While it's true that you can't force inspiration, you might be able to rent it for a few weeks at a time - or so goes the logic behind the peripatetic recording process of Phoenix's new studio album. To write their new album the Gallic quartet decamped to various locales away from their home studio in Versailles, searching for the stimulus necessary to transform the new material into a coherent LP. "We spent a long time waiting for the chemical reaction," says guitarist Laurent Brancowitz, "that moment when a song isn't just the sum of all of our parts, but it's something more. And the idea was to go someplace we'd never been. Actually, they went to a few: Brancowitz and his bandmates Thomas Mars (vocals), Christian Mazzalai (guitar), and Deck D'Arcy (bass) worked in the Parisian studio of 19th-century Romantic painter Th?ore G?cault, chartered a houseboat on the Seine and stayed at the Bowery Hotel in New York City for a month, among others. As the guitarist explains with self-effacing humour, "It was like our Orson Welles moment.

Only really heard this band when two of there songs (Lisztomania & 1901) was released on rock band but from just those two songs I know this band will go far.

This is particularly good considering its the special edition heat added.

Great band, brilliant live, well worth the pennies!

Brilliant album!

Excellent album which won a Grammy this year and is a bargain at a fiver including the remix album!

Phoenix have got better and better over the years and I remember first getting into them after hearing the song Too Young in the film Shallow Hal. This is their best album

Amazing.
Well worth seeing live too.

This is a brilliant album at a great price!

It's been this price for a couple of months. When I bought it, the standard one disc version was £6.99 on hmv.com, so getting the 2discer for £4.99 was a no-brainer.
I love remixes but these were a bit disapointing, most aint as good as the originals. but hey as I said above its worth getting, given you'd pay more for the standard version.

great band, great album!
