4.5 superbShoegazer29 | February 10th 12

Perhaps the best album to be associated with any member of the Wolf Parade family. Spencer Krug is a brilliantly elliptical lyricist, highly-talented musician and constantly surprising arranger. He brings the best of his talents to Dragonslayer, which sound to these ears like it was recorded entirely live (no overdubs, little post-production), and proves how dynamic and fantastical a musician he truly is. This is an indie rock record like few others - one can spend hours and hours discovering every little musical and lyrical detail - and it's a delight every single time.

5.0 classicmklompus | November 20th 09

8 Songs long, but all of them fantastic. Been a Sunset fan since the beginning, but this is the first album where I can honestly say I like every song.
Idiot heart, Apollo and the Buffalo and Anna Anna Anna Oh!, a much improved version of Paper Lace (from the original, on Swan Lake's Enemy Mine) and You Go On Ahead, are the real standouts, but they're all good.
Great album

Another wonderful effort from Sunset Rubdown. Exceptional song writing talents on display once again.
