I just think it's interesting to see an articulate, dissident review on an album I love. It makes me think about it more.

The thread title is pretty funny too.
I really don't get what the big deal is about the thread title. But, I'm sure anything I say is just going to look like I'm sticking up for LeMel just because, so I'll just leave it at that.

I also found it amusing, given the circumstances of the reference.

Doesn't bug me in the least, but I don't even know who the Fantano guy is.

He's a hipster! And he only likes abrasive music.

Great logic. Too bad I haven't referenced, posted or watched this review at all. Thread title != music review? Nah.

In any case, it may turn out wonderfully random in time as it was already mentioned. Or even more annoying. Time will tell.

To get back on topic, I'll say no more except... Good stuff, this record.

He's a great drummer, but I wouldn't go this far, especially when people like Matt Cameron, Gavin Harrison, Jimmy Chamberlin and Danny Carey are still active. I'm sure I'm missing a lot more.

Devendorf's a boss. It's not so much about technical proficiency (tho he obviously has great chops), more about the imaginative drum patterns. The drums are what drive many of The National's best tunes.

All those drummers I've mentioned may be technically proficient, but they carry the songs as much as Devendorf does and have tremendous feel for the music, making their playing essential to the sound of their respective bands (Chamberlin has however quit the Pumpkins... good for him I say). I'm really the last person who would push technical proficiency over "feel" and innovation.

This line definitely caught my attention (I've only been through the record once so far). It captures that feeling of flying off the handle when you're all alone and then still feeling embarrassed about it afterward. We've all been there, I think.

Wouldn't it be funny, after all this discussion, if Berninger dropped a 'trouble will find Fantano' into some concert performance. A sort of 'don't believe in Goldman, his type like a curse' moment.

Are you calling me a troll? Yes, obviously he would do no such thing in any concert. Jesus.
