Radiator album cover

Super Furry Animals

Creation Records

The giddy, knowing joy that characterized Super Furry Animals almost out of the gate continued apace on their second album, 1997’s Radiator. If mildly less anarchic in ways it’s only a matter of degrees, with the same cockeyed and all-encompassing spirit evident throughout, an early Roxy Music for a later generation. “Hermann ♥’s Pauline” is the best salute to Albert Einstein since Sparks’s “Talent Is An Asset,” while “Chupacabras” may be the best glam-stomp anthem about Mexican monsters sung by Welshmen ever.
