It is very different... It's less upbeat I guess. But I still have to appreciate it, overall it is a good album. I heard Alphabetical first and so it was a bit surprise when WAP and NBLT came out and were more towards sunshine and rainbows.
Yeah. Phoenix are like that... Sometimes they make me feel really upbeat and other times they make me melancholic. But they have the energy and enthusiasm live that just oozes that all away. Ahhhh Napoleon Says is one of my fav tracks on there too!
Hiya! Finally got around to listening to It's Never Been Like That. I think I'll need to give it a few more listens, but I like it! The melodies put me in quite a cheerful mood (even if some of the lyrics are kinda sad . . . ). So far, my favorites are Second to None, Napoleon Says, and Consolation Prizes.
That reminds me of my schoolmate who said "I should really stop going to so many concerts since I'm going broke, but I just can't stop." I have to content myself with YouTube videos, but it looks so amazing and fun to actually be there.
