National - National National
Pop New - LP HWY 001 Brassland
Sealed 2001 Debut Album. “This Ohio-Based Band Strikes A Lush, Adorable Balance Between The Country-Pop Of Bands Such As Jayhawks And Golden Smog And The Gloomy, Depressing Crooning Of Tom Waits. Lead Singer Matt Berninger Manages To Transcend Leveling The Fine Background With Some Reflection And Introspection On "Cold Girl Fever" And "Watching You Well." The Country Hues Touched On In "American Mary" Are Only Surpassed By The Album's Perfect Song "Theory Of The Crows," A Morbid Waltz Through Loneliness And Loss. Throughout It All, The Band Manages Not Only To Exceed Their Pigeonholed Genres But Gives A Fresh Perspective With Brilliantly Crafted Numbers. Starting Up Where Wilco Left Off With Their Summerteeth Album, The Group Delivers A Generous Heaping Of Americana And Alt-Country. Brilliant.” – Jason MacNeill, AMG... more details

National - Boxer Boxer
Pop New - LP BBQLP 252 Beggars Banquet
Sealed 2007 Original. "The National Traffic In Poignant Moments Of Heartbreak And Regret, But Pain Has Rarely Sounded So Beautiful" - Spin. “The National Don't Do Anything Radically Different On Boxer, But Then Again, They Don't Really Need To: Their Literate, Quietly Anthemic Take On Indie Rock Seemed To Have Arrived Fully Formed On Their 2001 Self-Titled Debut. Boxer Just Hones In Even More Precisely And Intimately On The Heartfelt Territory The Band Covers, With Punchy-Yet-Polished Production And Orchestration By The Clogs' Padma Newsome Giving These Songs An Intimacy And Widescreen Expansiveness That Rivals The Arcade Fire. The Album's First Four Songs Are Among The National's Finest Work Yet: "Fake Empire" Begins As A Dead-Of-Night Ballad That Echoes Leonard Cohen, Then Peppy Brass And Guitars Turn It Into Something Joyous. The Brooding "Mistaken For Strangers" Touches On The Side Of The Band That Could Be Mistaken For A More Hopeful Joy Division, If Lyrics Like "You Wouldn't Want An Angel Watching Over You?/Surprise Surprise, They Wouldn't Want To Watch" Can Be Counted As Hopeful. "Brainy," A Borderline Obsessive Love Song, Shows Off The Remarkable, Dark Chocolate Richness Of Matt Berninger's Vocals And How Well They Complement The Band's Occasionally Bookish Lyrics, While "Squalor Victoria" Makes The Most Of Newsome's Lavish String Arrangements. The Rest Of Boxer Is Subtler, But No Less Accomplished, With Each Song Supporting The Other As A Classic Album Should. "Apartment Story"'S Hypnotic Chug And "Slow Show"'S Witty, Knowing Affection Make Them Standouts, While The Graceful, Regretful "Ada" Plays More Like A Short Story Than A Song. As Focused As It Is Ambitious, Boxer Is Riveting.” Heather Phares, AMG.... more details

National - Trouble Will Find Me Trouble Will Find Me
Pop New - LP CAD3315 4AD
Sealed 2013 2LP Gatefold Original With Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. “Upon First Spin, Trouble Will Find Me, The Warm, Wistful, And Weary Sixth Long-Player From The National, Sounds A Lot Like 2010's Warm, Wistful, And Weary High Violet, But Where The Former Was Built On A Foundation Of Suburban Despondency And Casual, Middle Class Self-Destruction (And Skillfully Juggled Melodrama And Dark Comedy), The Latter Feels Mired In Regret, Seeking Refuge In The Arms Of Old Friends And Lost Lovers, Sounding For All The World Like A Single Cube Of Ice Lazily Swirling About A Recently Drained Tumbler Of Single Malt Scotch, A Notion Best Intoned On Early Album Standout "Demons," Which Casually Announces "I Am Secretly In Love With Everyone I Grew Up With." Like Nausea, Nostalgia Can Arrive In Waves, And Trouble Will Find Me's Best Moments -- The Propulsive "Don't Swallow The Cup" And The One-Two Sucker Punch Of Pre-Set Closers "Humiliation" And "Pink Rabbits" -- Find Matt Berninger And His Laconic Baritone Nervously Pacing The Deck Of A Sinking Ship While Simultaneously Trying To Find His Sea Legs As His Bandmates Constantly Pull The Rug Out From Under Him With Familiar Rhythms And Melodies That Hide Countless Trap Doors. However, It's That Very Familiarity That Fuels The Ire Of Many Of The Band's Detractors, Especially Those Who Consider Them To Be A Slightly Creepier, American Coldplay, And While There Is Definitely An Intangible, Mad Men-Esque Sense Of Unease That Permeates Trouble Will Find Me, One Could Hardly Use The Words Dangerous Or Forward-Thinking When Dissecting Its Myriad Parts. That Said, This Is The Band That Performed A Chilling Rendition Of The George R.R. Martin-Penned "Rains Of Castamere" Over The Closing Credits Of The Season Two Finale Of Game Of Thrones. For Better Or For Worse, They Perfected Their Sound The Last Time Around, So It’s Hard To Fault Them For Sticking So Close To The Fire, Especially On Such A Snowy Night.” – J.C. Monger, AMG... more details
