the super furry animals frontman’s 5th solo album is surely best record to date; a ten-song gazetteer of modern times - each track set to timeless, indelible melody.

the album features orchestral scores by Swansea-based composer Stephen McNeff and the incredible work of the 72-piece BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Amazingly, for a collection of songs written over two years prior to their release, each one seems to pull very sharp focus on the historical terrain of 2018. “perhaps the first record of his career that doesn’t demand a quadrophonic sound system, a slide show, a detailed explanation or a knowing wink. it’s warm and weird, but suddenly no stranger than the world around it. in surreal times, he finally makes sense” 9/10 – uncut.
