Say what you will for the rest of this but “Quiet Light” and “Light Years” are really creeping their way up my list of favorite National songs.

There are no doubt some killer tracks. But man, The Pull of You is probably the most frustrating tune of all for me. It has the elements in place to be one of their great songs - check out 'Sometimes I Don't Think' played live on YouTube, an old version where they repeat the chorus and just generally jam on it more...no spoken word antics etc. Probably the lowlight of the record for me despite initially loving it haha.

Both spoken word bits have grown off me, they could've been executed much better to be less grating overall I think. Rest of the song is really good though.

I love Matt, but it's cool he took a backseat so the band could offer something with more textures than their previous work. Also the production here is really top notch.

I agree about the production... It's very clear which makes it super easy to hear how disappointing the music is.

"Has anyone else resequenced this album yet? It's much better if you rip some tracks out imo:"



Here's mine:



1.Quiet Light

This is easily the most contrived they've ever been musically. Album feels more like a victory lap than a natural progression. Tbh I don't see them evolving their sound very much more this late into their career.

Hope you're wrong. Could be them getting a good stretch.

me too dude, easily my favorite band of all time, just seems unrealistic to me, especially since this is the first disappointing album they've released in their entire career, save their s/t, which I don't even really count.

Yea, their last 5 albums are so damn good. This ain't bad, but idk. I can't even bring myself to rate it. I just don't know.

I'm hanging tight for their next one.

Is it though? The National are one of the biggest bands in indie and i feel like that song would fit well in a Breaking Bad episode.



I discovered Reuben and the Dark because of the trailer, good shit. That trailer gave me goosebumps.
