especially Love Like A Sunset <3
the way it moves into the second half is superb.
although Love Like A Sunset is my least favourite I think
...and although it's not my favourite of the year so far, it'll almost certainly be the one I play the most. Really into Armistice at the moment.
But then I expected no less of Phoenix, they've never failed to release anything less than the sublime. Would like to see them top Alphabetical some time though.
but not necessarily a bad thing. Definitely one of the best pop groups going. I think Lisztzomania is pretty darn near a perfect song
as I like to get maybe one semi-pop indie record a year you know for light entertainment while washing up, lending to your mum and garden partys. But this got really dull really quick alot of the tracks are really samey and it just makes me want to listen to old french house records instead because they seem to be doin what those lot were back in the day but with strokes-esq indie-lite stuff on top.
gonna watch them live for the first time in August.. should be great fun.. anyone ever seen them live before? are they any good?
the album was not reviewed in DiS wasnt it..?
we only got hold of a copy of it late last week.
my review will either be up later today or on monday morning.
Really good. Fun.
Lisztomania is a fucking great track and a great wee summer number. It does get a bit samey towards the end but I am still really liking it.
are brilliant. The rest is good, but not as good as those three. Fences is probably my favourite.
groovy French pop ordnance falling onto Arizona?
as sizeofanocean said the first three tracks work like a charm. The more experimental Love like a sunset nicely cuts the record in half and then is good until the final song Armistice which is as great as the first three.
Maybe the right time to repost this?
No, its not the greatest album of all time, but by god is it a damn fine pop album!
I was quite interested to hear how 'Girlfriend' had changed between the leaked rip and the official album.
yeah it ain't reinventing thr wheel but I think we all know we wouldnt want anything else from them.
but a lot of it sounds quite similar. Still, good stuff, am guessing these guys are going to get pretty massive over the summer.
