I keep hearing the chorus as "I can't explain it, Eddie Island, Eddie Island way".

Sucks this is a four month wait but I'm thrilled I might finally see them again after missing them on the last tour.

I fucking love this song. A guitar solo!! And then the 50 or so seconds are wonderful. It's a great song and I can't wait, although it's a huge and kind of ridiculous wait.
I kept thinking - This is where U2 should be. The vocals at 3:20 sounded a bit like bono's voice, and i just thought, I want to hear the Edge with some sick guitar again, with a great solo.
Love these guys and am really looking forward to the album.

Great song, damn. That little burst of a guitar line is stuck in my head already.

And it's coming out the day after my birthday, obviously that's why they're waiting so long.

I'm SO happy that this song sounds different. We all have differing opinions about the band, but I don't know if I could've fucked with another album that sounded like the last two, not that I don't like those albums, I just wanted something new. This is going to make me appreciate the last two albums even more, more than anything else.

God I'm happy.

The National can do no wrong.....Berninger's voice and unique lyrics, drumming that sounds inhuman with pace and timing, and guitarist-brothers with composing abilities = never a bad song.

One of the best rock bands in America.

Turns into a Jack Nicholson Party album near the end there.

I see Carin/Karen will be making another appearance.
