Marianas Trench

Phantoms
Artwork

Another concept album from Marianas Trench comes in the form of Phantoms, an album about living in a house that's haunted by a former love. Like previous Marianas Trench albums, it's heavy on production, heavy on the killer voice of Josh Ramsay, filled with sweet harmonies, and sweeter melodies. There are a few surprises smattered throughout to keep fans entertained too.

Phantoms is just as good as Astoria, and that's really saying something. That said, it's noticeably different on a few fronts from the band's previous works. The album opens with an acapella song in "Eleonora" and capitalizes on a lot of layers of production. They're also using a lot of melodies that they haven't really used before, which is a nice overall touch for Ramsay and his crew.

There's also a lot of similarities to the band's previous work, and really Marianas Trench wouldn't be the same without some of those traits. There's a lot of nananans, ooohoooo, ooooos, and other vocal scatting that's catchy as hell. There's also a lot of busy production that keeps there from being any kind of dull moment on the album.

Phantoms is another great album from Marianas Trench. Yeah, it's a very standard album from these guys, but they do enough in terms of creativity and effort that their standard isn't really close to anyone else’s.
