The sound is important but nothing is more important than the feeling of the sound. When Charlie Brand (vocals, guitar) was writing the newest Miniature Tigers record, he looked to the sum of his musical influences for inspiration. “I wanted to make something like Weezer’s Blue Album—not exactly the album, but the feeling of listening to that album at age whatever.

Editorial Reviews

Miniature Tigers' 3rd album Mia Pharaoh stands on the platform of years of development. Miniature Tigers toured with the likes of Neon Indian, Ben Folds, the morning benders, Tennis, and Walkmen to name a few and garnered much exposure over 2011 with music features in movies like Emma Stone's Easy A and multiple placements in MTV's "Teenwolf" and "Skins."

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Album May 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big fan of FORTRESS and a moderate fan of Tell It To The Volcano. At first I was taken aback by the synth dance pop sound of the album, especially the first track Sex on the Regular. The day after I listened to it some of the songs kept creeping back in my head. I went back and listened to it again and again. This is a really catchy album and I like the way it mellows out as it moves along into an almost funk/soul sound. By the time it hits Ugly Needs and Angel Bath I keep thinking, "Man, this is really good." As far as a pop album goes, this is better than most. I bought this, The Shins-Port of Morrow, The Spinto Band-Shy Pursuit and Death Cab-Codes and Keys at the same time. This is the album that stood out to me and made me want to listen on repeat.

2.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to love this; I just can't March 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
If you've listened to the previous Miniature Tiger albums, you know what to expect from them: melodic, catchy rock tunes. I mean, seriously, with songs like Cannibal Queen, Tell It To the Volcano, and Rock & Roll Mountain Troll under their belt, they all but cemented themselves as a band to be reckoned with (provided you like melodic, catchy rock). But in an unexpected turn, the boys from Arizona have decided to do their own version of an 80's homage project. Instead of building off of the previous foundation, they've taken a trip to left-field and infused their tunes with the standard tropes of 80's songs that made that musical era, well, terrible. Canned voices mix with soul/funk vocalist impressions, layered over bad synths and keyboard. And, worst of all, not a break-out track in the bunch.

I will give credit where credit is due. There are a few tracks that are entertaining to listen to and bump the score up from 2 to 2.5 out of 5 stars. Afternoons With David Hockney, Easy As All That, Flower Door, and Boomerang make for a nice return to form. However, unlike the classic tracks I mentioned before, these are mediocre--good if you like the band's overall sound, but not much punch. I could have definitely lived without 'em.

Last of all, regarding the Standard and Deluxe version: If you feel the need to avoid the warning and try this album anyway, save your money and buy the standard edition. Of the two extra tracks on the Deluxe Edition, only Hologram Girl is worth a listen--and that's only Miniature Tiger filler. Pleasure Princess, the other bonus track, suffers from the same fate as the rest of the standard album, but with that particular displeasure-inducing vocal effect Cher used in "Believe." I kid you not! I noticed Fun's new album used it too. Perhaps artists are under the impression we've forgotten how grating it was, but we haven't... We haven't...

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection October 18, 2012
By Jess
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Musical perfection. I can hardly describe it. My favorite songs on this album are "Flower Door", "Angel Bath", "Sex on the Regular", and "Boomerang". If I could, I'd say all of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars catchy danceable indie pop April 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
as always miniature tigers manages to bring out a infinitely danceable indie pop album. it's obvious they were influenced by 80's pop music most notably hall and oates. yes the album is a departure, but in all the right ways.

2.0 out of 5 stars Catchy, but lacks depth March 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed Sex on the Regular, but felt conflicted about many of the tracks that followed. I liked the thought of combining the sounds of The Beach Boys and Prince, but unlike Prince and The Beach Boys, there doesn't seem to be anything beneath the surface here. Then I started paying close attention to the lyrics.

"Baby, you make me crazy for you. Baby, I'm so crazy without you."

Did they really rhyme baby with crazy? It would be laughable if I didn't think they were serious. Unfortunately, they seem to be.

I'll listen to other albums by this band, but this one will probably only get one more listen or two before I completely forget about it.

I would recommend this to fans of of Montreal's funkier material, but only if they aren't put off by bad lyrics.
