Trouble Will Find Me is The National's highly anticipated sixth album. Formed in 1999, the Ohio-raised, Brooklyn- based band consists of vocalist Matt Berninger fronting two pairs of brothers: Aaron (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar), and Scott (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums).

I'll spare you a lot of superfluous verbiage. It seems to me that the long and short of it is this: if you like The National's work so far then you'll love this. If you don't you won't. I most certainly do.
Hats off to the Ohio-born, Brooklyn-based five-piece for not going stadium-sized too when it must occasionally be financially tempting to morph into U2 mode. Indeed, in places, the retiring Trouble Will Find Me is perhaps the opposite of what one might expect at this stage of their wonderful fourteen-year career. The stark power of teary stripped-back cuts such as "Slipped", for example, are just as striking as trademark moments of heavy-hearted rapture like "Graceless", during which Matt Berninger`s baritone stands firm against swooping torrents that race past with almost elemental inevitability.
The National are a precious band, one that already mean the world to some and with the lump-in-throat "I Need My Girl" they're only cementing this position. Its plucked strings fire off like welding sparks as, amidst a drizzle of ghostly harmonica, Berninger dictates the melody with tempo changes. And though this bittersweet anthem for the lovelorn has a straightforward message it delivers as massive and immovable a statement as erecting a granite monolith in driving rain.
That there's no seismic shift in direction is comforting, especially when one considers the large supporting cast which includes backing by the likes of St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten and Nona Marie Invie of Dark Dark Dark.Read more ›
This is a tough album to type, as The National are placed generally in the indie-rock category, but there isn't a lot of the rock side of things here. They fit nicely into a sort of subdivision with Nick Cave and Joy Division with the mostly deep vocals and a quite dark feel, yet somehow the dark nature of some of the music and lyrics allow this to be an album that proves to be surprisingly relaxing. Indie-rock isn't generally a preferred genre of mine and I'm far more of a fan of upbeat and up tempo music, but despite my personal preferences, I found "Trouble Will Find Me" to be a consistently high quality album and it's certainly one that I will listen to over again when I need to set a relaxing mood. At 13 tracks and 55 minutes long, it's great value.

I consider myself a fan and recently reconsidered myself as a terrible one when I failed to realise there was a new release, 'Trouble will find me'.
Like a fat kid in a sweet shop I had a smile ear to ear, fingers clutched around a copy and almost body-popping in the queue with excitement.
I will have trouble finding anything 'negative' to comment on here, which may give the impression of being biased but I honestly can't.
Every track is a gem. You get your album where a dodgy track will have you skipping through sometimes but I didn't touch anything. I sat back, volume up and The National treated me to brilliant melancholy leaving a smile on my face.
I challenge you not to sing 'I need my girl' for a few days after hearing. I'm still having trouble and it's been two weeks.
Like an onion it has many layers and I'm discover each one, more and more, with every listen.
If you haven't listened to these guy's give them a go, your missing out. A very, very talented group of guys delivering some quality music and I can't wait for the next album.
What a band!

Splendidly dark, incredibly rich album, full of obscure lyrics and fantastic imagery. Brilliant growers, catchy earworms, and the album just sits together so well. A favourite.Published 29 days ago by Mike
