The National - Trouble Will Find Anthony Fantano

It is obnoxious how easily sea of love gets stuck in my head and stays there for weeks.


I still have not seen mistaken for strangers. I get Zack Galafafingerfuckis mixed up with Seth Rogen and I hate Seth Rogen, therefore I hate Galafafingerfuckis.

I haven't seen them since April and I'm not coping well.

The more I listen to it, the more I think about it, the more I think Trouble Will Find Me is becoming one of my all-time favourite albums. I think the chorus to Heavenfaced is pretty much the only thing holding it back. I like Fireproof.

I finally had a connection with this album that I don't have with other National albums.

I have a huge soft spot for Heavenfaced too.

Yeah. As much as I love High Violet i connected with this one more. It's funny because I saw a few sites claiming it was one of Matt's lesser efforts lyrically but it's the lyrics that have made me connect with it so much.

I must confess I have the opposite problem. I keep waiting for the click but it doesn't kick in. Even recently, in recent months, revisiting it after long gaps, hoping it gets better...

I'm being very careful not to rubbish it though. I respect the band and I get that it's really found a place in people's hearts.

High Violet is growing on me a lot.

I heard Alligator the other night (I'm not sure I've heard a National album during the day before tbh) for the twenty billionth time and it's like meeting up with an old friend every time.

TWFM has been awesome since day 1 and subsequent listens only confirm that. This Is the Last Time and Humiliation are top-tier Nash.

I would call Heavenfaced the one sub-par track as well, but in concert Matt sounded fantastic in that register. Amazing how smooth his voice was.

Agreed about the power of the lyrics. Pink Rabbits and Don't Swallow the Cap have become songs I can only listen to on occasion because of how firmly they hit me emotionally. Plus that backing vocal from Van Etten on DStC is perfect.

Yep, me too.

I didn't ask for this pain, it just came over me.

Perfect summation of anxiety/depression, which is something TWFM deals with expertly.

The Morrissey shout-out on Pink Rabbits gives it bonus points as well.

It's a testament to Berninger as a lyricist, that he can articulate how people feel so vividly across a range if themes.

I've never actually been able to emotionally identify too much with the lyrics on TWFM, but Boxer on the other hand resonates wildly with me and I find that many songs on that album hit me a little too close to home sometimes. The lyrics can be very distracting if I'm supposed to be concentrating on something else (driving, work, conversation).

He's brilliant.
