All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Seattle's Acceptance jump to Columbia for Phantoms, after EPs for Rocketstar and Militia Group. "Permanent" from the latter reappears here. It's a sound very similar to those earlier records -- heavily influenced by the smooth lines and urgency of Jimmy Eat World, with an alternative CCM bent. Acceptance don't get down for the screaming-guy-behind-singing-guy template that so many 21st century emo-ish groups use -- no, Phantoms is slick and melodic, drawing its tension from the careful multi-tracking of Jason Vena's vocals and layers of guitars.

Producer Aaron Sprinkle gives Acceptance the full Tooth & Nail treatment, where the songs have all the buoyancy and plead in the world but no chance for grit, and fans of that sound will gravitate to "Take Cover," "In Too Far," and "Over You." Acceptance appear to be very earnest about their music. They include a brief instrumental piece, "Ad Astra Per Aspera," and sing things like "Time shows us that all that ever mattered leaves us in the cold," which may leave listeners wondering what they really mean.

    Excellent Band!

    It's ashame they aren't more known or made it big. They def have potential! They are by far the best and my favorite new band! Love them and every single song! I heard they broke up though... Hope not! They sound awesome! Buy their cds and support them!

    Easy to Accept

    Overall Phantoms is a very likeable cd. It starts out great with "Take Cover" and keeps going good with "So Contagious". After that it picks up with " In too far". The Next couple tracks are probably the most Powerful with "The Letter", and " Diffrent". "Diffrent" is exactly what it says. It is pretty diffrent from a lot of Acceptance's songs especially from their last realease. But it is still a great first single and could get this band very popular. This is were some fans may feel let down though becasue Phantoms is clearly a Pop rock cd. I dont know if this was a smart choice for the band because they seemed to be going good on the indie rock seen and now are turning more Mainstream. After saying this old fans should still like most tracks. The best songs are still proably "Diffrent" and "Permanet". Phantoms may be pop but it is very easy to listen to and easy to ACCEPT.

    Amazing

    Acceptance is a rock/alternative band. They are amazing. Their CD's is one of those that you can listen to each song, non stop. Each song has a different beat, with beautiful lyrics that express so much. I'm completely addicted to them. They are absolutely wonderful. I can not name one song I like most on the track, because they are all perfectly flawless.
