Reviewed by Marc on 04 May 2006

This is the third album from Phideaux I have had the chance to review and it is the most "radio friendly" of the three. 313 consists of thirteen short tracks that are quite catchy, even though this is clearly never done for commercial ambitions.

Listening to 313, I am tempted to ask the question: What would Allan Parsons Project sound like if David Bowie became their lead singer? The music on 313 is quite original, but answering the question would perhaps offer something close to what I can hear on this very good album.

If you are a fan of good 80's inspired Prog/Pop à la Allan Parsons Project or Mike Oldfiel, 313 comes highly recommended. Good stuff that merits to be heard by the widest audience possible.
