Editorial Reviews

Often regarded as the best Riverdales record, "PHASE 3" comes back better than ever. Completely re-mixed, re-mastered, re-done vocals, added harmonies, and 5 unreleased songs gives this album brand new life. With Ben Weasel and Danny Vapid trading off on lead vocal duties, Phase Three is a punk rock classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm so sorry i can't.... February 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The riverdales found their own sound. This record is as good as the first two ones, and it's got its own personality. It's not just a Ramones rip-off...(don't get me wrong, the Ramones are my favorite band...)

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the bunch! June 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A lot have people have really slammed recent Screeching Weasel albums saying Ben Weasel can't write good tunes anymore and is only doing it for the money. While I can't say I totally disagree, when you hear a record like this, it's clear Ben has not lost his touch for crafting catchy as hell Ramones rip-off songs. Actually, maybe he has and all the credit should be given to Dan Schafer but let's not split hairs here because this record smokes!

For those of you not familiar with the Riverdales, this is basically Ben's tribute band to the Ramones but instead of covering their songs they write original ones that sound just like Ramones songs. Sometimes they sound so similar to the it's hard not to get them mixed up with real Ramones songs but where the Ramones drifted off course in later years with metal tinged albums like "Too Tough To Die", Riverdales stay on target to the vintage early period Ramones sound from start to finish, album after album.

As would be expected of a band so closely tied to the sound of another band (and even worse, a particular period of said band), you wouldn't be crazy to think this could get really derivative and really boring really fast. Certainly that charge has been leveled against the Riverdales from the beginning as they employ the same simple song structure and basic approach of the Ramones but the Riverdales do offer a unique, satisfying take on that classic sound. However, everything doesn't turn up roses every time. Truth be told a couple of the ballads on Phase Three drag a little but these type of songs have plagued preceding Riverdales records so that should be no surprise to long time fans. What is a surprise is the how much the ante has been upped from their last record in terms of stuck in your head choruses and big guitar hooks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darn good! November 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
EDIT: This review is in reference to the original release of "Phase Three," the 12 track long album on 1-4-5 records, and NOT the Asian Man records reissue. Since amazon considers this version and the re-issue to be the same product, you can find my review for the Asian Man re-issue attached below this review.

Anyway...

This one is much better than Storm The Streets, as the songs are actually well written.

Its short (like 24 minutes or something like that), but its a good ride while it lasts. "Homesick" is now my favorite Riverdales song, "Look Me Up" and "I Believe In You And Me" are downright beautiful punk ballads that do a good job at capturing the naked honesty of similar Ramones songs like "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" and "I Want You Around." It all ends with "Last Stop Tokyo" which is an absolutely great song. The rest of the album isn't as memorable, but its still pretty good, making for a solid listening experience. Overall its a darker album than the previous two, with a re-occurring theme of secret agent stuff poking its head up in some songs ("Last Stop Tokyo," "A.W.O.M," "Tick Tick Tick," "Sniper," etc).

I should also mention the production, which is stellar. Mass Gorgini did a great job, the production is loud and warm, without sounding over produced.

And they have a new drummer on this one, Dan Lumely from Squirtgun replaced Dan Sullivan. It doesn't really matter, they both did a good job. I bring it up because this means that of the four total people who have been in the Riverdales (a three piece band), three of them have had the name Dan. Weird.

Anyway, long story short, if you like the Riverdales, Screeching Weasel, and/or the Ramones, this is another good album to add to your collection.

"The idea of setting yourself up as a derivative band is a road that leads nowhere" - Frank Zappa. At least Weasel doesn't talk about meditation and drop the names of famous authors and philosophers who "influenced" his writing on this one. Riverdales, Black Crowes, Yngwie Malmsteen, what's the difference? Oh yeah, Malmsteen is introverted and unprententious in comparison.
