The Sublimation Hour is the second-best song to ever contain the line, "Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust."

Destroyer is by far my favorite lyricist and he shows exactly why on Streethawk. A Seduction. While the instrumentation in most of the tracks is slightly lacking compared to Destroyer's Rubies, the lyrics are absolutely stellar. I am even feeling a David Bowie vibe on songs like The Very Modern Dance and Farrar, Straus & Giroux (Sea of Tears). My only big complaint with this album is its abundance of filler songs.
