I'm sad that this album doesn't really click for me because everyone else seems to be enjoying it so much

I got to see Bejar et al. a couple of weekends ago. The current band line-up is 8 folks strong, and, as you might expect, is heavily oriented toward the sound of the new album, including two full-time horn players, female backing vocals, etc. It was my first ever show standing in front of a guy playing trumpet through effects pedals for an hour. Which was pretty entertaining, actually.

The new material sounded great live, but the (scarce) older material suffered. And the rare throwback spastic rocker ("3000 Flowers" for me, entirely out of left field) was a little disjointed with the rest of the set.

I recommend catching them if you like Kaputt, but don't expect Destroyer's Rubies, or much else remotely guitar-oriented. And the instrumental limitations surely contributed to a shortened setlist. Here's what they played:

Chinatown
Blue Eyes
It's Gonna Take an Airplane
Downtown
My Favorite Year
Kaputt
3000 Flowers
Painter in Your Pocket
Suicide Demo for Kara Walker
Song for America

Gave this a burl today. It's good. It will get more listens. The horns turn me on.

Yeah, this is pretty great. Probably the best of the five from 2011 I've listened to so far. That may have been helped by the positively autumnal/wintry weather we're having, which suits the album perfectly.

There's not a bad song, not even close. Blue Eyes might be my favourite. But from the pounding drums and then Go-Betweens guitar that starts Chinatown to the end of the epic Bay of Pigs, there's hardly a bad moment.

The horns take it to another level for me... my mind wanders as they play wistfully in the background of each song, like in Meeting Across the River.

Think I'll go buy it tomorrow, hope it has lyrics.

Sorry. When I get really into an album I can't shut up about it. So you'll just have to deal with that for a while.

I've thumbed through the books on your shelves

Cobbler, if you are enjoying the album, try putting "Archer on the Beach" at the end. I think that it works exceedingly well as a subdued coda to the lusher, more energized main album.

Best song on the album, IMO.

I entirely agree, probably tied as my fav with the title track.

Every song, except for Poor In Love, is great though.
