Trouble in Dreams is indeed very enjoyable. Quite dense with a number of long tracks and I'm going to need some further listens to get a handle on it, but there's a lot to like. Libby's First Sunrise is very good. Plaza Trinidad isn't.

My Favourite Year, Shooting Rockets (quite Floyd-esque) and Libby's First Sunrise are the standouts I'd say.

Thief is also good - Destroyer's the Temple, Vulture, Perpetual Roads are all great and Mercy is one of my fav Destroyer songs.

And after all the wait the p4k review is totally half-cooked.

I agree with the score, but the end of the review came out of nowhere and the conclusion didn't seem to match anything before it.

Archer on the Beach is very quickly becoming one of my favourite songs of the year. I fucking love it. The atmosphere and mood created is stellar, very hard to create an environment like that, something almost tangible, over the space of just five minutes. The rhythm section is the standout, I fucking love that bass line, the light drumming following it very well and then the quick pattern coming out of the choruses. The distant horns do a tremendous job of adding atmosphere to the track, and the piano combines really well with Bejar during the chours. Bejar's lyrics here are wonderfully esoteric and evocative, and his vocals too fit the track sensationally well, in particular I love the way the chorus, the way he starts "and Archer's where you left him..." in this dark yet smirk-y (can't think of the word to describe what I mean, some help would be great) way, building up over the next two lines before sort of letting it go and turning away with the final line "archer on the beach..." at the last second. It's a very sultry, sexy, kind of song and I love it to death.

I must admit that I haven't listened to this album very many times, despite liking it.

I'll never get to see him. I'm so fucking jealous and angry and upset.

Bumping this thread because I was listening to Trouble in Dreams (which is a fucking great album, deserves to be in the discussion with Rubies and Kaputt) today and this song IS FUCKING AWESOME, GIVE IT SOME LOVE:

Destroyer - Kaputt (AKA NSW: NEVAR Forget)

And I'm bumping this because I finally "got" Poison Season. I fucking love this album. This is a stone sober listen that completely changed my view of an album, a rare and beautiful thing.

Dream Lover and Times Square are two of the most ebullient Destroyer tracks, while Archer on the Beach and Midnight Meet the Rain are extremely playful and fresh. Forces From Above might be my favorite track now; it's so insistent and driving yet its soft production helps it slide in perfectly with this gentle, sophisticated and cutting batch of songs.

Still not better than Kaputt though. I love that album as much as I ever have, if not more so. Kaputt, Suicide Demo for Kara Walker and Chinatown all rank among the best songs of the 2010s for me. I'm just glad I've finally pulled my head out and noticed that there are some songs on Poison Season that aren't far off.

Thanks for coming to the conclusion I, this forum's most passionate and dedicated Destroyer fan, reached two years ago.

 
Archer on the Beach is the best song for mine. It's fucking sublime. Disappointed to see no mention of Bangkok though. That song has really stood up for mine, it's so beautiful.
