I have been meaning to check this out. I have heard lack luster results but I'm still curious. Good job though Jeremy.

After the he released his first single I had very high hopes for this album. Even though it didn't necessarily live up to them I can't dislike it. I find myself loving whatever Julian does. There are a few tracks that made me cringe, one of them being "River of Breaklights," but for the most part I enjoyed this album.

I agree with this review. I really like the single, but I think the majority of this release just has too much going on and is way over my head

Humm. Still very undecided on this. Long tracks with a lot of different things going on, but it's by no means a poor album.

I like this record a lot, but I get mildly annoyed every time I hear the Brian May (Queen) guitar rip-offs.

Good Review. I lol'd at the RIYL section and seeing Phoenix there. I always thought of them as being a Strokes cover band, and to say the lead singer of the Strokes sounds like them made me laugh a bit. Both great bands still.

Still think 11th Dimension is a fantastic song. Not sold on the rest of the record though, except maybe River of Brakelights and 4 Chords.

they formed at the same time. i'd say phoenix has way more going on than the strokes, musically.

but still, why do people even compare the two?
