'Your Blues' is nearly as good as 'Kaputt' and sounds pretty similar, people forget that one.

Even 'Trouble in Dreams' has the amazing 'Foam Hands' and 'My Favourite Year' though, really consistent.



The downside to his work is you can max out on his song writing and voice sometimes.

Piglet, as long as you recognise that's a niche opinion all is good.



Everyone refers to 'Kaputt' as his masterpiece or if not that, then it's his 'breakthrough' or 'best known'.



I've never heard anyone else say it's 'easily his worst'

Croc I just reach for 'Poison Season' more often...I realise it has three or four tracks I like a lot less than the rest of the album and 'Streethawk' is more consistent overall, but I guess the style is more where I'm at in 2017 and the highs hit harder.

The first half of 'Destroyer's Rubies' might be the strongest run of Destroyer songs - I just don't like the second half nearly as much.



Also, 'Rome' might be the deep cut on this one.

The first seven songs on this are a perfect run of tunes, wouldn’t change them at all. The last two songs are also great together.



So Tracks 8 and 9 are the only ones that need to grow on me.



That 5 is looking more and more secure with each listen....

He should have recorded a 'Laziest River' type track for this album too.



'Laziest River' is what made 'Kaputt' an epic.
