beautiful lyrics, unique vocals and amazing bass lines. yet the music lacks variety and it may feel like the same for some tracks. and it doesn't have ultra shiny moments but doesn't have very disappointing ones either.
Fantastic songwriting with unique lyrics, though as a whole not quite as cohesive or as refined as their later albums. Despite this there is still enough energy and creativity to give it repeated listens.
Love the energy in this one compared to Boxer, which is slightly more poppy or High Violet which is a little more dreary (in a good way).
This album has a more direct sound, more anger. I love it when Berninger screams the lyrics like in Abel and Mr. November, similar to the Pixies - has the same oomph.
Good, not great.
agree with the raw sound comment. abel is awesome.
The National at their finest. Best songwriting, best voice, and rawest sound.
My favourite album, a work of complete genius. Beautifully crafted songs with restrained melodies which allow Matt Berninger's cryptic lyrics to draw you into the secret meeting in the basement of his brain.
That voice DAMN!! I love The National!!
Man do I love his voice. Surprised how much I liked this album at first listen.
Favorite Track: Mr. November
I think this is the band coming into its own but not quite arriving there yet as they continued to develop. I love this site for showing me so much great music and bands I have missed out on.
