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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

This album is amazing I love Miniature Tigers and I just had to buy Mia Pharaoh. The shipping was pretty fast, but when I opened the package, the CD case was cracked, not too bad though. Even if the CD was cracked it is not the seller's fault and it doesn't affect how much I love this band :)

This is a good ass album. My favorite song from this album is Angel Bath. I recommend not only buying this CD, but other Miniature Tigers CDs.
