These guys (and gal) truly have an amazing sound and over the years they have been improving and perfecting it, and this album truly showcases what they're capable of. Compared to their earlier work, Degeneration Street has a slightly different sound, but they are still undoubtedly The Dears. This album seems more grand. More epic, though that word gets thrown around way too much these days. But anyway, I don't want to bore you. Put simply: I love this album. It's been in constant rotation since I picked it up a month or two ago. Omega Dog, 5 Chords, Blood, Thrones, Stick With Me Kid...it's crammed full of stellar songs, and honestly I can't recommend it highly enough. Also, on a side note, if you get a chance to see 'em live, do NOT miss out. They put on an amazing show.
