Just as some comedians have a hankering to play Hamlet, Phil Collins has liked to seem serious and reflective. It may not be the way every fan likes to see him, but it certainly has its appeal; after all, his consider-the-homeless song, "Another Day in Paradise," was the biggest single of his solo career.But after 1993's assiduously self-involved "Both Sides," people were beginning to think they'd had enough of his "Alas, poor Yorick!" routine -- including, it would seem, Collins himself.

Desperate for a replacement, the group turned to Jimmy Page, then the hottest session guitarist in England.

That Phantom Planet, the smart power-pop band once anchored by Rushmore actor Jason Schwartzman, would move even an inch closer to the ubiquitous Puddle of Mudd modern-rock formula -- shredded Ramones rhythm guitar, syrupy backbeat, distressed sensitive-guy bleating -- is cause for dismay. But like so many recent projects with commercial aspirations, this long-awaited third effort, Phantom Planet, is a hedged bet: Though the first few songs offer utterly typical massive guitar chorales ("You're Not Welcome Here")
