At first listen this is a very good first half followed by a mediocre second half. I'll heed jhuik's warnings however and make a mental note to return to this album before saying anything further.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
I probably have to say I like High Violet the most, but fuck, this is a masterpiece. The National is a band out of this World, I havent seen a band grow so much since their first album.
Harder to crack than High Violet... I'm not sure which one I like more.
Beautiful, beautiful album, like most users below have already stated. The mixture of gorgeous piano playing with the manic drumming is almost symbolic, like a contrast between the beautiful memories and disappointments of everyday life desribed in the album's lyrics. Mistaken For Strangers is maybe the best track in here, but Apartment Story and Guest Room (can't understand their relatively low ratings btw) come pretty close as well.
Brilliantly beautiful album. Expertly crafted sound with cryptic but not baffling lyrics, Boxer stays consistently engaging throughout the duration of the album. Racing Like a Pro and Ada both stand out to me, but there is enough variety that I could easily see any of the other tracks being other listeners' personal favorites.
Secret Meeting is on Alligator.
