PHANTOM PLANET IN ELLE (Jan. 2002)
This is a snippet of the whole article since the rest of it is about other CD picks.
BEST OF THE MONTH
Don't hate Phantom Planet just because they hail from planet Hollywood (singer Alex Greenwald appeared in the recent Donnie Darko, while drummer Jason Schwartzman stars in this month's Slackers). Instead, love them for stuffing their sweetly shambling Phantom Planet Was Here full of intelligent curves and surprising hooks: Imagine Pavement weaned on sincerity in lieu of irony, or Weezer embracing adulthood over adolescence. Out-of-this-world good. - MATT DIEHL
