Music Phoenix. Can a French band really be this good?

    After years of making jokes about French pop music, wouldn't you know my favorite album of the last two years is by a French group? The band is Phoenix. the album is Lisztomania. And they really flummox me with a mixture of punk rock energy and progressive rock cleverness. Or is it the other way around.

    The singer with the sci-fi name, Thomas Mars, is unique in his non-rhyming schemes, and phrasing that sometimes has more in common with jazz than rock crooning.
    Here's a couple of tunes.

    I LOVE Phoenix! My fave song is Lasso so far from them, but I haven't really found a song I don't like.
