Laced throughout all of it are generous, wide-eyed melodies of a kind that makes for swooning sighs and curious feelings of instant nostalgia.

Phoenix make adjustments on the polarizing characteristics of their second and third albums ... with some of the most direct and enjoyable songs they've made to date.

I WAS RECENTLY TAKING A TOUR OF ALL THE STUFF I USED TO LISTEN TO FROM 2011-2014 AND THIS IS PROBABLY THE ONLY ALBUM THAT I STILL LIKE JUST AS MUCH.

AMERICAN IDIOT - EEEHHHHHH
DOOKIE - ACTUALLY STILL KICKS ASS BUT IT'S NOT QUITE LITERALLY JESUS
A FEVER YOU CAN'T SWEAT OUT - SHIT
SAVE ROCK AND ROLL - SHIT
ENCORE AND RECOVERY - FUCK OFF
THIS ALBUM - STILL FUCKING RIPS

Holy moly rolly polly! This was fucking fun! There wasn't a single thing that let me down on this record and the pacing is just superb! "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" is also one of the most gorgeously-produced and crisply-textured indie records I've ever heard! Not to mention it's deliciously infectious and exquisitely written...

Listening to this album is like falling into a ball pit and drowning in all the absurd colors it contains. Truly a gorgeous indie pop record with a lot of catchy tunes and enjoyable moments. It really never gets old.
