5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime late night listening..., 3 Aug. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boxer (Audio CD)
If you're a fan of The National already, you know you are in for a real treat for the ears. This isn't soul music but it's music for the soul. A much more meditative album than 'Alligator' or 'High Violet' but no less rewarding. It's lyrically intricate but hugely satisfying. A sample line from 'Mistaken for Strangers' goes 'Well you wouldn't want an angel watching over you. Surprise, surprise they wouldn't want to watch'. Pretty ace.

The real proof is in the opening track, 'Fake Empire', which builds to a beautiful horn fanfare crescendo and it's easily the best song that they have in their songbook. They paint a beautiful picture and if you're in any doubt, just listen to 'Fake Empire' and you should be sold. Although not my favourite album by The National (that honour would go to 'Alligator'), it's one of their most rewarding that give repeated listens that extra sparkle.
