Come to Montreal, man. We'll have a blast.


I want to, but we're going to St. Louis in May and there goes my travel budget.

I can't wait for this album. High Violet has basically been on repeat for the past 4 weeks for me. It is incredible and just keeps getting better with every listen.

I don't feel the need to listen to these guys all the time anymore, but when I do, I still love what I hear.

Listening to this right now for the first time in awhile. Probably my favorite National album. I think they've improved with each one.

I love Boxer, but could never really get into Alligator.

I might have ranked High Violet over Boxer if Runaway didn't exist. That song is a real turnoff.

Spun Alligator...fucking phenomenal record.

I'm not so sure it's not as good as Boxer & High Violet.
