I bought this album at a Destroyer show and I didn't know what to expect when I got it, I had only heard 3 songs by Bejar, "Jackie", "Breakin' the Law", the best 2 songs on The New Pornographers Mass Romantic Album, and "The Sublimation Hour" which I had downloaded from the Misra Records website. While the show suffered from poor sound (Message to Dan "Oh please have Destroyer open for the New Pornographers for the spring/summer 2003 tour") the songs were amazing, especially the first song "Strike" with the band coming into a frenzy that I was simply not prepared for, and the encore of "The Bad Arts", the best song I have seen live since being introduced to "Deeper into Movies" at The Fillmore in 1997. Since the purchase of this album I have become Destroyer's #1 Super Fan in San Francisco, almost everyone I have played this album for either buys it or begs for a copy, after which it does not leave their CD player, it really is that good. There is not a weak song on this album, there are classic lines, classic hooks, explosions, its all there. Play it loud, play it soft, just play it, best album in a decade.

Quite simply put: My favorite album of 2001. I can't wait to see what Dan Bejar does next. And this coming from someone who doesn't usually even like canadian bands!

Intelligent rock with sort of a retro David Bowie-esque feel to it. Takes a couple jams to get into, but once in, this is top of the line stuff. Several excellent tracks here: sample #8 The Crossover or #4 The Sublimation Hour and I guarantee you will want to buy this CD. Best track is #2 The Bad Arts which features everything that is good about intelligent music.

This follow-up to Destroyer's 1999 masterpiece "Thief" is another essential slice of literary pop from the current-day's master purveyor of this form, Daniel Bejar. Mr. Bejar is Canadian and is probably better known to most indie-punters as a seemingly-reluctant (now ex) member of The New Pornographers. Sounding like a cross between Hunky Dory-era Bowie, a much less pompous Brett Anderson (Suede) and John Darnielle from the Mountain Goats, Daniel Bejar's voice is a sublimely confident and endearing instrument that perfectly complements his intensely clever lyrics and complex musical arrangements. "Streethawk", from what my tiny little mind can derive, is a savage critique on the music industry, or is it? One never really knows, coz' Bejar's intricate wordplay is so uniquely cryptic that one can never be sure! Musically, Bejar is ably supported by the current Destroyer line-up of John Collins, Scott Morgan, Stephen Wood and crucially Jason Zumpano (of Zumpano fame) on piano whose timeless playing gives this album extra gravitas. Stand-out moments include the should-be-hit "The Sublimation Hour", the beguiling album opener "Streethawk I" and the seven-minute gem "Bad Arts". Best Canadian album of 2001? Look no further.
