"Muchacho del Lujo" is an expanded version of Phosphorescent's 2013 release combined with a glorious live concert from an intimate pre-release live show recorded at St. Pancras Church in London. "Muchacho" is an album that was borne out of a domestic crisis and recorded on the beach in Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula. It represented a culmination of Matthew Houck's musical outpuring following a relentless touring schedule and exhaustion. The restless troubadour has incorporated for the first time electronica and new textures in a major way into his songs and packed them full of undulating synthesiser arpeggios. Yet behind this remains a true voice, one that is wounded and often hurt but glories in the simple wonders of life and eschews self pity. A guilty confession and mea culpa also from this reviewer. Upon reflection my posted original review of the album was cast to early and was too dismissive. Part of the reason for this was the presence of a number of stellar standout tracks on first listens that almost seemed to crowd out the surrounding music. Yet over time the sum of the parts become the whole and you grow to love them all dearly. Equally the approach of bookending the album with two essentially same hymnals not only felt a tad "Fleet Foxes" but seemed to cheat the record of other songs. This deluxe version of the album fully addresses this not least with glorious largely piano led live versions and lets the original album breath properly.

For those approaching for the first time the splendid signature track from the album "Song for Zula" is the Song of 2013. Houck's threadbare road weary voice against the backdrop of slabs of synths is superb and the lyrics are emotional darts.

Other reviews detail the context of the extra songs on this deluxe pack. I bought the original, which remains a favourite. An album, packed with emotion, wonderful melodies, and for me, was the soundtrack to a wonderful holiday with my family. 'Song for Zula' still hits deep in my heart. Needless to say the advent of the 'deluxe' package saw me dole out further cash! Well worth it. The additional tracks, a full 78mins long, feature Matthew Houck accompanied by piano and light guitars, set in a church - very appropriate for his dreamlike songs and fragile vocals. The CD features many songs from the album plus some highlights from previous album. High quality and essential for any fan.

I don't think it's particularly right to come out with a deluxe version many months after the original. However, in this case, a worthwhile purchase! I look forward to the next, and seeing Phosphorescent live again some time.

Recording of an intimate "try out" concert in London is bundled with the standard disc. We were lucky enough to be at the concert, and the recording is a reminder of a great evening. Just a duo, so the voice and melodies come through strongly. Great stuff!

This is my album of the year - even before this edition came out.

Don't know what else to say...check out some songs on youtube. If you like, come back and buy the album. It's fantastic.
