    Released in late 2007 in the U.K. (and early '08 in the U.S.), HEY VENUS! is the Super Furry Animals' first album for the venerable Rough Trade label, marking a return to the Welsh alternative-rock ensemble's indie roots. In contrast to excellent but sometimes overblown earlier outings such as RINGS AROUND THE WORLD and PHANTOM POWER, HEY VENUS! is more concise and focused, showcasing the group's knack for strange pop-tinged gems on breezy and melodic tracks such as the orchestral "Show Your Hand" and "The Gift That Keeps Giving," a sunny ditty that's lifted by frontman Gruff Rhys's multi-tracked vocals. SFA's more rambunctious side breaks through on the glitchy, off-kilter "Neo Consumer" and the gleefully odd and amped-up "Baby Ate My Eightball," happily proving that the band's restlessness and eccentricity haven't diminished over the years.
