iTunes Review

Since The National's 2001 debut, the world-weary baritone of frontman and songwriter Matt Berninger has become one of the most compelling voices in Brooklyn’s well-groomed indie scene, begging comparisons to darkly tempered rock outsiders like Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen. The follow-up to 2010’s celebrated High Violet is a set of beautifully produced contemplations on shadowy love, self-destruction, and urban ennui. Chipper? Hardly. But songs like “Demons,” “Heavenfaced,” and “I Need My Girl” are impossible to shake.

No High Violet, No Boxer, and certainly No Alligator. For that matter, I think Sad Songs For DIrty Lovers may be superior to Trouble Will Find Me. The problem starts with the title itself: "Trouble Will Find Me???" What is this -- an R&B album? Trite title. The music isn't TERRIBLE. In fact, lyrically and the straight forward songwriting may make it more accessible than their other albums. I would recommend Boxer for first time listeners and then move on to their high water mark, Alligator.

I think National fans will find things to appreciate, but I think many will be disappointed. I'm not a fan of the simpleized lyrics. The problem is, there will be a a lot of first-time listeners who will deprived of a finer introduction to one of the superior bands of the past decade.

No offense. I think you guys are really original though! :)?
