    “I Had Forgotten How Much I Loved These Guys…. ”

    Simply Terrific. Ive been a fan since the beginning, and this rates right up there. As usual, takes a couple of laughs. This Devendorf drummer guy is like no other. I understand nothing about drummers, but to me, he’s fantastic. Another thing. . .if you have the chance. They rock out. I took my wife (Ms. Motown) to a show a couple of years back. As soon as they began I simply nodded my head and turned her a thumbs up. She did the same. Looking forward to seeing them again. That should be a series. 1 final thing…I was listening to Slipped #9 in the car and started crying. Laugh if you would like. Fantastic band.

    “Beautiful, Emotional, Interesting”

    The Nationals brand of rock and roll has more in common with avante garde literature compared to Chuck Berry however their command is evident with this record. We’ve got this crystallized trek through thirteen songs, after High Violet’s songs showing the capacity of beats behind Matt Berningers stream of consciousness vocalizing. The Dessner and Berninger brothers mix yearning, hoplessness, adore, and hopefulness with little to complain about. Some might find error in the polished feel of the tunes, complaining of more hooks and schmaltz, but thats an opinion clouded by a love of The Nationals past work.Listening to this record in one sitting is advocated as the tunes work together to paint an image of profound emotion and yearning without ever being overly gloomy, as if a decade of heartbreak to get a twenty-something gave way to emotional and personal equilibrium and together with it the wisdom that comes from those tumultuous years. Its a retrospective evening’s equivalent saturated in wine.

    “Another Masterful Depiction Of Character”

    This is another dark and brooding series of musical monologues by a personality living on the margins and struggling to rise above the darkness, to fit in, to make sense of his life and find something worth living for. Its has the same sound and topics as High Violet, a five star rock classic in my book. It took me several listens to conclude this new album is at least as good, hell, maybe even better, even though it doesnt actually break any new ground for the ring so that it took me awhile to realize just how great that one is too. Ill be casually listening to this record, not paying close attention, and suddenly some rather evocative chunk of lyrics will permeate my consciousness and Ill think, wow, that point is so great, it conveys so much meaning and sense, conveys a lot depth of character, in only a few words. Thats charm and the beauty of this band. Humiliation is the standout. Other fantastic songs which will definitely grow on you with repeated listening comprise I Want My Girl, Fireproof, Pink Rabbits, … wait a moment, almost ALL of them, or even all these, will finally make your rotation if you provide them a chance.
