Phoenix - United - 2000

The 2000 debut from the French band Phoenix gleefully combines the electronic- laced melodicism of their fellow countrymen Air with the sensibilities of 1980s UK pop (in the mode of China Crisis and Prefab Sprout) and imbues the results with a dance-floor sensibility. Toss in a bit of classic '70s stadium rock and tongue-in-cheek country, and you have UNITED, a Frankenstein's monster of a record, guaranteed to have something to please nearly any ear.

Psst, Curty...

You've misspelled the name of the album in the blog post title. It's "Untied" when you meant "United".

Go ahead and delete this post after you fix it and no one will be the wiser...

Thanks a hundredfold for great music man, it's an incredible treasure trove.
