iTunes Review

Don't be put off by sad-voiced crooner Dan Bejar's stage name: the only thing this enigmatically evocative Canadian songwriter is guaranteed to destroy is your preconceptions. The erstwhile New Pornographer's 11th album makes a sharp right turn following Kaputt's '80s-jazz soft-pop. His dramatic fusion of rich, string-driven balladry ("The River," "Girl in a Sling") and the saxophone-fueled rock fury of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band ("Times Square," "Midnight Meet the Rain") transform New York bohemian despair into glorious rock epiphanies.

Customer Reviews

My favorite band

I was upset to see that the only review on this (wonderful) album was negative, so I just wanted to show a little love to such an amazing band. Destroyer is my fave :)

Used to Love this music, but was it always a Bowie ripoff?

I don't think so.
Don't particularly want to listen to old albums but this is overproduced bowie jazzy spacey throaty hodgepodge.
Better than most.
Still derivative and far from as good as original source/thing.
STRIKE such a good song.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

In 1998, Bejar added a rhythm section and took it into the studio for the first time. The resulting recording, City of Daughters, is a sparsely produced collection of catchy pop songs in which Bejar's increasingly obtuse lyrics really start to stand...
