This follow-up to Destroyer's 1999 masterpiece "Thief" is an essential slice of literary pop from the current-day's master purveyor of this form, Dan Bejar. His voice is a sublimely confident and endearing instrument that perfectly complements his intensely clever lyrics and complex musical arrangements. If I were to describe this musically I'd give nods to Ziggy/Hunky-era Bowie, Mott the Hoople, possibly Robyn Hitchcock (though I like Bejar better), and maybe a smattering of Belle and Sebastian.
