After the first few listens, I've got to say that the follow-up to last year's wonderful 'Checkmate Savage' is a massive leap forward.
They've retained the guts and soul of the last Lp, but smoothed off some of the rougher egdes and grown as songwriters. There's a great folkiness to it, but they also know how to hit a groove when the need arises.
Personally, I can't get enough of it. Few bands around are this inventive, and I love the fact that they come across, like all the best bands, as a gang (or clan).
And this cd is almost worth buying for the artwork alone! Late contender for my Lp of the year.

Loved their first album so I was looking forward to hearing the wants and I certainly wasn't let down. This band continue to make unusual quirky sounds with good lyrics, perhaps a little more electronica than their debut, my favourate tracks are "Everybody knows it's true" "Into the corn" & "Mr natural". If you are looking for something thats a bit different give this album a listen.

I'd apologise for the joke, but then I'd've deleted it if the sorry was sincere (and then there would be no need to apologise). Any way ... "The Wants" is a successful second album by the Phantom Band, following the accomplished and sublime "Checkmate Savage". As in their debut, the Phantoms treat the numerous influences on their sound with respect, and if you listen closely you will hear them winking and tipping their hats to a myriad of musical genres ... and they still sound unique. I'd say this album is as strong as "Checkmate Savage". My favourite track is probably "Goodnight Arrow", the final track; a brilliant finale to a fine cd.

The Wants is a much more coherent collection of epic tunes than their first, Checkmate Savage. It pulses between darker electronic and more delicate acoustic songs, without breaking beat. Perhaps it's missing the surprises of their debut (I'm thinking about that vocal bass part) but that's no bad thing. The entire thing is quality and I know that the tracks will set themselves apart further on more listens. Sound-wise I keep picturing Battles (the band) in a folky pub; I'll have a pint of heavy. Part of you and part of me, go together perfectly.

Another fine recording from the Phantom Band. I don't know if they're progressing so much as heading off in multiple directions. It's not as surprising as the first album and I might quarrel with some very 80s electonica but if you don't like a track, then the next one will provide something very different. This is certainly one for lovers of folk, dance, guitar, synth, rock etc...
