Somebody say something controversial to provoke a useless argument so we can get rid of this thread title. It's painful for the eyes.

Like "Conversation 16 is boring" or something.

I don't really care that much for available.

The guitar riff, Matt's vocals, best screaming ever, the powerful and abrasive climax, the lyrics, the fact that it's a monster live...

The National - Trouble Will Find Anthony Fantano

In all honesty, I can't really remember what the song sounds like. Since I went all cobbler backwards starting on high violet with the band, given it always being listed as a favorite here I think I just expected more from it by the time I got to it. It struck me as forgettable more than anything else.

I have Abel for that, though.

I'll just cobbler shit straight up - I still haven't heard the debut or Sad Songs.

And Trouble Will Find Me is my official fav Nash album. And Pink Rabbits might have worked its way onto my Rushmore. It and most of the rest of the album just deals with anxiety so fucking well it's astonishing.

I haven't heard the debut because I've never read anything good about it and I enjoy loving 90% of their songs, just liking 9%, and being indifferent toward that last 1% (or whatever percent of sad songs is that I'm not a huge fan of). I don't want to have to actively dislike a National song.

I just listened to Available, it does rule, although I didn't really recognise it. Prob the first time I've heard the studio version, though I'm certain they would have played at at least one of the four shows I've seen.

I got Available with the Cardinal Song coda the first time I saw them and have been wishing for its return ever since.

I did too, and I was just kind of unimpressed. I attributed it to not knowing the songs beforehand, but I remained unimpressed after hearing the album versions as well.

I did not realize that The National's version of The Rains of Castomere had been commercially released. I just bought it on Amazon.

That's not very controversial, but it's one post closer to closing this thread.
