Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix



       Generally if a band's music is used in commercials that must mean its inoffensive enough for the general public (although The Clash has been used to sell Jaguars, so who knows). Add to the mix that Phoenix is French, and what do you get? A mediocre synthpop record that gets in your head and won't go away.

        Everyone has heard Lizstomania and 1901 on the TV at some point, and that's pretty much the only reason to listen to this album, well unless you need some Muzak to play in the background.
