Phoenix-Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)






So i picked this album up for 8 bucks at target because of all the hype. literally i read glowing reviews everywhere for this album hailing it as the best slice of indie pop ever, blah blah blah. So i have listened to it a few times. Basically their sound is Of Montreal if they hadn't made music the music they made after "Satanic Panic In the Attic" which, by the way, is a good thing. Really all this is, is quirky Strokes influenced indie rock, nothing more, nothing less. The single "Lisztomania" might be one of the best songs of the year but this album is very average. I really wouldn't recommend it nor would i condemn it to the fiery depths of music hell, it's just average. so yeah don't believe the hype but download "Lisztomania"

  2. i have wanted to see that movie for a long time, it also has roger daltrey as the main guy and a bunch of other musicians. it is vhs only which really sucks considering the same director did TOMMY which was pretty huge. so far the only review i have read of this album to mention the movie was pitchfork's.
