this is exactly the album i've been waiting for them to make since 'United'.
I'm not sure if thats a good or bad thing...
nah, just sounds Parisian.
I think its the synths and the disco beat that make me think camp, like they are re-hashing Roule stuff with indie songs on top. You dont get much more camp than this kinda thing...
not sayin thats a bad thing just an observation... I love disco and dont mind the strokes.
Love Like A Sunset Party Part I is pretty cool not sure about the rest, 1901 aint bad either.
perfect for the summer.
But gonna wait for the release on Monday. Been looking forward to it for too long and you can't beat that fresh first listen proper.
Anyone going to see 'em in London next month? For my money the closest a new band has ever got to steely dan... a very good thing!
1901, Lizstomania, Girlfriend and Armistice.
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix = WOW! I absolutely love it! Every time I listen to it, it brings a massive smile to my face! It is packed with songs that remind me of Summer! Good bloody times! :)
I had a listen to Lisztomania, and I thought 'this is cool, but it's nothing different'. Like, Phoenix have a great sound and are very good at what they do, but i get the feeling that they'll be making this type of music forever. Like, it'll always be the same - you could've slipped this song onto United and noone would notice. That's no disrespect to them as a band or anything, and I'll definately check out the rest of the album (love 'United' and 'It's Never Been Like That'), but I'm getting a bit... bored. Hopefully the rest of the album is fresh and interesting enough to keep my interest in this otherwise great band.
I now realise the stupidity of judging an album and the entire career of Phoenix on the basis of 'Lizstomania'. Forgive me, DiS.
