Review by burritounit
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars One of the best albums of 2008.

Lite is a math rock band from Japan with a very optimistic sound, post rock influences and a much moved/dynamic nature. It's not every day where you get a math rock band with such an addictive and unique sound, high quality and to say the least with incredible "danceable" energy (easy way to describe their sound). Phantasia is an album with barely no flaws, all the songs have their own essence and peculiar-catchy rhythm like Ghost Dance, Black And White, Solitude and Phantasia to point out a few.

Though being a math rock band, some of the songs seem to be driven by a post rock atmosphere in songs like Shinkai, Interlude, Solitude and Fade. This combination creates a balance and thus making their sound more melodic unlike other math rock bands that tend to create angular melodies.

The introductory song: Ef is one that easily catches the attention of your ears entirely with some sort of heavy riffs and intense drum play (though most songs have this energy outburst of the drummer). Black And White is very good to, with a very post rock oriented intro repeated in the midst of the ending. On the other hand Shinkai has a very atmospheric feel with a crescendo feel in it, as well as Solitude which follows a similar formula. In my opinion one the most standout songs would have to be Ghost Dance. It has the most "danceable" feel in it, just as its name implies, easily followed by Phantasia, which is even more energetic and explosive and the drums are very extreme. The closing song: Sequel to The Letter and Infinite Mirror remind me much of Battles but with a more melodic touch in them and that particular essence that Lite offer.

In conclusion Phantasia is easily one of the best albums of 2008. It's addictive, energetic, melodic and very well composed with many memorable moments. If you liked Battles then you will have no problem loving this one.

Highly recommended!

4 stars Post-rock is easily one of the most active and diverse sub-genres going in prog rock today. I've only begun to crack underneath the surface. It's pretty telling how low the exposure is if albums with a scant 20-30 reviews can crack the top 20 here on PA though. That doesn't mean those selections ... (read more)

4 stars What caught my attention about PHANTASIA, firsthand; was the guitar counterpointing structures they build around basic (not simple) Rock n Roll riffs. "California Guitar Trio" like; but eletcrified; and around their own compositions. So; of course they are not discovering "fire"; but they play wel ... (read more)
