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

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!

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.

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!

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.

The fourth Phoenix album in my collection and possibly the best thus far. I say possibly, because up until now each and every album has had so much to remember in terms of quality tracks.

What separates this one out is it is a proper cohesive album with a defined beginning and end. It is compact, 10 tracks, each one neatly interwoven to make a stunning whole.

So, for the unititiated what are you getting? Put simply, beautiful pop tunes that shimmer out from each and every note with fantastic tunes that are uplifting and chilled at the same time. With it's reduced price tag it is a complete bargain.

Definitely one of the albums of 2009.
