Phoenix started a series of excellent albums with this 2009 release. A huge improvement in comparison to their previous albums, 'WAP' presents us with fine tracks and elaborated lyrics centered around an european setting, typical of the band.

Best track(s): Armistice, Lasso, Rome, Countdown, Girlfriend

Worst track(s): none
