Review

The major label debut from punkpoprockers Acceptance is a huge facelift compared to their EP "Black lines to battlefields",this new album contains better songs and a better production which isn?t so hard to understand since they had a bigger budget to work with.
Producer Aaron Sprinkle has done a remarkable good job as always with his works - so crispy and fresh!
It?s also wrong to call their music for punkpop coz you can also add some energetic modern rock in there as well,"Phantoms" is a very strong album that contains a bunch of hit single contenders - I don?t think that this Seattle based quintet should worry too much coz with songs like "Take cover","Over you","The letter" and "Breathless" - Acceptance could very well be the next big thing.
The group released an indie EP, Lost For Words, in 1999, and caught the ear of Columbia Records A&R executive (and iconic former host of MTV?s pioneering "120 Minutes") Matt Pinfield with a five-song demo (that would later form the core of Black Lines to Battlefields).
Are you a fan of Lit and SR 71 ? - well then this album should be in your collection as well coz this is a band to watch!!

A sibling to Anberlin, Mae and The Fold. I would say, this is closer to the emo genre than the punk genre, if you listen to the very melodic structure.
