Customer Review

on 18 May 2006
Some music critics like to be all coy and bashful about Phoenix, claiming that the main reason for their success is the attention to detail and immaculate production, exemplified on both previous albums.

Rubbish! What makes Phoenix brilliant is that they make catchy, fun, hook-laden, 3-minute summery pop-wonders without any hint of pretentiousness.

And this album is Phoenix distilled to their most immediately intoxicating essence, coming over as a curious cross between the Strokes and the Housemartins, particularly on the irrestibly jangly 'Consolation Prizes' and 'Rally'. With little evidence of post-production or studio trickery these songs were made to be played live!
