For years and years I'd never been able to single out an artist or band as being my favourite. That was until I stumbled upon the National in 2010. Boxer, Aligator, High Violet and Trouble Will find me are to me 5 star albums. Cherry Tree EP is also excellent.

The only problem that I have with this band is that every album sounds the same. But the good thing is that every album is great

My favourite band of the last five years absolutely, and deserves strong consideration as the best band on the planet. Boxer, High Violet, Alligator are among the best albums ever.

The gorgeous timbre of Matt Berenger's voice and their thickly atmospheric production make this band an enthralling experience if you have a taste for their sombre tone.
