Babelsberg may be a place that exists - it's a small town in Germany, to the southwest of Berlin - but Gruff Rhys uses it as a fantastical construct on his 2018 album of the same name. Conceptual pop is Rhys' forte and while he arranges this, his fifth solo album, around a loose idea of how humanity may wind up burrowing to hell while attempting to build a tower to heaven, the distinguishing characteristic of the album is its lush, enveloping sound.

Посмотреть сведения об участниках альбома, рецензии, композиции и приобрести альбом 2018 CD от Babelsberg на Rhys screamed on the first song of the first Super Furry Animals album, and 22 years later hes still waiting patiently. Even as his band of psych-rock shapeshifters waded through all manner of global epidemics-pollution, war, technology overload, evangelicalism, and, um, vampire bats-he never lost his grace, sense of humor, or faith in the underdog. While the Furries have been on pause for much of the current decade, Rhys has continued juggling absurdity and profundity, albeit with a more delicate touch, as a solo artist. For all its lavish instrumentation and weighty subtext, however, Babelsberg never overwhelms Rhys preternatural gift for writing swoon-worthy melodies. Perhaps Gruff Rhys has suffered as a result of his reputation as one of pops eccentrics. His band Super Furry Animals were always willing to confound, and his solo career this is his fifth album, plus the Set Fire to the Stars soundtrack has appeared dictated as much by whimsy as foresight. So one might be forgiven for approaching Babelsberg with a certain amount of trepidation, especially given that the promo bumf includes such poptastic phrases as state-sponsored murder , numbing helplessness , and I was working on an opera about a post-apocalyptic Wales. You wouldnt get that mood of despair from the music


Aside from the cash in...
The album is a masterpiece. Goes to show us that everything starts and ends in the 60's (La's interview) Sounds like Pet Sounds did LSD with Sgt. Pepper. Gruff Rhys is an artist, a fan, artist again. I know his secret, well learned, well earned.
Live, Gruff Rhys is part comedy with genius psychedelic music played on top, in and out of our ears, creating a river of sound throughout any venue.
Best of these times.
Even though Super Furry Animals - Rigs Around the World is one of my favourite albums - Ever!!! I wasn't expecting too much from this release. Maybe because other Gruff Rhys releases have been primarily soundtracks, it has been difficult to warm to them as a whole. Babelsberg though, wow!!! snuck out almost totally under my radar, I thought I'd give it a bash just for old times sake. So glad I did, what a joy. From the Glen Campbellesque opener 'Frontier Man' to the dark but beautiful 'Selfies in the sunset' this set of songs is brimming over with nagging melodies and lyrical earworms.
What with digital playlists etc, maybe albums aren't listened to in their entirety, from beginning to end, as much these days. Babelsberg though, warrants that old school investment of time and patience. The sequencing is perfection, every song follows on seamlessly from the last and the A and B side closers are exactly how records/vinyls should be arrranged. Leaving you wanting to flip over or return to the start.
I could bang on about individual tracks, but it's not worth it, they are all total class from someone who appears to have brought all the elements of passed projects together to create a(nother?) career masterpiece. Awards and end of year best albums lists await.
Let's hope Babelsberg rings around the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
