Finally finished this; it's a great watch, particularly if you're a Sleep Well Beast fan. I wore the record out when it first came out, so I haven't revisited it much in a while, but hearing it in this setting is pretty amazing.

New song sounds great. Has some of the vibe that I've personally been missing from recent Nash albums.

Revisited the last record for the first time in a little while, I think that still hovers right under the Alligator/Boxer 1-2 punch as my favorite National record. I'm surprised that it seems like it's had a more mixed reaction than most of their other work; it's a bit ungainly at moments, but it's got such good songwriting, and manages to push at the band's sounds in ways that were unexpected.

I listened to it again yesterday and still think it might be their best. It's in the conversation for sure.
