I must say that this is one of my favourite bands. They latest album Boxer is, like the one before, real masterpiece imho..It' been out for some time, I know, but I just want to recommend it to everyone who likes great music, especially rough male vocals..( hint: Nick Cave:))..songwriting is superb on this album and songs are very melodic..this album has almost no mistake made, but if I had to say something I must confess that on Aligator there was more variety of the songs which is why lots of people prefer Aligator..it is up to you to decide..in the end, again great album for The National..can't wait to see them live again:)
p.s. I know review was a bit unproffesional, but I can't help myself:))
I gave them 10/10!
