EDITORS’ NOTES

It may have been made in the wake of an international breakthrough (namely, the ripple effect of “Too Young” lighting up 2003’s Lost In Translation) but Phoenix’s follow-up largely trades sprightly garage rock for something softer, subtler, and smoother. It’s a bold attempt to recreate the ‘80s pop that first entranced these Versailles schoolfriends (see the snapping yacht-ready groove of “Run, Run, Run”). A concise, deceptively complex gamble that pays off handsomely.

Am I the only one who loves this track? I don’t know why, but it is by far my favorite on the album.
