The 1998 sophomore release from Vancouver legends Destroyer.
Indie magnate Dan Bejar and company turn it up a notch with City of Daughters--17 tracks of impeccable songwriting.
"Since recording his first record as Destroyer in 1996 with the almost impenetrably lo-fi We'll Build Them a Golden Bridge, Destroyer mastermind Bejar has taken one frustrating turn after another, incorporating a significantly new approach to his music with each subsequent album. City of Daughters, the sophomore effort and his first masterpiece, was a natural, albeit far more enjoyable and consistent, progression from Bridge, but Thief would mark his first movement into more complex structures and grandiose pop arrangements." - Cokemachineglow
