*****
Phoenix are a band of great singles. And over the years they've built up a great collection, including "Long Distance Call", "Consolation Prizes", "Run Run Run", "Lisztomania", "Everything Is Everything", "Too Young", "Lasso", you get the picture. But on the other hand, they've never really captivated me for the duration of an album. However, of the 4 I've heard, this is their best go at it. Killer hooks all about, and even opening with the great lead single "Entertainment", the album doesn't descend into relative mediocrity. Ending on the gem "Oblique City" helps too. A really delightful album to listen to that is better than the sum of its parts. 4.6
****
I really enjoyed Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix which is what introduced me to them and I was really hoping this latest offering would match or better that. Unfortunately I didn't find that it did and initially I was very harsh on this album as a result. However I've since accepted that while it's not as good, it still has some very enjoyable tracks and for the most part is consistently good. SOS In Bel Air, Trying To Be Cool and Oblique City are the highlights.
****
Interesting juxtaposition to its predecessor. This seems to be an improvement too; it feels more complete and cohesive. That being said, the change in sound is significant in this too as I think the synths make it more interesting. My favourites would be 'Entertainment', 'Oblique City' and 'Don't'.
