Review of Phoenix – Bankrupt! (Universal Music Canada)

PhoenixAfter finally breaking through with their amazing 2009 record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, France’s best electro-pop band Phoenix return with the highly anticipated follow-up, Bankrupt. The album starts with the electrifying first single Entertainment and frankly, just gets better from there with the 80’s influence prevalent on Trying To Be Cool and Drakkar Noir.  Although I found Bankrupt didn’t quite have the same immediate impact of their previous album, it grew on me considerably with repeated listens. All hail one of the most exciting bands of the last decade.
