  • Summary: Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys) produced the Furries' follow-up to 2003's "Phantom Power," which sees all of the band members (rather than just Gruff Rhys) taking turns at writing and singing. There are no Welsh songs this time out, although there is one in Portugese.

  1. A work that's at once blissfully romantic, ominously dark, and ridiculously imaginative. [#10, p.107]
  2. Love Kraft is the greatest realisation of the Super Furry vision to date.
  3. 90
    Super Furry Animals have just made perhaps the defining record of their career. [Sep 2005, p.100]
  4. 80
    It's not so much airily psychedelic as totally stoned. [#69, p.99]
  5. What could have easily ended up as a boring, stale record -- the sound of a band getting ready for 401(k) land -- is instead the peaceful sound of a goofy band being a little less silly.
  6. Perhaps it's a little disappointing on some level that Love Kraft is merely a very good Super Furry Animals [album], with few surprises outside of its alluring sleekness.
  7. Love Kraft is taken down by sludgy pacing and a paucity of ideas.
