Weirdest Destroyer Review Ever

Amazon reviewer interprets Rubies as a country album, comparing it to Jim Reeves! I like this idea so much that I wish it were true. Or even remotely plausible. Dan, country album to follow, please?

Jim Reeves! My dad has many, many Jim Reeves albums. I didn't even know he was considered country. It's been so long since I've read your blog, Carl -- only because I dropped out of the "scene" and couldn't even deal with music journalism/blogging for at least the past 6 mos -- it's great that somehow, Destroyer has been connected to Jim Reeves. I've been waiting for that moment all my life, I think.

Well, to be fair, on these past few tours, Dan *has* been known to put the liquor away as well as any old, hard-drinking country star can.
