Reseña de álbum

The National have worn a lot of hats since their 2001 debut, but they’ve never been able to shake the rural, book-smart, quiet violence of the Midwest. The Brooklyn-groomed, Ohio-bred indie rock quintet’s fifth full-length album navigates that lonely dirt road where swagger meets desperation like a seasoned tour guide, and while it may take a few songs to get going, there are treasures to be found for patient passengers. The National's profile rose considerably after 2007’s critically acclaimed The Boxer, and they have used that capital to craft a flawed gem of a record that highlights their strengths and weaknesses with copious amounts of red ink. High Violet oozes atmosphere, but moves at a snail’s pace. The Cousteau-esque “Terrible Love” hardly bursts out of the gate, and the subsequent “Sorrow” and “Anyone’s Ghost” (despite Bryan Devendorf’s locomotive drumming) lack the hooks to reel anybody in on first listen. The album begins to take shape on “Afraid of Everyone,” a slow build, midtempo rocker that expertly utilizes the Clogs' (guitarist Bryce Dessner's other chamber pop band) prickly orchestrations, but it’s the punishing “Bloodbuzz Ohio” that serves as High Violet's centerpiece. Built on a foundation that fuses together TV on the Radio's “Halfway Home” and Arcade Fire's “No Cars Go,” its refrain of “I still owe money to the money, to the money I owe” seems both relevant and nostalgic, resulting in a highway anthem that feels like the anti-“Born to Run.” Other standout cuts, like “Conversation 16,” “England," and the darkly funny/oddly beautiful closer, “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks,” trumpet High Violet's second-half supremacy, but even they tremble beneath the "Bloodbuzz" intoxication. Muscular, miserable, mighty, and meandering, High Violet swings for the fences, but only hits it half the time. [The expanded edition of High Violet includes a bonus disc with an alternate version of "Terrible Love," three live tracks, and four previously unreleased cuts.]

Si bien el grupo se formó durante el resurgimiento del post-punk a fines de los noventa, las influencias de The National se extienden al country-rock, indie rock y Brit-pop. Provenientes de Ohio, la banda terminó por consolidarse en Nueva York como un quinteto compuesto por el cantante Matt Berninger y dos parejas de hermanos: Scott (bajo) y Bryan Devendorf (batería) y Aaron (guitarra) y Bryce Dessner (guitarra). El álbum debut homónimo del grupo apareció en 2001 y obtuvo un excelente recibimiento....
