And I take issue with the several reviews that claimed the last album, It's Never Been Like That, didn't have any memorable tunes. Long Distance Call is catchier than ANYTHING on this new album, and there's about 5 other great ones too. I like the new one a lot, but I think the previous one is slightly better.

Huh. Well, I actually dug this. More new-new-wave than the chirpy, "I'm more ironic/whiter than you, and I can prove it" preppy indie pop I was expecting. It's not going to change my life, but Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix was definitely a lot of fun. Charming stuff.

Girlfriend and Lasso for me, but I couldn't find a weak song on this. Well, Armistice felt a little generic, but otherwise, it's all good.

I don't really know the songs well enough yet. It kinda all seems like one really long song to me right now. For some reason in this case, I don't think that's a bad thing as it's all enjoyable.

Their album before this one, "It's Never Been Like That," is good, too. Check out, "Napoleon Says," "One Time Too Many" and "Lost and Found."

Good band.

Thanks for the tip. Been playing this a lot lately. I still think the last album is better.
