I bought this album initailly after a Sunset rubdown gig. I was blown away by the sound the band made.

Being able to listen several times to songs and hear the lyrics clearly; having time to process the content and the sound together has been a revelation.

The feelings that are elicited from this record are the feel of the Pixies in their Dolittle pomp, Arcade Fire, prog and a whole bunch of other things.

I bought a second copy for my wife as she would listen over and over to it in her car coming home from work. A fabulous sound and engaging lyrics. A best album of the year for me.

Sunset Rubdown keeps on getting better and better. SR has always been a personal favourite but with the new album the band might just get noticed by a new group of people. At least, that's what I hope. Dragonslayer is a bit easier to listen to than previous albums. It all sounds more poppy and harmonic, in a way. But SR still managed not to give up their style of crafting intriguing songs of weird beauty. And all songs are more than great on this one.

There is much to commend on Spencer Krug's second release as Sunset Rubdown. He has really caught the zeitgeist of 2009's true indie-rock. Piggy-backing Dirty Projector's well-received release Bitte Orca, his Dragonslayer is equally eccentric and unconcerned with mass unit-shifting. It takes the same eccentricity Wild Beasts have so skilfully mined in their second album, pitching it will great aim at the correct and fickle bastion-barometers of taste.

Dragonslayer is naturally epic, but rather in subject matter than risky scope. To that end, and despite Krug's own claims to the contrary, it possesses the fanciful, concept qualities that The Decemberists harnessed so well on The Hazards of Love, whilst retaining a degree of indie, cult status akin to that achieved by Neutral Milk Hotel.

Krug's native Montreal, and Canada as a whole, is yet to recapture its Midas touch so prevalent a couple of years ago but consistently solid releases, such as this, will steady the ship. Along with his other, relatively successful side projects Swan Lake and Frog Eyes (and the much-overrated Wolf Parade), Krug is proving dependable. However, on Dragonslayer, he is not the star alone. Keyboardist and backing vocalist Camilla Wayne, provides entirely complimentary, ear-catching vocals to balance Krug's Byrne-isms.

Although some of the material on Dragonslayer is merely playing the role of a supporting cast (Paper Lace), it is often offset by sweeping and affable tales of butterflies and black swans.

A wonderfully unique mixture of Harmonic vocals, diverse keyboard play and guitar to lust after, along with lyrics deeply entangled in metaphorical madness make this a must have for anyone looking for something a bit different. 'Idiot Heart', 'You go on Ahead' and the 10 minute epic 'Dragons Lair' are the stand out songs but there is not a dissapointing track on the album. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a Gem 17 Jan. 2012
By D. A. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Checked this album out as I am a fan of Wolf Parade and have enjoyed all of their stuff in the past. This was my introduction to Sunset Rubdown and I can say that it is everything I liked about Wolf Parade if not more. The edgy lyrics and heavy driving/wailing guitars are all there in addition to what I think are more creative and unique lyrics and songwriting. The last three tracks on this album were probably my favorite of the year - grow on you each time you listen; powerful throughout with phenomenal lyrics, great guitar/percussion layering, and an ebb and flow of intensity that keeps your interest.

The indie rock world is in need of more bands like this - rock and roll with a pleasant indie twist. Nightingale/December song is the epitome of what Indie Rock should be in my humble opinion.

Bottom line - if you like harder indie rock including Wolf Parade, Black Keys, or even Band of Horses, you are missing out without this in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sunset Rubdown Album yet. 29 May 2010
By J. Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I have followed Spencer Krug's career for quite some time and think that this album has actually eclipsed his work with Wolf Parade. The album is listen through with 4 songs that I really see as highlights: Silver Moons, Idiot Heart, Apollo and the Buffalo and Anna Anna Anna Oh!,and You Go On Ahead. The album has a great flow and is something I often put on while reading or catching up on emails. It has a different sound then Random Spirit Lovers which I really like and the back-up vocals of Camilla Wynne Ingr sound great when played off the frayed voice of Spencer Krug. If you are a fan of bands like Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, and the National this band is well worth your time. The packaging of the vinyl edition is also great for collectors and as an added bonus it comes with a free code to get all of the album's songs in MP3. Great value.
