The highly-anticipated 2007 release from The New Pornographers.
"More cinematic than "Twin Cinema," more cohesive than any other record released this year, Challengers is so very good it almost compels you to think in the cliches of music criticism." - PopMatters
"The New Pornographers are straying away from the niche they've carved out for themselves, and they're doing it with skill and calm. And perhaps that should be celebrated, because Challengers is everything this sort
of smooth transition ought to be." - Tiny Mix Tapes
