All lyrics from Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix album, popular Phoenix songs with tracklist and information about album.

Future Music visit the incredible studio of Cassius member and production genius, Philippe Zdar.

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is the fourth studio album by French indie pop band Phoenix. It was released on 25 May 2009 by V2 Records. While the band's previous work enjoyed a moderate underground following, the release of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix drew the attention of a more mainstream audience. In the US, Phoenix began a promotional tour including performances on several late night talk shows. Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix continued to gain momentum with the increased exposure of the tour

Realigned with Philippe Zdar, the half of Cassius who mixed United, Phoenix make adjustments on the polarizing characteristics of their second and third albums - the pokey and occasionally listless Alphabetical, the jagged and tune-deficient It's Never Been Like That - with some of the most direct and enjoyable songs they've made to date. The two opening songs, the bopping "Lisztomania" and the buzzing "1901," are so immediate and prone to habitual play that the remainder of the album is bound to be neglected.

With their fourth album, Phoenix reference both composers and hone in on an elusive target somewhere between Mozart's formal wonders and Listz's dramatic flair. While the album's 10 songs are arranged and executed with virtuoso pop-rock precision, they chronicle nothing but angst, confusion, disappointment, and despair. Romantic; not disgusting yet," sings frontman Thomas Mars on opener "Lisztomania", sounding like a madman with two tiny creatures whispering into each ear. Mars keeps this treacherous divide in mind throughout Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, and the rest of the record successfully avoids mush while keeping its beating heart intact. And the issue of thematic directness is especially important to Phoenix- this is an established indie band writing songs about love that are armed with hooks primed for a mainstream embrace.

Listen free to Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (Lisztomania, 1901 and more). Hi Everyone, Hope all is well as we roll into another weekend. We obviously couldn't help noticing that the record has leaked early and that some of you have already heard it. We're happy to hear everybody is enjoying the tracks. We know some people download.

They're pleasure-pushers, filling tunes with riffs, phrases, and beats a five-year-old could love. But, on Wolfgang, those same songs are unfulfilled-and this band wouldn't have it any other way. There's beauty in a sunset. Phoenix are wringing it ou.

I Was recently taking a tour of all the stuff I used to listen to from 2011-2014 and this is probably the only album that I still like just as much. American idiot - eeehhhhhh dookie - actually still kicks ass but IT'S not quite literally jesus a fever you can't sweat out - shit save rock and roll - shit encore and recovery - fuck off this album - still fucking rips.
