Super Furry Animals

Love Kraft (XL/Beggars)

The fans who love the Super Furries for their spasmodic mix of neon beats and jittery pop will be disappointed -- a second time, if you count Phantom Planet -- by Love Kraft's conventional midtempo ballads. The lyrics deliver strange puns and double-entendres ("kiss me with apoca-lips"), and the eerie percussion and synths create a melancholy, if off-kilter, mood. But the melodies hew to a post-ELO Brit pop that's so bland and familiar it distracts from the album's subtle pleasures. There are wonderful touches like the evasive, teasing strings on the closer, "Cabin Fever," but only diehard Furry fans will listen that far.
