Biography

The French group Phoenix draw elements from their eclectic ’80s upbringing to arrive at a satisfying synthesis of rock and synthesizers. Vocalist Thomas Mars, bassist Deck d’Arcy, and guitarist Christian Mazzalai were a garage band based out of Mars’ house in the suburbs of Paris. Mazzalai’s older brother Branco joined the band on guitar when his band Darlin’ ... Read more in Amazon's Phoenix Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing. 19 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Wolfgang Amadeus is one of the best albums i own.
Immediately your hit by the catchy and terribly fun Listomania and 1901. Then comes Love like a sunset (part 1), this is one of my favourite songs period!

In my opinion, some of the later songs are growers and don't instantly appear as good as the opening trio, however i've come to love them just as much. I love every song on the album, Phoenix have this amazingly ablitly to convey images of heartwarming summers. This coupled with the brilliant lyrics and execution make Phoenix one of the most clever and approachable bands around today.

I recomend this album. Seriously, buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop Goes The Pheonix 16 July 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Shoot me down in flames but I have a somewhat fixed belief that
until very recently the French (rather like Italy) have contributed
very little of lasting value to the history of popular music.

Not even Serge Gainsbourg's 'Harley Davidson' can redeem them.

'Pheonix' have done well to challenge my innate and irrational
prejudices and I am pleased to report that I am besotted with
their new album 'Wolfgang Amadeus Pheonix'.

There is some irrepressibly good energy in these 10 fine songs.

Mr Mars has an appealing voice; smooth and high and debonair.
The melodies are strong; the rhythms dance-friendly.
Messrs D'Arcy, Brancowitz and Mazzalai create a never less
than interesting framework for the vocal material; sometimes
fluid and transparent, sometimes dense and darker in tone.

Opening track 'Lisztomania' kicks off the project in fine style.
Chiming guitar, pounding percussion and a strong central vocal
performance from Mr Mars. A very fine pop song.

'1901' continues in a similar vein. A multi-layered slice
of gold-plated creativity. The chorus is an uplifting gem.

Other highlights include the delightful 'Lasso'. Coming in under
three minutes it is a model of economy. Just enough of a good idea.

'Countdown', for my money, is the strongest track in the collection.
A driving anthem, movingly realised. One to play over and over.

This fine little band have found a good formula
and made it work both for themselves and for us.

French redemption is possible after all.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAME WITH THE FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD CARD! 6 Oct 2010
By StevieQ
Format:Vinyl
Just a quick note: I nearly bought the UK release of this album as it was advertised as comming with the free MP3 downlaod.

However, I bought this version - the Glassnote release (as opposed to the UK release on V2), prefering the album on black rather than white vinyl. It was therefore a bonus to find that this version of the release also came with the free MP3 download card - in high quality 320kbps resolution.

Oh, and obviously its a gret record!

5.0 out of 5 stars C'est manifigue! The order of the Phoenix 14 July 2009
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I delighted that no one buys Phoenix records for all the wrong reasons. It enables me to have dirty little secret that is shared only by a few knowing individuals that this French band is actually the greatest pop band on the planet; there is no contest. Alright a load of old farts feeling smug because they are so clever and wise is hardly a compensation for a band who should outsell those tired old dinosaurs that cling onto the charts like limpets U2, Keane, and Muse. But that is the reality and we must learn to live with the deep humilation.

Still you don't know what you're missing. When I say pop music I mean music that people like Air, Blur, Teenage Fanclub and Death Cab for Cutie produce. Intelligent music that grows on every listen and which soundtracks your life, transporting you from the depths of despair to somewhere entirely different. Phoenix are at the apex of such groups. They write crisp, sophisticated, cool, minimalist, French, sleek songs which are so hook laden you could catch a whale with them. They have been around for 10 years and produced brilliant albums throughout including the wonderful "United". Their songs have sound tracked the some of the greatest movies ("Too young" was in Sophia Copola's staggering "Lost in Translation). They have also written songs where it is obligatory to listen to them starring into the bluest oceans in world from the most beautiful beach, on the hottest day with a glass of hugely expensive white wine in your hand and someone you deeply love sat by your side ("You can blame it on anybody" from Alphabetical and "If I ever feel better" from United). Trust me you will think world peace is possible.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's allright. 29 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm new to Phoenix and discovered them late, but my introduction was through 'Bankrupt' which I think has better, more catchy tunes than this album. I'm persevering, as I want to get into them a bit more, so fingers crossed it'll grow.

This is a great album. It might not be everyone's cup of tea but I think it's great. I often find myself sitting in my room singing along to all the songs when I should be working.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album!
First heard them ages ago with their very catchy single 1901. Nothing ground breaking but makes for quite easy listening. Favourites include Lasso and Litztomania.

2.0 out of 5 stars One for the 'bargain bin'
Bought this after reading a bit of positive press and the odd Air comparison.

This record, though, achieves nowhere near the maturity or creativity of Air's work. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Naive Connerie
Uninspiring and pathetic attempt to cash in on faded anemic recipe of Air (Moon Safari). Shallow, monotonous and self-repeating melodies, weak boyish (often off-tune) voices. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars POPTASTIC
If only the chart was based on decent pop music!!
Dont be scared by the word pop though, this album is nearing perfection in the way that the shins first two releases did. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by the DVD
Too much has already been said about the album itself, suffice to say I think it was the best record of 2009; I bought this CD for the extra DVD and was pretty dissappointed. Read more
