CD Candylion [Digipak] [Gruff Rhys]
Spin (p.94) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n excellent collection of space folk and ramshackle Tropicalia that matches the wild-eyed absurdism of his band's better output."Q (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t pinballs between the childlike pop of the title track, the archaeologist fantasy of 'The Court of King Arthur' and the closing 14-minute '60s pop epic Skylon!."Magnet (p.108) - "Everything sounds as though it came together quite naturally. Best evidence of that assessment is 'Lonesome Words,' which swells from fireside folk hymn to spectral, string-adorned heights over three tidily arranged sections."Mojo (Publisher) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Rhys glues everything together with a crisp sense of confidence..."
CD Jimmy's Show [Digipak] *
Q (Magazine) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "JIMMY'S SHOW is a psychedelic album that owes much to both Ray Davies and Gruff Rhys....Filled with richly melodic songs..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.91) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's as delightful as anything he's previously done, and often better with Hendrix-as-pop guitar, Hammond organ swells, lush harmonies and swinging brass..."
CD Blue Eyed in the Red Room
The Wire (p.47) - "The whole assemblage strobes with filigree and aftertrail and it's a miracle that it moves forward so gracefully, as purposeful as a hand-woven rug."Mojo (Publisher) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 - "An agreeably bittersweet album..."
CD Stainless Style [PA]
Uncut (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a thrill to hear Rhys' mellifluous voice juxtaposed with the music's synthetic thrust....As an exercise in sleek, nostalgic pop fantasy, STAINLESS STYLE is a lot of fun..."Q (Magazine) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] terrific collaboration on DeLorean's life story. Cue convincing synth-pop about the playboy industrialist's lust for power..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[B]ehind the mechanised chill is a small human presence taking on the robots, a warm pulse driving the glorious sci-fi pop of 'I Told Her On Alderaan' and 'Raquel'."Mojo (Publisher) (p.69) - Ranked #28 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "[T]he sleekest ride of the year."Clash (magazine) (p.65) - Ranked #20 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "Boom Bip and Gruff Rhys teamed up to make a sonic interpretation of John DeLorean's life."URB (Magazine) (p.107) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Erstwhile Super Furries eccentric Gruff Rhys sings the tale in his dulcet rasp, documenting his protagonist's rise and fall in the first person and with hilarious detail over the power-pop bounce of LA-based electro texturalist Boom Bip."Record Collector (magazine) (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Boom Bip's beats are straight 80s electro discotheque....They propel the tale along, both capturing the era and, in the case of 'I Told Her On Alderaan,' taking you anywhere you like."
CD Dark Night Of The Soul [Limited Edition]
Alternative Press (p.146) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "DARK NIGHT's trippy, psychedelic tunes are a true treat for your ears."Billboard (p.29) - "[I]t's the airtight beats of Danger Mouse and the surreal songwriting of Linkous that make this a fascinating set."Mojo (Publisher) (p.55) - Ranked #28 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "Heartbreaker of the year no question."Paste (magazine) - "[I]t's a breathtaking set of atmospheric ballads that explore cosmic concerns, from the self-destructive trap of revenge to the possibility of spiritual renewal."Clash (magazine) - "David Lynch's star shimmers brightest. His delivery of the wonky title track is simultaneously spooky and sensual..."Uncut (magazine) - "There are some big-name cameos....The guest vocalists aren't just hired hands. Each singer has shaped his or her part..."
CD A Psychedelic Guide to Monsterism Island
CD Hotel Shampoo [Digipak]
Spin (p.73) - "[W]himsically rewarding, mildly schizophrenic psych-pop."Q (Magazine) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] characteristic gem...teeming with inventiveness and whimsical charm....Rhys wears his creativity lightly here."Clash (magazine) - "HOTEL SHAMPOO shows off a simpler, stripped back Rhys -- whose lyrics are placed front and centre of beautifully arranged tracks, each imbued with an infectious energy."Record Collector (magazine) (p.89) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Without ever slipping into self-pity or over-sentimentality, Gruff faces up to some of the lesser-celebrated facts of humanity, yet sweetens the pill with his most meticulously-crafted solo album yet."Uncut (magazine) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]eemingly quirky and trivial, but executed with such honesty and dedication that it acquires an unexpected layer of meaning and poignancy."
