PHOENIX, WOLFGANG AMADEUS PHOENIX
Phoenix, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix [Loyaute/Glassnote]
Our rating: 4.5 out of a possible 5
Mixing dance-floor verve with meaningful songwriting is a risky proposition, but this Paris electronic-pop quartet strike the perfect balance on their fourth studio album. On songs like "1901," sharp observations about love mingle with piercing guitar, while "Lasso"with its Cure-on-Ecstasy energyprovides a buzz that'll last long after the final track's done.
