The National Ranked Cylindrically

don't worry, this hurts me as much as it hurts you...

The National


These guys' Pablo Honey essentially, tho I would take this over Pablo Honey
6The National
Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers


A massive step-up from the debut, obviously very inspired. But the variety doesn't always hit the mark.. this album is the only one of theirs with songs I actually kinda dislike. The highs are splendid tho
5The National
Trouble Will Find Me


Don't get me wrong, I love this album to bits. This is just where it had to land. honestly when this came out I was kinda hoping it'd be something more like Sleep Well Beast.. but now that we have SWB i'm extra grateful this is a part of their discog.. their first step into a 'bigger' sound without freaking people out with a song like 'Walk it Back' (yet).
4The National
Boxer


Quintessential. A number of their most classic tracks are on here, including Apartment Story, a top 5 song of all time for me. if i was forced to find a critique tho, it does get slightly homogeneous, and i'm really not a huge fan of Gospel. album hardly suffers for it tho
3The National
High Violet


this was the album coming out when i first got into these guys.. memories. has the sweeping grandness of TWFM but while still kinda sounding like the band that made Boxer. i kinda gotta be in the right mood for Lemonworld, but every other track tears me apart.

Alligator


My favorite album of all time until SWB came out
1The National
Sleep Well Beast


My new favorite album! I say that cheekily, but idk maybe it is. it's like the band was keeping tabs on some of the music i've been getting into the most lately and said "nah man. we gotchu." boy do they ever. i get that this album might be the band becoming unfamiliar to some, but for me it was the opposite. can't get enough.
