Listen to this band? Agree/disagree with my choices? Which is your favorite album by the group? Share your thoughts in the comments


  1. Can't say that I have an overall favorite. Right now it's The Boxer, but next week it could be High Violet, or Sad Songs...

    1. @Bonjour Tristesse: Good choices! Having now listened to all The National's LPs and EPs, Boxer and High Violet are high on the list for me too.

  2. Great picks! I love that you highlighted "90-Mile Water Wall" -- that one just missed my cut. Did you check out their self-titled album at all? Curious what you would think of that one. It's one I rarely listen to myself.

    1. @Eric: Thanks! I did check that self-titled LP, it was my least favorite of the studio albums, and didn't really have any stand-out tracks I wanted to share. Which are the best tracks from that album, do you think, if any?

    2. Yeah, I feel the same way. No real standout tracks at all, as the band seemed to have been struggling to find its footing at that point.


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
