It seems I'm the only one, but I'm slightly disappointed in the new album from The National. Even for a band that doesn't change up its style very much at all, this album just feels "safe," like it was tailored to get a strong review from indie critics. Half of the drums sound like they were sampled from various tracks on Boxer. I have to say it's hard not to be slightly bored by it. This coming from a guy who thought High Violet was probably their best album ever, though
"Demons," "Hard to Find," and especially "Humiliation" are all really good songs though.
My previous signature was getting old. This is my new one.
