    On its fifth album Fandango, Wellington, NZ combo the Phoenix Foundation doesn’t so much eschew the eclecticism of previous efforts as employ greater continuity
  2. May 13, 2013
    Fandango tries to revel in its excess and overreaches far too often to be considered a success.

    Cloaked in fuzzy melancholy, Fandango is one for dreamers. [Jun 2013, p.94]

    Fandango quickly plateaus into an exercise that is pleasant rather than provocative; an effort that, despite occasional highs, is relentlessly...acceptable.

    The Phoenix Foundation never really were a rock band. But Fandango just doesn’t roll often enough.

    Its rambling nature irks, for in among its nearly 80 minutes there are pop diamonds that would have made a sharp and spectacular single LP. [May 2013, p.109]

    Virtually every piece is too leisurely extended beyond its natural span.
