It took me over ten times to understand the akward piano intro of Fake Empire. But then the drums comes in and it all makes sense!

Favourite National album. There's also a live recording of this album released last year which is really great.

This album sort of sums up what my life is right now: soft, beautiful, but slightly troubling. The hints of darkness pocketed throughout the album are what gives the moments of stark wholesomeness, like that of the chorus on green gloves & brainy.
Essential Tracks: Mistaken For Strangers, Green Gloves, Brainy.

The bands best album and a favourite of mine. Nice variation of instrumentation and such a relaxing album. An enjoyable album from start to finish and it is certainly a great album to work or study to. Recommended.

Best Tracks: Fake Empire, Mistaken For Strangers, Brainy, Slow Show, Guest Room, Ada

A number of these songs are musical perfection. So amazing in parts, and such an amazing whole listen, too.

Another great album by The National. Has some of the best songs that they have made in their discography, including Fake Empire and Mistaken for Strangers.
