Album Review

Winner of the 11th season of American Idol — aka, the last season to feature Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez as judges — Phillip Phillips doesn't strictly seem like a pop star, probably because he doesn't sing pop music. Phillips is in thrall to his idol Dave Matthews, patterning every little detail of his style after the jam band icon, borrowing the stuttering acoustic strums and elastic vocal phrasing, letting his folk-rock wander into jazz and smooth soul. So many elements of Phillips' 2012 post-Idol debut The World from the Side of the Moon are taken from early Dave Matthews Band albums it could easily be mistaken for a forgotten DMB record from 1997. Phillips favors both the loverman croon of Matthews ("Wanted Is Love," "A Fool's Dance") and DMB's raucous party tunes ("Get Up Get Down," written in the style of "Ants Marching") and, it has to be said, he nails his impression, getting each minor inflection precisely right. Consequently, The World from the Side of the Moon delivers upon Phillips' promise: it is a streamlined, smoothed-out Dave Matthews Band album, stripped of any of DMB's idiosyncratic quirks and instrumental virtuosity. [A Deluxe Edition of the album added three bonus cuts.]

Awesome debut album

Phillip lucked out with a coronation song that fitted his musical style perfectly. I'm glad Phillip and the Idol producers went in that direction, as this album is awesome. I know the songs remind me of Mumford and Sons and Dave Matthews but they are still good songs. A lot better than most of the trash that has been ruling the charts in the last few years.


Great album, like a combination of Dave Mathews and Mumford and sons but more so the former. Really great, looking forward to future releases.


been a fan of Phillip's right from the first day I saw him on American Idol and am blown away by his album. Such an incredible release.
