    Dan Behar is one of those cool guys that comes up with really good and qualitative music just when you think you might have heard the last of him. Personally, I intend to follow his career wherever he takes it, and hopefully it will continue to be as rewarding as it has been in the past. I love these Spanish songs!!! Too bad this wasn't a proper full album (as they call them).

    Bejar's fans will clearly identify his unique musical fingerprint, and may have no clearer understanding of these songs than anything else in Destroyer's incomprehensively wonderful pop oeuvre in the King's English. [No. 105, p.54]

    He’s brought the whole Destroyer vibe to an entirely non-Destroyer set of material, and you can feel the waves of cool detachment, of stylish artifice wafting off these tunes just the same as always.

    Five Spanish Songs is clearly more than a mere genre exercise--it’s a respectful, and very much tuneful, tip of the cap from one songwriter to another, which transcends language.
