    As much as I love Reach the Beach I feel that Phantoms is where they reached their creative peak. It’s a shame they couldn’t follow it’s more experimental leanings in the future.

    Phantoms is a swansong of a record. The threat of impending nuclear annihilation hangs over this band like a heavy wet cloud, on almost all their records. Maybe Phantoms is the story of our spirit shadows walking hungrily among the remnants of our civilization on earth and in heaven?
    Reach the Beach is a more accessible record more catchy songs I would guess.
    Walkabout is just as excellent maybe more so than Phantoms and The Shuttered room is almost as good.
