Phantom Planet
Phantom Planet



Phantom Planet singer Alex Greenwald breaks the seal of their self-titled release with a rather common lyric: there's nothing for me here. A lyric this universal isn't so convincing in an industry that's as cliched as music's, and that would hold truer for a band best known for shimmering the teen soap opera The O.C., with their sunny hit "California".

However, when Greenwald and company escape the breezy SoCal fantasia of 2001's The Guest for the vexatious realm of their third album, it works.

Plantom Planet, a band named for a random 60's Sci-Fi B Flick, change their band members as well on the new album. Jeff Conrad has replaced longtime drummer Jason Schwartzman, who's chosen to pursue acting full time. Schwartzman, whose fame in Hollywood includes Rushmore, Spun, and Slackers, appears on half of the album, including "You're Not Welcome Here", a song he co-wrote with Greenwald about the lead singer's ex-girlfriend.

"By the Bed" and "After Hours" revist some of The Guest's dejected romanticism with the aid of Greenwald's melancholic weakly-sung verses, the most striking within his repertoire. The lead singer announces on first single "Big Brat" that these times get tough, and they certainly do on Phantom Planet, as the band escapes their utopian "California" for a more rugged reality.
