Editorial Reviews

Degeneration Street, the fifth album from The Dears,reunites the original lineup that brought you "Lost in the Plot" and delivers the passion and soul that has earned the adoration of fans and critics worldwide. From the electrifying nihlist pop anthem Thrones, to the star-scraping heights of Galactic Tides; from the grimy opener Omega Dog, to the Motown sci-fi of Lamentation,Degeneration Street is, definitively, The Dears.

Format: Audio CD
7th album from ambitiously epic Montreal band. The Dears are led by Murray Lightburn's
powerful & addictive, big-room, swooning vocals--propelling indie pop ballads that slowly build
and evolve into full-on stadium pop anthems. Unique orchestral pop/rock that is stylish, angst-
ridden & captivating. Similarities to Muse, Pulp, Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, New Order,
Airborne Toxic Event, Queen, Arcade Fire.

but let your raised fist be the last thing to go under. That's the best way I can sum up the Dears. The feeling I get from Lightburn and company is not so much that life can be miserable, but that you should lean into it and fight for joy. Your gonna hurt anyway, so take your licks. It's worth it. Sort of like what Morgan Freeman says at the end of Seven: "Hemingway said the world is a beautiful place and worth fighting for. I believe in the second part." I can be a cynical curmudgeon, but I seldom find myself more idealistic than I do after listening to the exuberant music of the Dears. They've been a go to band when I've got the blues since a friend recommended them back when No Cities Left came out. In my opinion Degeneration Street is definitely worth your hard earned money, especially while it's $2.99. It's worth it for the songs Blood and Galactic Tides alone. While I'm singing their praises let me also mention that they provided me one of the most memorable concert experiences of my life. I saw them in Denton, TX a couple of years ago. There were maybe fifty other people there. I've seen this sort of attendance make bands sullenly bang through a set and sulk off to the merch table to scowl and grumble. Not the Dears. While the band set up on stage and started playing Savior from the album Missiles, Murray Lightburn took a spot at the back of the crowd and slowly made his way to the stage while singing the opening versus. Before he got on stage he turned around and stood with us to finish the song with a 100% crowd participation sing-along. Then he hopped on stage, and the band performed with the same amount of passion and energy I imagine they would give for a packed stadium.

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.
