Phoenixalben zu rezensieren verstehe ich als Pflicht. Offiziell kann man „Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix“ erst im Ende Mai erwerben. Wer sich die Mühe macht und das Netz durchsurft, findet allerdings in ziemlich kurzer Zeit alle 10 Tracks des Albums verstreut auf den Indieblogs dieser Welt zum Vorhören.

Produziert wurde von Cassius-Mitglied Philippe „Zdar“ Cerboneschi, der auch schon „United“ zusammengestöpselt hat. Und das hört man auch. Das stark analoge letzte Album liegt dem neuen Longplayer ferner als die ersten Veröffentlichungen der Franzosen.

Die Grundstimmung ist posititv. Hübsch anzusehen, wenn auch relativ belanglos eröffnet „Liztomania“ die Platte. Gleich darauf das bereits erwähnte Preview „1901“ – ein typischer Phoenix. Mit hochgestellten Pring-Pring-Pring-Gitarren und der Wiederholung als Stilelement. Der Long Distance Call ist hier wirklich nicht weit.

Dann aber: „Fences“. Hier bemerkt man erstmals ganz deutlich, dass das Instrumentarium vor der Aufnahme gestimmt, entstaubt und verchromt wurde. Ein so tyisches Stilelement vom „Alphabetical“-Album. Knackig und kontrolliert verfranzt und beseelt von Coolness. Das Stück hat Magie, die es mehr durch den Sound als durch das Arrangement, bezieht.

Ein wenig stoisch kommt dann „Love Like A Sunset“ daher. Ein Klavier, ein Klavier. Aber alles andere als eine Ballade. 1:30 Geräusch. Unbestimmte Bretzel-Bässe hier, eine Akustik-Gitarre mit Turretsyndrom da. Klingt eher nach dem Soundprolog eines Konzerts als nach einem Albumtrack. Bei Minute 4 nimmt der Track dann – immer noch ein wenig richtungslos – Fahrt auf. Vielleicht hab ich nicht die Ruhe, aber dieser Titel ist ärgerlich, gerade weil „Wolfgang Amadeus“ mal wieder über nur 10 Tracks verfügt.

Glücklicherweise geht es dann wieder in das altbekannte Phoenix-Tempo – das „Lasso“ wird geschwungen. Die charakteristische Achtelgitarre begleitet auch das völlig entspannte „Rome“. Gut, dass es dann mit „Countdown“ und „Girlfriend“ gegen Ende noch einmal zwei etwas unpoliertere Songs gibt. Das etwas Ungenaue, das „It’s Never Been Like That“ für mich zunächst etwas unzugänglich gemacht hat, steht Phoenix nämlich doch nicht so schlecht. Und die schönsten Phoenix-Momente gibt es immer dann, wenn erst der sechste Hördurchgang die Überzeugung mit sich bringt. Bei den erwähnten beiden Tracks stellte sich die Befriedigung jedenfalls noch nicht ein.

Den Sack machen Phoenix diesmal aber – anders als bei United und Alphabetical – am Ende zu. Das gehört sich auch so. „Armitice“ greift auf dieselbe unikate Energie zurück, die Phoenix auch beim vierten Album so unverwechselbar macht.

Da Youtube bislang nur bereits erwähntes „1901“ im Angebot hat, nochmal den Klassiker und gleichzeitig meine erste Berührung mit Phoenix. Passenderweise im Frankreichurlaub 1901 oder so, jedenfalls lange her.

    WikiFX Scam Alert: Stay away from Esperio!!!

    Esperio

    Abstract:The Ukrainian regulator NSSMC has recently blacklisted Esperio and put it on its list of potential scams!!!

    ??Investors who are still trading forex at Esperio had better quit trading ASAP!!! Investors who have been deceived by this broker please contact WikiFX to help you recover your funds!!!

    ??Let us start with the most important – the recent warning on Aug 3th against Esperio(esperio.org) issued by the Ukrainian regulator National Securities and Stock Market Commission (NSSMC). You may check the warning on the screenshot below.

    ??So Esperio is a blacklisted brokerage as the Ukrainian regulator NSSMC put it on its list with doubtful investment projects. That‘s effectively a warning, and it serves as solid evidence of a scam, but in this particular case, it’s not official proof. NSSMC is not a top-tier regulator, which means that the alert is not as weighty as usual, but at the end of the day, a warning is a warning, and you should avoid Esperio!

    ??WikiFX also paid a visit to the broker‘s official website to learn more. At a first glance, Esperio seems like a decent enough broker. The broker’s website looked good and provided comprehensive information about account types and trading conditions. Moreover, Esperio offers two great, highly functional trading platforms – MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5. The brokers legal documentation did not seem to contain any sort of shady clauses either.

    ??However, Esperio is far from squeaky clean. If you look at the screenshot below, you will see that Esperio is a brand of OFG Cap. Ltd., a company registered in the tax haven St. Vincent and the Grenadines. It means that Esperio is essentially an anonymous and unregulated broker, so it naturally becomes highly untrustworthy and a suspected scam.SVG is still one of those jurisdictions that allow the incorporation of companies with undisclosed ownership, which is a major red flag as we don‘t know who really operates Esperio. The other issue is that SVGFSA, the financial authority in St. Vincent, does not license or monitor brokers, meaning that the reviewed broker is NOT REGULATED, which is yet another major red flag! Unregulated offshore brokers are always suspicious, and it’s not recommended to trade with them!

    ??Esperio provides MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 platforms, which are the undisputed leaders in retail Forex trading. But you should know that a decent platform is not enough to confirm that a broker is reliable! Indeed, elaborate scams are well-funded, and they can afford to provide sophisticated software and many other tools, making the whole experience look legit. That said, the offshore nature of the brokerage, the lack of a license, and the Ukrainian warning are still the biggest issues, and Esperio remains a broker WikiFX will never recommend, notwithstanding the advanced platforms they have. So, to fully benefit from MetaTrader, its recommended to go for regulated brokers.

    ??The trading risks are exceptionally high as the default leverage is 1:500, and the ratio can be increased to 1:1000 upon request. Both ratios have tremendous profit potential, but the risks are so high that you may blow your account within minutes, if not seconds! Hence, the ultra-high leverage is a downside, and at this point, WikiFX cannot confirm that Esperio allows reduction! Beware!

    ??Now let’s search “Esperio” on WikiFX APP to find out more about this broker. WikiFX is an authoritative global inquiry platform providing basic information inquiry and regulatory license inquiry. WikiFX can evaluate the safety and reliability of more than 36,000 global forex brokers. WikiFX gives you a huge advantage while seeking the best forex brokers.

    ??As you can see, based on information given on WikiFX, Esperiocurrently has no valid regulatory license and the score is rather negative – only 1.16/10! WikiFX gives brokers a score from 0 to 10. The higher the score is, the more reliable the broker is.

    ??Investors are advised to search relevant information on WikiFX APP about the broker you are inclined to trade with before finally deciding whether to make investment or not. Compared with official financial regulators which might lag behind, WikiFX is better at monitoring risks related to certain brokers – the WikiFX compliance and audit team gives a quantitative assessment of the level of broker regulatory through regulatory grading standards, regulatory actual values, regulatory utility models, and regulatory abnormality prediction models. If investors use WikiFX APP before investing in any broker, you will be more likely to avoid unnecessary trouble and thus be prevented from losing money! The importance of being cautious and prudent can never be stressed enough.

    ??In a nutshell, it’s not wise to invest in Esperio. WikiFX reminds you that forex scam is everywhere, you’d better check the broker’s information and user reviews on WikiFX before investing.

    ??You can also expose forex scams on WikiFX. WikiFX will do everything in its power to help you and expose scams, warn others not to be scammed. In addition, scam victims are advised to seek help directly from the local police or a lawyer.

    ??WikiFX keeps track of developments, providing instant updates on individual traders and helping investors avoid unscrupulous brokers. If you want to know whether a broker is safe or not, be sure to open WikiFXs official website or download the WikiFX APP through this link to evaluate the safety and reliability of this broker!
