There's some great songwriting, but it isn't exactly memorable

The National bring a really interesting sound and change in song writing (it's about time), and it's such a clean, glassy, beautiful listening experiencr. Towards the end this becomes a problem as the album becomes almost sterile sounding, but from Hairpin Turns onward you get some of the National's best material yet. Fantastic album.

Unfortunately, this album let me down. While Sleep Well Beast was easily one of The National's greatest achievements, this record feels rather dull and repetitive. Standout tracks are "Rylan", "The Pull Of You", and "Light Years". Everything else is pretty, but also boring.

Changing "Sometimes I Don't Think", a live fan favorite, into "The Pull Of You" was a mistake, despite the fact that the latter is still pretty good. It went from a visceral, kinetic jam to a mellow, meandering tune - just like every other song on the record.

6/10 or 7/10. Good, but not great.

Taking a pause with all of Lambchops albums to indulge in this. Sounds promising, and I got feel it might grow into something beautiful inside me. High time for The National to improve again. Been on a small bump with the two latest albums, in my view. Trouble will find me had it all but lacked a touch of something, the magic stuff making emotions come alive, or show. And Sleep Well Beast was to much of an intellectual experimental thing, also crippling the emotional response.

After having listened to this 6+ times over the past couple of days I can firmly say that this is one of the best records The National has ever produced. I loved every second of this from the very beginning, and every time I've listened to it my love has only grown.

Although it isn't necessary, one can better understand I Am Easy To Find if seen as a companion to the short film and vice-versa. They compliment each other in a magnificent way. Providing not only imagery but context for the lyrics, which are some of the best the band has ever written. In "Quiet Light", the first verse struck a chord with me as few other songs in their catalogue have done.

This album shows us that The National can still evolve as a band, incorporating new elements into their songwriting but still maintaining their own style.

The guest vocals don't feel alien, but compliment Matt's voice in the best way possible. The contrast between high and low tones makes every song reach deeper into the soul. This synergy is best heard in "Where Is Her Head", an extremely energetic song about parent paranoia.

I Am Easy To Find is a record about marriage (oh, surprise) and about being a parent. The tracklist follows a narrative; it has a three-act structure that shows us the evolution of the narrator through all of his dilemmas, and when you realize you've reached "Light Years", you can contemplate what a beautiful experience you just had.

The strings, the arrengements, everything in here is extremely well done. It may feel somehow long at first, but the more you listen to it, the more it grows on you and it's when you can start dissecting the songs at a deeper level.

I Am Easy To Find is my favorite record of 2019 and it may become one of my all-time favorites this decade. In my opinion, it doesn't top Boxer or High Violet, but it's still an almost-perfect album. A very beautiful experience that only gets better with time. I may raise my 90 to a 95 soon.
