6/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 October 2010

Both myself and Brian remember liking a Phantom Band album from the past but neither can remember much about it or how it differs from this one. This is a collection of sludgy Scottish rock and roll with heavy nods towards Clinic, Sons and Daughters,and mid period Depeche Mode. Its all a bit gothy and serious at times, but there are some pretty impressive things going on especially with track 3 "Everybody Knows its True" with clever chopped up vocals, marimbas and accordions. Overall its hard to get a handle on what they are trying to do as it veers from Nick Cave like ballads to Neu-influenced dark rockers within the blink of an eye, sometimes coming across as a mellower and more German influenced Twilight Sad. Occasionally this really hits the mark and could well be an album that unfurls itself after a few listens. Warning - do not confuse with the post - Can band of the same name.


9/10 Mike Luttmann Customer review, 23rd July 2014

'The Wants' is what I've been saying for a while since I've had a friend play them during a camping trip, thankfully an LP of them exits.

Their various instrumental sounds work well with their almost metal beats and dry but heart-pounding grunge vocals.

Certainly a UK rock origin moved into something completely fresh and new, with face melting riffs from 'A Glamour' and clever words from 'Everybody knows it's true.'

Almost every song is a gem so this album really feels worth it, certainly makes me want to do some ghost hunting for The Phantom Band's other albums.
