Came back to this today after a short break and it really clicked. It finally sounds like itself and not all of its influences. Such a nice flow to the tracklist. This might end up being a 4.5... but then I'd have to 5 Poison Season.

This album is excellent, and definitely makes Poison Season that much better. Kaputt to this is some sort of Bejarian trilogy, I tell ya

Been discovering the Destroyer's records lately. I adore Kaputt but I did not like this one at first until just now where it has grown on me so, so hard. Should have put this on my year-end list but oh well, what do ya do?

Digging: Brian Fallon - Sleepwalkers

still don't think I'd rate too many albums from 2018 above this one

surprised you rate this 1.5 worse than 'Kaputt'

even more surprised you rate this 1.5 worse than 'Rubies'

but ok :3

I’d like to think this will become a sleeper classic among the indie masses like Kaputt did but honestly I think those were more innocent days, it would deserve the belated acclaim though

Anyone who doesn’t put Kaputt in their top 50, well I don’t want to say I won’t take their ‘Top 100 of the ‘10s’ list seriously...but I won’t take it very seriously

I think this one is one of the better indie pop albums of recent years, can’t think of much competition. You start looking towards Arcade Fire, The Shins, Spoon or Dirty Projectors and what they’re coming up with is just terrible

Also, this is still a great deal better than the last few New Pornographers albums

I just think people have moved away from indie stuff like this a bit tbh - but this is a goodie

‘Sky’s Grey’ is such a great ‘transporter’, takes me back to last year’s cloudy depressions :D

Almost as good as ‘Chinatown’ as an opener - and ‘Chinatown’ is my song of the decade so far.

Gorgeous record but I gotta put Poison Season and Kaputt above it. Kaputt is top twenty of the decade, Poison Season top 50 I'd say.
