I think if I did a list of all time favorite National songs, it would rely heavily on Boxer and Alligator.

Apartment Story is their best one, I think.

That might be my favorite one too, chewm. I love that song so much. Abel and Guest Room are right there too.

Love both of these, Abel is top 5 for sure.

Top 10 right at this moment:
Apartment Story
Slow Show
Fake Empire
Mistaken for Strangers
Abel
Mr November
Terrible Love
England
Geese of Beverly Road
Slippin Husband.

As much as I enjoy Sleep Well Beast, I can't see them replacing any of the songs in this list, only time will tell how they age.

My top 10 would probably be spread out among several albums. They might even be getting better with each album.

I feel the same about Sleep Well Beast. Even if I am liking it more than I initially did, I don’t think it will give me any top ten type songs. Maybe no top 20s actually.

My top 10 or 20 songs would be pretty evenly distributed between Sad Songs, Alligator, Boxer, High Violet, and Trouble Will Find Me. I have several favorites from every one of those albums.

I love Sleep Well Beast, but I think the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Actually, if I hadn't included Slippin Husband (which might be my least favorite out of these 10) my top 10 would exclusively consist of Alligator, Boxer and High Violet songs.

I still think Sleep Well Beast is the best after those 3.

I don’t get why Trouble Will Find Me gets less appreciation than some of the others. I love that album.

I think it's widely beloved round here but it clicked with me less than the others. It has always sounded kinda gray to these ears if that makes sense, and a bit redundant in their catalog.

It has grown on me though. I think I Should Live In Salt is brilliant, and love Pink Rabbits & Humilliations amongst others, I should give it more listens soon.

That makes sense I guess. I basically feel the same way about Sleep Well Beast. Give it a couple of listens though. I love it.
