Fairly run of the mill National songs.

Which means they're significantly above average.

I'll be hopong for better come the new album, though.

Just saw them in Montréal, had a great time. They played "I Need my Girl", which I thought was the worst song on the setlist - it's too cliché and run-of-the-mill for that band. I'll agree that Rylan is really good, though.

I really liked "I Need My Girl" when they played it last night in T.O. I guess I was just in that acoustic chill mood tho lol.

Also, is it just me or does the acoustic riff from 'I Need My Girl' sound fairly similar to the ending acoustic riff in 'Impossible Soul' by Sufjan?? Or is it just the pull-off..

'England' and 'Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois' sound similar too, but hey.
