Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's Never Been Like That (Audio CD)
If you only buy one album this year, buy this. I'd never heard of Phoenix before until I heard 'Consolation Prizes' on the radio, thought it was worth getting the album - didn't realise this was their third album. Am I glad I bought it, this is absolutely the best thing I've heard for ages. While their style could be compared to The Kooks in parts of this album, overall it's much more consistent than their offering. I've been playing this in the car continuously for the last 3 weeks and it gets better with every listen, although it could have been a bit longer at just under 40 minutes. Still, I'd rather have 10 great tracks than a few fillers thrown in to pad it out. I highly recommend you get this, you won't be disappointed.

agreed that this album is fantastic, but comparing them to the Kooks can only put people off surely?!
