Berninger is great at what he does. I don't understand the comparisons between him and Ian Curtis. Curtis always sounds so forced, while Berninger's voice sounds completely natural that way.

I find the contrast between Berninger's singing and his speaking slightly funny, although it's not nearly as different as the insanity that is Win Butler's speaking voice. I still don't understand that.

I've never been a crazy big fan of The National. I do find them pleasant, though.

not so much that anyone's said that he's got a bad or an off-putting voice, moreso that i've since his voice get brought up a lot in discussions about The National. i was just surprised, from all the times i've seen it brought up, i was expecting a real wtf voice, but it suited perfectly..

well, finished your list, Andrew. it was great, and apart from six or seven songs, i really did enjoy most of the rest.

1901 might be the best song of 2009. i feel... privileged to hear it, it's that good. i liked the ending to the second disc as well, Howl was great, and so was the Starflyer song.

I'm sitting in the back of a car (rip A. Chilton) with my dog sleeping next to me and listening to Just Like Heaven from LM's list. So far I'm really digging it. I can't really give a big running commentary because it's nearly midnight and I'm in the middle of nowhere, but it's a pretty kool thang to go with this tasty music. Ooh, Camera Obscura.

Ah, okay. I hadn't read reviews or anything that denigrated his voice (haven't read the Popmatters Alligator review that LM mentioned, perhaps I should?), so I was more curious as to who/what you had in mind, that's all.

Seriously, it's cool. I can only imagine the kind of shit GAF gets into (though I would rather not) when listening to these lists. That's probably why he never does any commentaries.

Oh, it's awful, but provides a few lulz. The guy actually isn't an awful writer, but he obsessively picks on a few traits while giving the band's collective musical talents next to no credit:
