AllMusic Review by

The Welsh are a strange people at the best of times. Bwyd Time is one of the few albums to have put their peculiarity into a recording. The psychedelic pop/rock fusion that Gorky's Zygotic Mynci created has never been better captured than on this, the band's debut album. With obvious influences from Robert Wyatt, the Kinks, and even the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band, you know you're in for an abnormal affair with Bwyd Time. Even a mere peek at the front cover proves that. With Gorky's, however, abnormality can be made into greatness. Their amazingly original sound is both fun and musically interesting. Bwyd Time succeeds in holding listeners' attention throughout its 50 minutes, while songs such as "The Game of Eyes," "Miss Trudy," and "Bwyd Time" will stay with you long after the album has finished. This release is a rather eccentric album that, while not appealing to the masses for its mystic and at first inaccessible values, will ingratiate the keen listener.
