I have to admit, I am a 35 year old guy from NoCal who heard the song "California" on the movie "Orange County", and after singing it incessantly for 3 days I went out and bought the CD.
It is a solid college rock album. Reminds me of Ben Folds Five, Semisonic, the Connells etc. A little bit of everything thrown into the pot, stirred around with catchy lyrics, and upbeat music and it works. I really like this album.
"California" is the piano driven track that rocks. "Lonely Day" is about that mood we all can relate to, but smile about it all the while.
Personally, I think track#7 "turn, smile, shift, repeat" is the best song on the CD. You get the feeling that these are some competent musicians who have some talent and also can put a lot of feelings into song. Sometimes you just don't feel like talking, and "The Guest" speaks for us on days like that.
There is this youthful exuberance that pervades the entire project. Yes, we all get confused, angry and sad. But when you think about it, who doesn't?
2 thumbs up for a solid college band that actually rocks. Forget about P-Diddy remixes, Korn, and J-Lo. This is real music for "real" people. You owe it to yourself to check this out.

Why do so many people dislike Phantom Planet...and laugh when they say that I like them? Are pretty boys not allowed to rock...or pop-rock at least? You think the production of Mitchell Froom & Tchad Blake (Cibo Matto, Sheryl Crow, Crowded House, Ed Harcourt, Pretenders, Ron Sexsmith, Suzanne Vega, Tom Waits, the list really does go on & on) would've at least given them a little more respect. The Guest, in my book, is the best and most palatable of all these alternative-pop-rock acts that came out last year. I think Brian thought a little strangely of me for picking up this cd in the Boston Virgin Megastore but I think he got won over by them. We tried to see them later that fall at the Black Cat only to walk up to the line and realize that the show had sold out ahead of time. Hopefully the same won't happen with their upcoming show here in the DC area. (Best of luck in finding the double-disc version of The Guest with the unreleased title track, and live cuts of "Do The Panic" & "California." Even more luck in also finding the 5-song live promo that was released before the actual cd too. If you're nice, I might tell you who has it. ;-)
"California" was the best thing about the ads for Fox's OC. Lead singer Alexander Greenwald even inflects a little country twang on "Always On My Mind" and "Nobody's Fault." I don't go a week without finding myself singing "Lonely Day" at least twice to myself...even without having listened to the cd in several months. There was a time too, in my more tortured moments, where "One Ray Of Sunlight" was my favorite of the tracks on here with the chorus of, "Try all you want to / I'm gonna try too / If I get one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand / Maybe we can be happy again." "Anthem" could be a postmodern protest song if played in the local football stadium's PA.

i have been waiting for the latest phantom planet cd to finally arrive and couldnt be happier with this newest creation. the source of my happiness mainly comes from the unexpected contrast between the two albums. The Guest has more slowed down songs with catchy beats and a more laidback feel. especially note 'turn smile shift repeat' one of my favorites on the album. also enjoyed are 'one ray of sunlight' and 'hey now girl', but to choose favorites here is too hard, so the whole cd is notable and definently worth buying. this band is a great answer to the sad selection of mainstream radio play and are in my mind a mix between Weezer and the Monkees. just check em out, you can download the great single 'california' here for free, and i can almost guarentee your satisfaction.
