    i'll say this, as of now the Horrors, Phoenix, and Grizzly Bearl hold my top 3 spots. I need to listen to the Blackout 2 album, I bought it yesterday also but I haven't listened to it yet.

    So far I enjoy the new Phoenix more than Grizzly Bear as well but Phoenix is more poppy, upbeat and has mementum that just builds throughout. It's such a fun rock album. I'm not sure how it compares to Grizzly Bear but over time Grizzly might overtake it. Phoenix has instant catchyness and Grizzly Bear has better instrumentation and musical arrangments. I haven't listened enough to know where it will rank anywhere though.

    Grizzly Bear is less along the lines of my usual tastes. I can totally appreciate it's greatness, but the chamber pop wears on me as the album goes on. I've been able to listen to the whole thing without feeling lulls in the momentum more and more, but Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is still my #1 for the year. Perfectly executed pop with just the right amount of electronics and great lyrics. Another thing that impresses me is the fact that it is such a concise album, and arrangements don't add anything unneeded.

    Based on the new songs I heard, Massive Attack's new album might it give it a run for it's money, but we'll see this fall.

    This album just gets better every listen, favorite of the year thus far. I too wish they were playing Fences, but their live show has so much energy that I think that song might not mesh as well with their set... Can't believe how much fucking fun they were at the Roo, not to mention how perfect they sounded. SEE THIS BAND ASAP!

    i skimmed the set lists documented in this thread: http://wearephoenix.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146. "Fences" is absent from all. there's still a chance (slim as it may be) that they'll bust out "Fences" later in the tour though...

    At least I know what to expect now. I would be sooo disappointed if I expected them to play it and then they didn't.

    I was a bit upset they didn't play this, but after you see them you won't really care. Top 3 set for me at roo.

    I've been obsessed with the album since the leak. Fences is actually probably my least favorite on the album (not that I don't like it, the album's just that good). It's just tough to beat songs like Love Like a Sunset, Rome, Lasso, Lisztomania...for me, anyway.

    So excited for the Wiltern show.

    CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO "WOLFGANG AMADEUS PHOENIX"!!!

    Are their previous releases worth checking out?

    Thats the last one right? I didnt even realize until I saw them at Bonnaroo that they did the song on the "Lost in Translation" soundtrack. I had that album burned so I never knew who sang it, it was a very pleasant surprise to say the least

    It's Never Been Like That is the album immediately preceding Wolfgang...the Lost In Translation song you're referring to comes from their debut album United. their debut is worth a listen, especially for this sexy beast of a song

    Oh goodness, they played NYC the 25th and 26th and since I didn't have tickets I still went to Central Park to hear the show.

    Their encore was pretty damn good (I just wish I could remember one of the songs they played):
    a cover of Playground Love
    Too Young
    (the song I can't remember for the life of me)
    1901

    but yes, whenever I hear 1901 or Fences I want to shake it.

    I finally heard this when a friend put it on in the car. Great stuff! Last time I'd heard Phoenix was United, which is nearly unlistenable except for 2 obvious gems. I will now pick up their last disc also... my understanding is that the second one is more light-listening pseudo kenny g tripe with a few great songs?

    permit me to rank the albums according to my tastes:
    WAP > INBLT > A > U

    their debut and sophmore have some GREAT songs, but overall, aren't as consistent as their two most recent albums. WAP & INBLT have little to no filler in my opinion.

    Does anybody know if Thomas played or still plays with Air? I swear I saw him on an episode of Jools Holland with Pulp. He was singing a little and playing drums.

    i highly doubt that Mars still plays w/ Air, probably doesn't have the time. Phoenix used to be the backing band for Air. but that was eons ago. were you watching an old episode of Jools? or were you watching a performance of Air's "Playground Love" which Mars sings on?

    and if a studio version manifests, expect this to be played ad nauseam on your favorite frat-rock radio station

    It was an old episode of Jools. Air, Pulp and Lenny Kravitz.
