    5 good songs = 5. Their first LP is much better. Some of the songs on this LP seem to drag, and that's never a good thing.

  1. There are some bands who were just meant to be great pop acts -- pop in the George Michael sense, pop in the Fleetwood Mac sense. Phoenix make music that your mom would like, and it's not a bad thing.

    Unbelievably catchy hipster synth-rock. [Sep 2004, p.136]
  3. There's something admirable about a record that proves it's possible to remove grit from adult contemporary pop.
