Alphabetical is the second studio album by French indie pop band Phoenix, originally released in March 2004 via Source Records.

Phoenix are a rock band from Versailles, France, consisting of Thomas Mars, Deck d'Arcy, Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz. Vocalist Thomas Mars, bassist Deck d'Arcy, and guitarist Chris Mazzalai started playing together as a "garage band" based out of Mars's house in the suburbs of Paris. In 1995, Laurent Brancowitz, Mazzalai's older brother, permanently joined the band on guitar. 

Two years later the band took on the name Phoenix and pressed 500 copies of a single on their own label, Ghettoblaster. Shortly after, they were signed to the Paris-based Source Records. Phoenix became well acquainted with labelmates AIR when they acted as their backing band on several UK TV appearances.

Following their two singles Too Young and If I Ever Feel Better, United was released in 2000. Their track Too Young was included on the soundtrack for the movie Lost in Translation (which was directed by Mars' future wife, Sofia Coppola).

The band's second album, Alphabetical, was released in 2004 and saw the band reach more mainstream success, with the singles Everything Is Everything and Run Run Run reaching some alternative rock airplay charts. The album was produced by Phoenix and Tony Hoffer.  Pino Palladino contributed bass on three tracks. The album has sold 30,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  Everything is Everything, Run Run Run, I'm An Actor, Victim of the Crime, Congratulations and Alphabetical.

This LP Vinyl Record is a reissue (February 2015 via Parlophone Records) with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe.
