the Glow pt. 2 and Mount Eerie are unlike anything else. Two of the most unique albums ever. Phil is a gifted artist. I just wish he put even the slightest bit of effort into singing well.

One of the most unique and innovative artists out there. The Microphones released three masterpieces before Phil disbanded the project and began anew, with Mount Eerie (the band)

One of my favorite artists of all time. Phil is a true lyrical genius, his ability to capture that magical element his lyrics bring is something you don't see too often
