I never expected to like Phantom Planet as much as I've grown to. When I first heard about them they'd been label a 'Garage Band', one of the few labels in rock that'll turn me off a band. But Raise The Dead is a well crafted album that truly displays their talent. I can't stop listening to it. I was taken in by Alex Greenwald's voice (that man can wail no doubt about it.) and Sam Farrar's deft bass lines. If Raise The Dead is the embodiment of the garage band sound then all the other garage band acts need to step up their game.
My favourites are hard to narrow done with this album. I think the top three would be 'Demon Daughters', 'Dropped' and 'Confess'. But there's truly no song on Raise The Dead that I don't enjoy.
