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.
