    Read Review

    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   The Music

    This record is the sweetest and freshest breath of air imaginable
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    All ten of the album's songs overflow with sparkling synths, sighing pop hooks and made-for-summer beats
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   DIY

    It finds Phoenix in their most unabashedly romantic mood to date
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   NOW

    The most summery music they’ve ever made
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   Q

    As the sound of a band revelling in what they do best, it makes for an album that's up there with their most purely enjoyable. Print edition only

  9. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Another engaging record full of escapism and optimism. It’s just what we need from them
    Read Review

  10. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Touches upon these troubled times in a way that feels like a genuine commentary as opposed to willfully ignorant escapism
    Read Review

  11. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    Music to dance to, and dark as the world might appear, no one's stopping Phoenix having fun
    Read Review

  12. 7.0 |   Pitchfork

    A romantic, glossy, soft-pop ode to sweet escapes and dance floors, though at times their pleasure-seeking falls flat
    Read Review

  13. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Even when you can't tell what Mars is singing about (which is a lot), the music radiates a suave majesty that feels universal
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   music OMH

    Phoenix must hope that what their latest album offers is enough to convert first-time listeners into fans
    Read Review

  15. 6.8 |   Earbuddy

    Phoenix sound like they’re having fun again. And as a result, we’re having fun too
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Sits nicely within the band’s discography and will no doubt be remixed with ease and contribute to summer playlists
    Read Review

  17. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    It’s a testament to the bulletproof configuration of Phoenix’s template that ‘Ti Amo’ is still a rather infectious, enjoyable album
    Read Review

  18. 6.0 |   The FT

    Songs are bright and breezy, a dolce vita of vibrant synths, splashy beats and sunny melodies
    Read Review

  19. 6.0 |   The Observer

    While Ti Amo is slow to reveal its charms, there are moments when the cheesy concept – a romanticised version of Italy – is made to seem like a brilliant idea
    Read Review

  20. 6.0 |   Mojo

    With everyone now doing '80s-dance-pop, these Parisians seem more veteran than hipster on this set of Italo-disco and sophisticated pop. Print edition only

  21. 6.0 |   Uncut

    A light summer picnic, not a full meal. Print edition only

  22. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    An album from a sussed band who know that making art is one way to counteract those who wage hate and disharmony
    Read Review

  23. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Kings of cool blow hot and cold
    Read Review

  24. 5.9 |   AU Review

    Sadly, unlike Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, you won’t be listening to it years after its release
    Read Review

  25. 5.8 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    The fact is, Phoenix already made the quintessential summer record eight years ago; for all Ti Amo tries to recapture that magic, the inconsequential sweetness it provides fades as quickly as the delicacy Mars sings about in “Fior di Latte”
    Read Review

  26. 5.8 |   A.V. Club

    Maybe it’s a pleasant diversion for band and audience, which is fine—it’s just never much more than that
    Read Review

  27. 5.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    Breezes along at an inoffensive clip
    Read Review

  28. 5.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It’s all very impressive at first, but the excitement quickly tires
    Read Review

  29. 4.0 |   The Skinny

    The band took all the wrong lessons from the success of their last album, and doubled down on the syrup. Turns out too much sugar really can make you sick
