3 stars Fiendish was my introduction to Phideaux and it stands as an excellent example of how music can just be trouble-free symphonic, sweet, agreeable and still, simply beautiful. Phideaux serves a mix of Stupid Dream-alike Porcupine Tree with early 70's Bowie and a discreet stuffing of early Floyd psychedellica. There's also a folksy element, for a song like Headstones I'd even dare to refer to Simon and Garfunkle.

By consequence it doesn't excel in originality but it is written and executed very well. All songs are pleasant, though I could live without Little Monster. Hight points are Vultures and Mosquitos, the space rock of Soundblast and Phideaux's take on Collapse The Light named Space Brother. 3.5 stars.
