Agree with you up until I Am Easy To Find. I just don't think that one is better than Sleep Well Beast. I don't think SWB is better than TWFM either, but it is better than IAETF.

I'm not suggesting that each new album is better than the ones before. Rather, every album since Alligator has been better than Alligator.

I’m not a big fan of Sleep Well Beast. I definitely like Alligator better than that one.

I agree about Alligator. But it's more a factor of how good the band has become than that album being poor.

Very excited for Matt's new album coming out next week.

Abel is the song that starts playing when my phone decides it's gonna connect to the radio and play music on its own. I always listen to it.

Guys, there are lots of great songs on Alligator. Obviously the band has matured and written some incredibly brilliant music since then, but Alligator is still has at least half a dozen damn good songs.

Is the Matt album good? I love The National but can muster no enthusiasm for it.

I don’t think anyone disagrees with this.

I'm not 100% sure, but those tracks might be vinyl-only.
