you people are confusing being a teenager with being adolescent. you can be a fifty year old adolescent. the period of adolescence is the period of identity formation, which the national project a lot of fear about in all of their albums.

It's not the same thing. Adolescence is that actual process both physically and mentally entering adulthood. Having existential crises doesn't make you adolescent.

if that's how you want to categorize the band's lyrics, by all means. if anything i think an existential crisis both predates and succeeds adolescence, and usually occur periodically during a time of adolescence as a trademark of it, so what's your point? i haven't had an existential crisis since departing adolescence

i will say, never has such predictable music gotten such acclaim. i mean did anyone really expect anything more than what they got here? so many bands get slandered the house down when they become this predictable

Anthracks: I'm very happy with where I'm at in life, but I can still relate to the National in the same way I can Elliot Smith or any number of other bands that aren't traditionally 'happy.' Sadness can be beautiful, and acknowledging its existence is important. You wouldn't enjoying your happiness now if you'd never experienced sadness.

i can still feel the band, i wouldn't have it rated at 4/5 if i couldn't. no need to exaggerate my criticisms



the band clearly has only one trick up their sleeve. any other band would get torn to shreds, but this is The National

could be. i'm just saying this is an object lesson in the lengths people will go to justify the worth of music, as opposed to simply saying "because i like it," 'cause that's not good enough for some people even though that's all there is
