    The Dears were churning out sweeping, blustery epics long before "dramatic indie rock from Canada" was its own subgenre, and Degeneration Street, the band's fifth album sees them perfecting the template.

    This is a staggering record, displaying not only a golden streak of songwriting but also a band newly energised to their cause - making it a return to form of near biblical proportions. Highly recommended.

    Few albums this year will match up to the level of proficiency and commitment here and yet it remains a distinct probability that the world still won't listen. An album that will shadow most others.
