I really liked it on first listen. Dream Lover still fucking rules. Side B (The River>Girl in a Sling>Times Square) is fucking amazing. I hadn't heard Archer on the Beach from when it came out years ago but it's great and leads off a more quiet, contemplative second half (aside from Midnight Meet the Rain). Lyrically I think it's a step down, but that's only because he cuts out most of his esotericism from Kaputt, so it probably makes it more accessible. But still so many moments on this record which contain everything that I love so much about this band. Can only imagine I'll grow to love this thing more and more, some of the more slow tracks are going to reveal themselves through repeated listens and with headphones. Love the horn work, it's not as pervasive as it is on Kaputt but if anything more on point when it is played. And the strings are a sublime touch, just listen to Girl in a Sling for proof of that.

Rubies
European Oils
Chinatown
Kaputt (I don't know how this could miss anyone's top 4, it's a masterpiece)

I need to spend more time with the other albums, but I just love these songs.

I could easily have Kaputt on mine. Have you heard Trouble in Dreams? It's very good.

I've heard:

Streethawk: A Seduction (2-3 times)
This Night (1 time)
Your Blues (1 time)
Rubies (5-6 times)
Kaputt (193240494704 times)
Poison Season (2 times)

So no, not yet. I want to hear that one and Thief, then I'll do some relistens. This Night is one I'm particularly interested in returning to. It was great but I heard it and Carrie & Lowell for the first time on the same night and yeah, the latter stuck with me more.

I think you'll love Trouble in Dreams. I'd rate it third behind Kaputt and Rubies, and it's sonically similar to the latter. My Favourite Year, Shooting Rockets, Introducing Angels and Libby's First Sunrise are all stellar tracks. I also like This Night.

I never listened to the stream, but like songs they promoted the album with. Safe bet for purchase? What say ye, Cobbz?

I like it a lot as well. It's been a while since I've listened to an album twice on the same day.
