That anxious guitar line running through I Need My Girl really takes it to another level. What could be a run-of-the-mill "I miss my girl" song becomes something much stronger with the instrumentation.

It seems the Japanese release has a bonus track called Learning. I'm trying to find a stream of it somewhere.

Totally, especially that shift in tone towards the end.

Totally agreed.

Just wait a few months for the deluxe edition.

Unfortunately you are probably spot on.

Also voting for a thread title change. I don't really want to be stuck with this one for the next 900 or so posts about The National.

If you're TROUBLED by the title, PM a mod and wait for the wheels of justice to turn.

Can't wait to frequent The National Discussion.

Four full listens thus far. It's fair to say that I really like the album a lot and have not come close to feeling like skipping any one song. I feel like it's not their best, but, it's their best track sequencing in my opinion....the album just seems to flow* perfectly from one song to the next. Very consistent....I hope that does not sound like I'm damning it with faint praise because I am not.

Bryan Devendorf could be my favorite current drummer. He's just inventive as fuck and my ear fixates on what he's doing without me even thinking about it.

I also like that on two different tracks I was unsure if that was even Matt singing for a few seconds.

So, yeah, I'm digging it a lot and look forward to many more listens. It's nice to have an album on my hands that I legitimately want to live with, as it were, for a while.

*WTF?

Sorry, was someone saying something?


I think I missed a lot since I couldn't be bothered to click the spoilers, then. Or all I saw were the "blaaaah it's not a brilliant song" posts, because in addition to hating everything, all I note is others' hate. Or something. I kinda love that song, though.

And yes, devendorf's drumming = about as good as it gets. First time I heard fake empire, I reached that conclusion and everything since has just confirmed its truth.

Yes, the sequencing and flow is exceptional. Their best in that regard, I'd agree.

Well, we finally have it... the first cobbler-won't-shut-the-fuck-up-about-it record of the year. I'm sorry. How about the ending to Pink Rabbits? "You said it would be painless / a needle in a doll / you said it would be painless / it wasn't that at all" with "when the sound kicks out" and all the instrumentation in the background. Glorious.

I've listened to it probably three, four times now, and already lines from most of the songs are sticking in my head. Don't know about anyone else, but for me, that's the sign of a very, very good album.

I really like these lines:

I'm not alone, (too seriously)
I'll never be. (don't swallow the cap)
Into the bone, (pat yourself on the back)
I'll never grieve (too seriously)
And if you want, (too seriously)
To see me cry, (don't swallow the cap)
Play "Let It Be" (pat yourself on the back)
Or "Nevermind". (too seriously)
