucho a Pete Townshend, muy fresco el álbum :))
Fun album. Not very memorable, but solid pop.
Really enjoyed this one! Very easy listen that seemed to go by too quickly. Guitars were a little heavy and distracting at times but for the most part it was great melodies and composition on an emotional ride through each song without being too heavy or dramatic. Definitely putting this album into the regular rotation.
Not familiar with this band. Enjoyed it. Liked the 90s groove and the “noise”. 4.0
there’s some cool soundscapes? I think I need to improv to this
Never heard of this band before. Nice indie-pop guitar driven rock, liked it a lot even though I could only understand like 60% of the words they were saying
Debut sólido. Desde la neo psicodelia, pasando por el Power Pop, el Indie Rock e incluso tintes de Britpop, el debut de los Super Furry Animals encapsula buena parte de los sonidos clásicos noventeros. No será el álbum más aclamado de la banda, pero indudablemente es un sólido trabajo lleno de canciones directas y efectivas. Un punto débil yace en la interpretación vocal, la cual posee influencias muy identificables al punto en que se siente poco propositiva a momentos. Sin embargo, hay que tener en cuenta que es un problema recurrente más aun cuando de álbumes debut se trata. Para mí un sólido 7/10
Fuzzy Logic is the debut album by the Welsh rock band Super Furry Animals. The album cover is a montage of photos of Welsh-born drug smuggler Howard Marks, the subject of the song "Hangin' with Howard Marks". Marks visited Rockfield during the making of the album at the band's request. I had no expectations for this album, but its actually really good! I only favorited a few songs, but could have done quite a few of them. Gathering moss, bad behavior, mario man, several of the non-singles were really catchy.
Very energetic and fun album. I was pleasantly surprised by it.
Really good. Never heard of the band before but I will certainly listen to more.
Muy buen disco en conjunto 3.5
What’s not to love about these guys? Proper welsh wizardry. It’s certainly not their best album, but it’s still a corker!
What would happen if a group of newly signed Welsh lads were let loose in a sonic sweet shop with nothing but some drugs and "A History of Psychedelic Pop and Glam Rock"? Probably something like this. That may appear dismissive, but in fact I had great fun with this album and have been revisiting it since first listen. There's a lot to explore: it's packed to the rafters with vocal effects, varied instrumentation and most importantly, catchy hooks. It zips by with the free-wheeling confidence of a new band revelling in its own ray of light. "God! Show Me Magic" is a few hand-claps short of being a punk-glam standard, "Hometown Unicorn" has a gorgeous singalong chorus, and "Something 4 the Weekend", "Bad Behaviour" and "For Now and Ever" veer just on the right side of being obnoxious. It's all very silly pastiche and doesn't shy away from its influences, but blimey, it's good fun.
So much better than I remember. Lots of killer pop/rock songs that I didn't appreciate as a metal/goth kids in the 90s. My only issue is that it seems to bounce around the place and for me doesn't feel tied together, but still hugely enjoyable.
Banging music. I loved Bad Behaviour
Both relaxed and more intense songs, liked it.
I enjoy the Super Furry Animals. I could probably have this on all day long with no problems, and enjoy it all the way though. It's not gonna be one of my top favourite albums as it hasn't really got that oomph that I need to really get it there. Falls somewhere between a 3 and a 4 for me, but as I can really see myself listening to this on repeat and there's not a single song that I dislike I'll give it a 4.
Aika suoraviivaista rokkia. Tykkäsin levyn tunnelmasta, leppoisan reipasta, hyväntuulista menoa. Sellainen maaliin pääsemisen tunnelma ja sen jälkeinen hyvä olo, varsinkin levyn lopussa.
Had some moments that I thought it sounded like Smash Mouth? Overall, a smooth and relaxing vibe.
Hei täähän ihan jytää! Harva ysärillä tullut rokkilevy on positiivinen. Ei se turhaan ollu grungen valtakautta. Mut tää kyl on aika hyväntuulista ja tällasta glämärihenkinstä psykevetkutusta. Homma toimii ja pituutta koko laikallakin on 40 min joten eri hyvä. Tulee paljon mieleen 2000-luvun alussa vaikuttanut brittibändi the Darkness. Jatkoon. Hyvä nimi bändillä.
Very nice SFA album - they made so many, none of them grabbed me completely but this one comes very close (just like Outspaced, their b-side compilation album).
The first two songs feature hamsters. The band is called Super Furry Animals. I’m interested… This album has a real 70s vibe that I found quite fun. Some good rock with a lot of interesting bits thrown in. Flute and trombone solo? Check. There are little delights to be found all over this musical funhouse. Really enjoyed it! I love how the ending ends with a “we’ll be together” anthem. A wonderfully corny conclusion that appeals greatly to me! Favorite tracks: God! Show Me Magic, Fuzzy Birds, Something 4 The Weekend, Gathering Moss, For Now and Ever
It seems like these guys make music because it's fun. I like it. Musically at least it's light and poppy --- I didn't have a chance to dig deep into the lyrics so maybe they're talking about serious stuff but I was having a good time. Even Long Gone, which is melancholy, if not outright sad, isn't overly earnest or dramatic, just serious enough. Nice.
I liked right away that "hamster" was a lyric in the first two songs. This was fun and Welsh. The subject matter of the songs has to be some of my favorites ever. It's a bit of a crazy mix of styles, but always made me smile.
Eclectic album that I liked but not much stood out to me. Poppy and likeable.
Love this from Gruff and the boys, some bangers on here of Course "Something 4 The Weekend" is a Britpop classic and reminds me of that Mid 90's optimism which we could so do with now, what a different world we are living in now! Favorite tracks "Fuzzy Birds" The aforementioned "Something for the Weekend" and "Long Gone". Terrific stuff
For now and ever
One of the hippy guys that I worked with at Pizza Planet in Mt. Pleasant loved this band. I was always happy he was playing this instead of Phish. But that alone isn't enough to put it on this list...haha. I liked this record. Fuzzed out guitars and great vocal harmonies. What's not to love? I like that the record starts screaming out of the gates. No warm ups here like Supertramp. Which just proves there are a number of ways to effectively start a record. This is another record from the late 90s that I really wish I would have heard at the time. I was searching for something interesting at that point. Beyond the power chords of Nirvana, Bush, and Silverchair. But not so heavy like most main-stream rock at the time. When Weezer shit the bed after Pinkerton (I've since realized there are moments after that, but they aren't the lighting-in-a-bottle that the first two records were), I was really only left with Superdrag. Whereas the 'drag brought American Power Pop influences to my impressionable mind, Super Furry Animals would have brought in the UK pop sensibilities into the mix. There is a lot of Bowie and Eno-esque stuff happening here. And I love that. FAWNN played a show with Gruff Rhys in Pontiac once. He was a very nice dude and it was fun talking to someone from Wales about American Whiskey. He loved it. And weed.
Liked it! Some catchy recognizable songs on here
Great but nothing super special about this.
omg i'm such a huge fan of this album. I had never heard of this band before, but they are very up my alley.
What's not to like? Though I prefer Radiator.
Do tego albumu muszę jeszcze wrócić, na pewno o wiele ciekawszy, niż większość tutejszych średniaków. Dobrze się tego słucha, szczególnie na słuchawkach - ktoś długo przesiadał nad masteringiem płyty. I są smyczki, z automatu +1 byczku.
Fun et éclectique! Prefs: God! Show Me Magic, Fuzzy Birds, Something for the Weekend, Frisbee, Gathering Moss, Bad Behaviour, Hangin' With Howard Marks, For Now and Ever. Moins pref: Long Gone
Liked it a lot. Cool rock/prog rock album, easy listening tunes
These guys are tons of fun. I enjoyed the heck out of this!
Apparently a third of all essential albums are obscure britpop... Pretty good though 4
Some nice songs here!
Интересно, что эту группу я вообще пропустил и не знал или забыл о ней. А группа стоящая. Не могу сказать, что альбом ровный, но очень достойный внимания. 7 из 10.
Britpop + psychedelia + punk rock? Was this album made specifically for me? Fun and the right amount of stupid. Some songs were a bit forgettable. This band is very much up my alley though, gotta check their other work as well. Shit, they made an entire neo-psychedelic album in Welsh?
Enjoyed it and couldn’t grasp what it reminded me of until I saw the suggested Spotify page for Blur
Reminds me somewhat of noisy Bowie/Eno with David Lowrey or somebody singing
Decent britrock album with some interesting edges to it, although in the end it does lack some memorable songs to gain a 4 star rating
Classic psychedelic rock, a very British band that feels like post-Beatles era of rock music in the UK.
This album was very "take it or leave it" for me. I didn't dislike it, but didn't feel very compelled by it either. I think that puts it in the 3-star range for me.
not sure why, but this didn't fully click for me. It's OK, but nothing spectacular to my ears.
Not a bad sound for sure. Not the greatest too.
Alright, alternative, but I like a little more dance-y music, or music with a good hook.
Good try Welsh Blur, good try. (Furry = Blur-y?)
Very interesting album that seemed to have the campy bombast of a british Rocky Horror Picture Show with the psychedelics turned up two notches and one dose of sex pistols. Reasonably fun listen.
Ca va un peu dans tout kes sens. L’ensemble est bizarre, mais des tounes sortent du lot. 3.15
They come of really authentic in their weirdness which I like, and the album has songs of very different musical styles, despite being generally a rock album. I enjoyed it and would explore more of this band.
Un disco entretenido, con sus momentos, pero pues no sé, no se me hace genial dentro de lo que hacen. Disfruté sobre todo la parte de en medio, es decir, "Gathering Moss", "If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You", "Bad Behaviour" y "Mario Man". Me quedo con alguna de esas canciones. Siento que prefiguran de alguna manera toda la onda de bandas "indie" que se levantaron como la espuma en los dos miles y luego los dos mil dieces. 7/10
Something between 90s rock, punkish, glam rock / Bowie, experimental (but not too out there). Some orchestral sounds in there. Decent guitar playing. Interesting overall.
Has a great 90s alt-rock feel to it. Reminds me a lot of the stone roses.
Britpop. Ni fu ni fa.
Bien, sin más.
Hometown Unicorn" Released: 26 February 1996 "God! Show Me Magic" Released: 29 April 1996 "Something 4 the Weekend" Released: 1 July 1996 "If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You" Released: 30 September 1996
A fairly eclectic mix. They have a knack for writing catchy songs with sing-a-long choruses. The singles (that didn’t do well) were the best ones, IMO. They were channeling Mott the Hoople, on Something 4 the Weekend, I thought. I’m also catching a bit of Aladdinsane-era Bowie &T-rex but with a muddier production and raunchy guitar. Nice strings on If You Don’t Want Me to Destroy You. Their furture releases were more radio-friendly, but from what I've heard, I prefer this album.
Okay, had to listen to this like 6 times bc I kept getting distracted. I didn’t like it at first but it’s growing on me. Couple catchy tunes.
Some cool melodies, but otherwise pretty meh. Gathering moss, If you don't want me to destroy you and Mario Man peaked my interest a bit. They're from Cardiff Simon!
Funk mix of college rock, glam, and psychedelic
I was falling behind on my thousand and one homework so had to cram the two Super Furry Animals albums this afternoon. I thought the Fuzzy Logic album was OK with a few good rock songs. Rings Around the World was a little lame. Kinda like music you might hear on a soap opera.
Legalzin, nao conhecia esses caras. Provavelmente iria gostar bastante se ouvisse mais.
Saved Prior: None Saved Off Rip: God! Show Me Magic, Hometown Unicorn, For Now and Ever Cutting Edge: Something 4 the Weekend Overall Notes: This was alright with headphones, but it was a fun listen on the speaker. Don't entirely get what the big deal about them is, but it was fun.
Not a huge fan of them, but I've always had a mild respect for Super Furries. This album is like if Britpop was actually any good, and was heavily inspired by psychedelia and 1970s rock. Still not a very consistent album though. 3.5
Interesting fuse electronic and acoustic music.
C'était sympa mais je vois pas trop pourquoi je devrais absolument écouter ça avant de mourir.
i'm back on that half star thing. Definitely liked it and liked it more than a 3, but not quite enough to tip over to 4. More rock than the multitude of 70s and mild rock we've had lately which was a nice change.
Just couldn’t get into it
13.05.2021. počelo užasno, pa sam ga malo privoleo
I know just a few of their songs. Enjoying this quite a bit. Has an XTC feel, with a big Beatles influence. Songwriting is strong. Feels like 3.5 even a 3.75 🌟
Pretty fun. Drags a little in the 2nd half
Very enjoyable 90s Britpop (Welsh)
I find myself going between "hey this is really fun" and " when is it going to get to the next fun part". Very up and down album. Gets an average review from me.
Fine fuzzy rock.
Average Brit pop. Good energy. No real standout tracks. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I can't really put the textures and feelings of this album into words. It's a psychedelic trip meets fabulous glam rock to create a genre bending punk rock album. All the way through, the guitar tones give you a fantastic grittiness that never let you forget what kind of force this band is, but you get some sweetness with beautiful melodies accompanied by robotic synth and drum samples. Gruff Rhys has an unconventional voice for a lead singer, but that just makes the songs on here all the more unique. No two songs sound the same, and the journey that the tracklist puts you on will make you see how this is classified in the category of "art rock." Favorite Song: Frisbee Least Favorite: Bad Behaviour
The album sounds something like a mutation of Mott The Hoople paired with the Beatles. The songs are a bit trashy and arranged in the cheesiest way (including a trumpet fanfare and a flute march). (6/10) Favourite Track: Something 4 The Weekend
Very simple 90-a pop-rock
Best aardig. Vooal de zang deed me erg aan Blur denken.
A little disapointed with this one, it started well, but then all sounded the same by the end
The album is clearly well-made, but I think I just don't get it.
Meh, didn't throw me off, but never really got going enough that I was invested either.
Aikanaan varmasti muodikasta brittirockin aallonharjalla surffailua. Bändi on itselleni tuttu lähinnä 2000-luvun vähän taiteellisemmasta tuotannosta. Tämän levyn suht suora brittirokki pääsi jopa positiivisesti yllättämään. Jotain samaa löytyy Bluriin sekä laulajan äänen että kappaleiden "leikkisyyden" takia. Tasalaatuinen levy jossa yksikään kappale ei erotu kauhean hyvässä eikä huonossa. Tasalaatuisuus valitettavasti myös toisinaan tuntuu tylsältä ja tasapaksulta. Kolmosen arvoinen iloinen brittirockpläjäys kuitenkin.
Alternative 70s/80s sound
Funky, did not sound like a 90s band
miellyttävää surinaa, ei pahaa sanottavaa. 3/5
SFA ollut ikuisuuden kuuntelulistalla, joten kiitos generaattori. Mukavan melodista, emotionaalista ja monipuolista sekä hyviä soundeja. Tosin ehkä joku herkkyys tai suunta uupui, niin ei noussut sen huikeammaksi kokonaisuudeksi. Mutta vahva hyvä.
Alko lupaavasti, mutta lopulta ei ollut kovin mieleenpainuva, perus ysärirockia, välillä vähän jännemmillä saundeilla. Vaikuttaa vähän taas näiltä "brittikriitikot tykkäsivät" levyiltä.
They were trying very hard to make the songs sound interesting on this album. It was a good effort that brought back memories from the mid 90s, but none of the songs really gelled with me, so in the end the album left me underwhelmed.
Well, I was not familiar with the group or album, but they have a familiar style...it's rock-ish but with up-beat and catchy melodies sprinkled in...kinda fun. I think that had I heard this album when originally released, then I would have been more of a fan. That is when I discovered some other artists of this ilk that I loved and still do. Maybe I am just past adopting more of this style in my love-library. It was fine, just not something that I want to hold on to.
Good songwriting, good variety, strong 3
decent debut, they have better
The first half sounded like the soundtrack to an obscure late 90s Paul Rudd romcom. Then it just got sorta boring. I guess I don't understand the charm or significance of this album nor did I find it particularly enjoyable. Wasn't bad just wasn't interesting to me.
furry, fuzzy, forgettable
Decent. Some great psychedelic guitar and good drumming. Songs aren't particularly well crafted though so it's not reet memorable.
C'est pas mauvais. Quand c'est plus rock, on est dans du Weezer de cette époque, mais moins accrocheur. Quand c'est plus psychédélique et calme, les arrangements sont intéressants. Et dans les pièces plus smooth comme l'intro de Mario Man ou Gathering Moss, la voix est mixée comme dans bien des pièces de Damon Albarn (dans Gorillaz et surtout The Good, The Bad and The Queen pour la pièce Gathering Moss). La pièce Long Gone me fait beaucoup penser à The Dears à cause du ton de voix et des arrangements. Bref, pas mauvais, mais pas mémorable. Sûrement que j'y retournerai et si j'avais une playlist rock des années 90 à faire, j'irais sûrement y piger une pièce ou deux pour avoir un peu plus de variété.
Overall it was okay. Kind of weird sometimes, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
It took a couple of listens to get intrigued but after that threshold I found an alright album. It's pretty noisy but has clear melodies. I'm glad I gave it another chance otherwise it would've remained as a bad image. Still not a favourite of mine and only really liked a few songs, but have learned to appreciate it more. Something 4 the Weekend was the best song on here. I like how Super Furry Animals have Howard Marks, a famous drug smuggler from their country of Wales not only on their album cover, but referenced in one of their songs too. Not one of the best songs on the album but it's pretty cool regardless.
Nierówny album. Niektóre kawałki ze smyczkami bardzo mi się podobały, niektóre miały dziwny mix i bardzo nużyły, a wręcz były nieprzyjemne. W sumie jak na popo-coś, za mało są chwytliwi. Uczciwa trójeczka.
Powinni bardziej się skupić na cheezy-rock-popie bo te kawałki brzmią dużo lepiej jak "something 4 the weekend"".
I liked long gone, rest is ok
A strong start, some good tracks, but a couple overstay their welcome...however, loved, loved Something 4 the weekend, although it reminds me of something I can't put my finger on...I want to say Polyphonic Spree's Light and Day, which came 8 year later so maybe they heard this track.
From Wikipedia: "James Delingpole in a January 1997 review in The Daily Telegraph wrote the band had produced a 'strange mix of Bowie-esque glam rock, school-of-Syd-Barrett psychedelia and DIY kitsch'". I could not have said it better. This band is so distinctly out of time for 1996, it's hard to praise it for doing anything particularly daring. For what it's worth, Fuzzy Logic is certainly a successful blend of these influences. I just feel they do little to expand on them in a way that matters. It's a good sound, but nothing to write home about. Is this the best 90's act that Wales has to offer? I hope not.
Not bad, an eclectic mix that handles itself well but isn’t mind blowing
This album was an attempt at reinventing late 60s/early 70s rock and while it didn’t fail miserably it wasn’t great. I thought the first 3ish songs were enjoyable and then it lost me a bit.
Some parts of this album I enjoyed but other parts kinda went off the deep end. Overall it was a good album but not something I need to go back to.
I didn't think it was anything particularly memorable, but a decent album.
Not the furries!!!
Nothing special but a nice rock band album
Unique, I suppose, but I wasn't "wowed."
With some of these albums I really don't get the "must hear before you die". this was good but quite irrelevant
A farmer sips unruly amounts of Blur and churns out this album. A bit so-so for me
This failed to grab me and I lost interest fairly quickly
Almost turned that one off at a couple points, but it was better than sonic youth so it has that going for it...
Kolejna nowosc w mojej plytowej biblioteczce, szybki look up na discogu dal nadzieje, ze wreszcie jakas 5 ustrzele, bo gatunek rocka psychodelicznego, ale obawy wzbudzila juz data powstania 96 na wyspach brytyjskich, niestety w tym wypadku niezbyt zgodze sie z discogiem, bo jak dla mnie furrasy brzmia jak the clash i red hot chilli peppers po 91 przerobieni w malakserze, a na niektorych trackach wokale brzmia wrecz glamrockowo od razu skojarzylo mi sie z bolanem, ciezko mi znalesc jakies hajlajty albumiku, wiec na plejliste leci tylko something 4 the weekend, za refrenik ktory by przeszedl w psycho rocku zlotej ery
there's something that doesn't click eventhough i should like it. hey ho.
Nothing really interesting here. It's not bad, just not my tempo, I guess.
A pretty cool album, but a little all over the place and difficult to follow. The songs I saved I really liked, but the others weren't incredibly memorable Saved: Something 4 the Weekend, Hangin' with Howard Marks
Started well, got worse as it went on
What is this supposed to be? Some sort of 90s dissonant, psychedelic alt-rock that can't decide if it wants to be modern or old-school (for it's time, respectively). In any case it's not good and I was relieved when it was over.
Really uneven vocals and sound mixing was not thrilled
Not quite what I was looking for. I like worse music than this but did not like this.
I did listen to this one, but it wasn’t my kind of music. I like pop, but this was not my kind of pop.
honestly i don't remember this album, but i remember it was weird and all the people on the cover look like convicted murderers or sex offenders. IM NOT SAYING THEY R THO 3.5/10
Exceptionally pedestrian with nothing standing out at all. Bland, boring, unoriginal
mehhhhh its grand and bland - "I just keep repeating myself" the lyircs are shitty get weird beatles vibes but worse "You and I united by itemised bills" maybe the lyrics went over my head but just seems like nonsense and only this song musically caught my attention as acoustic but also meh tried here but itgave me nothing
Hade inte hört talas om detta walesiska band tidigare, och det första jag märkte var det töntiga namnet. Tyvärr, så uppfyllde även musiken mina tidiga fördomar. Albumet är till största del ganska fjantigt. Låtar som låter mer som att bandet gillar att "ha kul" än att göra bra musik. De första 5 låtarna är dåliga på just detta sättet, även om det då och då kan höras en tillstymmelse till vad som hade kunnat bli en bra refräng. Spår 6, Gathering Moss, är ett av de få undantagen på skivan. Här visar bandet att de faktiskt besitter någon sorts talang, och faktiskt KAN göra bra musik. Låten har mer substans, låter annorlunda och uppiggande. Även följande låt, If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You, är ganska bra. Utöver dessa bör även Long Gone nämnas. Den är bra, och låter som något från Babyshambles Sequel to the Prequel. Bästa låt: Gathering Moss.
Pop meio indie meio legal.
In general, it was strange for me. I really love psychedelic and, I like glam metal / rock. But their combination has not made an impression on me Unfortunately, the group (album) was not hooked. It singled out three songs for myrself from the album: 1) Long go; 2) Gathering moss And another one is interesting for its history: Hanging with Howard Marks
I'm all for anything that seeks to poke fun at the '90's Brit Pop movement. Some of it holds up nicely. Some of it screams, "We don't give a bloody fuck if we're big in America. America should come to us!" Not for nothing, but I'm nonplussed by the band's name.
Dezelfde stem als de zanger van Blur. Muziek vind ik weinig verheffend :)
Na een aantal nummers ben ik die psychedelische noise wel een beetje beu.
Leek veel belovend maar eindigde in the middle of the road! Vandaag beter, hopelijk
Nee helaas, 2x geprobeerd maar ik vond er weinig aan
I couldn't get into it. It's a very diverse album with a bunch of different styles of music (well, different takes on "British guys with guitars", at least) on it, but it comes across as more exhausting than exhilarating.
I put this on and it almost immediately faded into the background. Spot checking the most played track and a couple of the others (though the play counts suggest this album is on here for just one song) none of them caught my ear particularly. I discovered after listening that apparently the band can sing entirely in welsh and reckon if they had it would have at least been interesting. As it stands I won't be returning to this one
Not sure why this made the list but it was alright. 90s alternative hippie genre-jumping.
A very bland album. Listened to it, had to do something, and already kind of forgot what it sounded like. 4/10.
Man, it took me 3 days to get through this. Not because it was particularly bad, but because it never held my attention. Some fun sounds on a few tracks and a catchy hook or two.
This is okay. I'm not sure what separates it from other "weird" mid-90s bands. They did seems to use an impressive number of effects - seemingly at random. There were a few songs that I really enjoyed, but - as an album - not so much.
Adequate Furry Animals.
Average wannabe indie band. I struggle to see what is super about them.
I think this might have been a bit too cheesy for my liking. Didn't find anything particularly catchy - just a set of unremarkable pop-ish songs. Nothing to write home about.
god this album is totally fine but 90s brit pop is so annoying to me for some reason. cannot imagine ever listening to this again.
Instead of writing a new review that criticizes the overabundance of British-Pop on this lis, I'll just copy/paste my last critique, which was also a Super Furry Animals album - just 12 albums ago. "With all due respect to Glass Animals fans, and fans of late 90s / early 00s BritPop – No. Understanding that the book this list is based on is British and most of it's contributors are British, the amount of unnecessary BritPop on this list is a head-scratcher. Rings around the world is an okay album. It starts off strong and almost halfway into the album I started getting annoyed and frustrated. Yay for the band that they peaked at number three on the UK charts, but across the pond you have to get to the Indie Charts before you even see this album rank a moderate 32 for the year. This is not a list-worthy entry. Perhaps I'm becoming annoyed at the draws that are giving me mediocre UK pop for the the third time in four days, but I'm hopeful tomorrow will be better. 3/5 for musicality | 2/5 for list worthiness."
90s copy of 70s. started promising, but quickly fell into annoyance.
This sounds like a conscious effort to make "90s music". Feels like manufactured Gen X slacker vibes, nods to various alternative-ish sounds of the time, and then drenched in Beatles-isms. Not for me. 2/5.
I couldn’t get through this one. Brit pop just is not for me
Another boring British rock band. It doesn't get any more generic than this.
After first two songs I am not really about this album so far. Yeah after 4 songs I do not like this album
La mera verdad perdí interés... No le vi nada especial.
Pues no me gustó.
Simply not for me.
maybe if i didnt hate his falsetto
This wasn't for me. Didn't enjoy this at all.
not for me
Nothing of note, didn't hold my attention
