Super Furry Animals--Hey Venus! (New!)
Artist-Super Furry Animals
Release Date-September 7, 2007
Reviews coming from the critics-
Dot Music: Hey Venus! is conspicuously short and sweet, and as a result among the greatest things they've ever done.
MusicOMH.com: Hey Venus!, then, is not the type of progressing heavyweight that has marked the output of later day Super Furries. As a shorter, lighter effort, though, it is every bit as tantalising, thickly coated in SFA-brand special sauce and still worth its weight in goal.
Stylus Magazine: What Hey Venus! ultimately is, is a good record of classy pop/rock songs, arranged and produced well, shot through with a degree of personality and skill, and almost completely lacking in the inspired, eclectic madness which made "Radiator and Guerilla" so damn good.
Uncut: Hey Venus! is an attractive album with a broad appeal – Rough Trade wanted a pop record and got one--but it also feels like a missed opportunity, a consolidation of affairs rather than a step forward.
