Super Furry Animals - Radiator
Thanks Mooncat, this is the sort of album I would never check out without a prompt. On this record SFA seem to have corralled the handful of things that I really like about Flaming Lips (especially the keyboard sounds)with all the things I find deeply annoying about them taken out. The song writing is still a bit elliptical for my taste but (neither all the way in or all the way out) but I will certainly be exploring up and down their catalogue.
Radiator is their best album IMO, though I know many disagree. I really like it- and enjoy the 'Fuzzy Logic' debut too, as a fizzy prog-pop rush- but bar a couple of singles, I haven't liked anything thety've done from the third album on.
