Does anyone know if any versions of this release have the "Late At Night" music video?

Phantom Theory does not re-invent the wheel, it just show-cases what Futureshock are all about. Their tech-house sound has long been championed from DJ's ranging from the techno stable, to the house stable and I believe this shows how versatile their production is.

I would say that Phantom Theory is an honest album, Futureshock don't pretend to be something their not, which had become the trennd. When Sasha released Airdrawndagger (a breaks album), it was hardly what Sasha was all about and it received muted reviews as a result.

The only criticism I would levy at this album is that it did sound a touch dated and could have been done with being released 18 months earlier.

I really cannot understand how a person can give a 1/5 mark to this album. Of course we can find thousands of albums better than Futureshock's "Phantom Theory". But it's a very powerfull dancefloor oriented album.

I can understand that some people may hate technohouse and dancefloor electronic music, but the fact that you don't like a style doesn't mean that something done in that style is bad.

Phantom theory is a very nice job and a very honest project. Before published this album Futureshock did a very long remixing trainning. They were very brave when they published this album. They could easily published an album in the way of the eighties EBM revival which was the mainstream in 2003. It's obvious that they know very well the dancefloor escene. But they preferer to went for an early nineties techno sound (in the way of Empirion, Age of Love, and Underworld). This is an example coherene.

"Phantom Theory" came ten years late, or ten years early. Beacuse revivals are aproximately every 20 years. But it left us a fistfull of grate songs such as: Statikman, Another Hit, Late At Night, Satellite, Kato's Revenge, On My Mind, Wide Open, Spark or Birdcage.

Maybe it's not the best album in the history of music, but 9 really good songs in an album with 12 tracks, should inspired a little bit of respect. If I were a musician, I would hanve changed one om my hands for that 75% quality ratio (and that doesn't mean at all that Fifty One, Pride's Paranoia and Frequency are bad tunes).
