Album Review Phoenix - Alphabetical

The album will have you clicking, clapping and dancing; making the perfect accompaniment to that barbeque party you were planning on hosting this summer.

Phoenix

are back with their second album, ‘Alphabetical’. Like the single, this is an album made to bring out the sun which aims to please, with poppy tracks galore and complete lack of any lyrics in French.

‘Alphabetical’ is beautiful and melodious, yet still not quite on a par with some of their debut album. There is no mistaking the fact that this album will help them make a name for themselves, with Radio One already showing a keen interest in current single ‘Run Run Run’. Every record store you go in, every pillar you walk past; you will see and hear the name Phoenix.

The album will have you clicking, clapping and dancing; making the perfect accompaniment to that barbeque party you were planning on hosting this summer. The hip-hop feel to some of the beats and Mars’ style of vocals, especially in ‘Victim Of The Crime’, will also gain the attention of new fans.

Just watch out for this band, with another album even on a par with this or their last album and they will be in the most elite fan’s list of bands to namedrop.
