5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from Phoenix April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
Phoenix is such a dynamic group and they have really suprised me with this new CD of theirs. It's so different from their last one but it absolutely carries the signature of this awesome band. Not many bands can do what Phoenix did and come out with a completely different "groove" on a CD and have it sound better than the first. Phoenix is definitely my favorite band now. My favorite songs on the album are "Love for Granted", "If it's not with you", and "Holdin' on Together". But, the whole album is really good and a totally fun CD to listen to, I highly suggest purchasing it if you are a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alphabetical Order April 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a great record this is! Music for people who love to groove, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of a decimated popmusic scene. It's impossible to stay still whilst listening to this album, the songs are just too catchy!
Highlights: Everything Is Everything, Run Run Run, Holdin' On Together. But the whole album is lush!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the revival of seventies brilliant popmusic, remembering Steely Dan, now in a modern french glance of crispy arrangments standing on a stable rockground with wonderful melodies. Goes 8 hours a day. Strongly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Sophomore Effort Aug. 20 2004
By B Bozarth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I just got this album and have been listening to it non-stop. I enjoyed United a great deal thanks to Lost in Translation of course, but Alphabetical is a superb album in many respects. It's happy feel-good music that makes you want to dance! After I play it - I need to play Everything Is Everything and Holdin' It Together one more time. Those are my favorite tracks - then I need to play the whole thing again and again.

I haven't heard anything quite like this group. Each track has a number of different, unique grooves and I love how the lyrics kind of roll with it and play with different styles. It takes a lot of disco, some eighties, and electronica then spins it into a new thing all its' own. Pop at its' finest. This album should be making some waves.

The album is quite good as a whole and much more cohesive. Maybe nothing as memorable as Too Young - United has some super stand out tracks but a couple were off the wall. It's very rare for a second to top the first - to continue the sound but yet take it to new levels. Usually I am disappointed. If you liked the debut, then get this album!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars fine album Phoenix Alphabetical Feb. 24 2005
By joe larkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Before Air became America's favorite French duo, Phoenix were their backing band. So when the former indie punks from the Paris suburbs debuted with 2000's United, the surprise was that they sounded neither particularly electronic nor French - singer Thomas Mars, who might have hailed from L.A. or London, had the uncanny ability to sing feverishly and tenderly in English. Alphabetical, coming after the quartet's dazzling single "Too Young" fired the karaoke scene in Lost in Translation, extends the band's blurring of '70s pop-rock intimacy and warm rhythms. From "Everything Is Everything" - which jumps with the acoustic sparkle of AM radio - to more contemplative ballads such as "(You Can't Blame It On) Anybody," these songs create a series of vivid but minimal soundscapes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 2nd Album March 14 2006
By Demon Deacon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Phoenix is one of my favorite bands because of the way that their songs make you feel. You feel better after just hearing a few minutes worth of their music. Alphabetical continues right where their first album United left off.

1. Everything is Everything- My favorite song on the album. Pop perfection. 10/10
2. Run Run Run- Another great song by this amazing French band. 9.5/10
3. I'm An Actor- A Darker sounding tune than the usual phenix song. Still very good. 8.5/10
4. Love For Granted- A slower song which has great backing vocals. 8/10
5. Victim Of The Crime- Another standout track by Phoenix. I like the lyrics on this one a lot. 9.5/10
6. (You Can Blame It On) Anybody- My favorite harmonies of the album are on this song. Great 9/10
7. Congratulations- An instrumental track which is pretty sweet, but i'm not gonna rate it because it is only a minute long.
8. If It's Not With You- Very chill track. Just soak it in. 8.5/10
9. Holdin' On Together- A disco sounding song which has good lyrics and cool synthesizer sounds. 9/10
10. Alphabetical- The title track is the longest one on the album and is very very good. It even has a hidden instrumental sequence at the end. A great way to end a fantastic album. 9.25/10

Phoenix is definitely the best French Pop band going right now. Their 3rd album comes out on May 15th of this year, get excited.

Overall: 9/10, 5 Stars
