Mwng (pronounced [ˈmʊŋ]; English: Mane) is the fourth studio album by Welsh rock band the Super Furry Animals, and the first by the group to have lyrics written entirely in the Welsh language. Mwng was released on 15 May 2000 on the band's own record label, Placid Casual, following the demise of their former label, Creation. The album includes the single "Ysbeidiau Heulog", and reached number 11 on the UK Albums Chart following its release—the first Welsh-language album to reach the top 20. This success led to Mwng being mentioned in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom by Elfyn Llwyd, who described the record as a celebration of a "new wave of confidence in the Welsh nation".

A thing of beauty. Sweeps the floor with the CD version I have. Pressing is impeccable. Flat discs and quiet. The soundstage is much wider and balanced. So glad I got this at a fair price!

A beautiful album and a lovely re-issue, the card box will no doubt get a battering in time though, it would have been nice for it to be a little sturdier. In regard to sound quality, it sounds as good - if not identical to the original pressing to my ears. I have both and cannot distinguish against the two. The extra discs are fantastic also, especially the Peel session. They sound even more raw and in my opinion, better in this live studio environment. Definitely a departure from their usual sound, but one of their best albums as a result; more so because it is in their native tongue.

Quality re-release.. Beautiful album but the extra discs are the real stars.. Mwng Bach is great to hear and the live recordings capture the band in full flow.. When I bought the original LP in 2000 I wasn't sure what to make of it.. Now revisited I feel this is one their most coherent releases...
