    The new album is phenomenal. Most bands putting out 16 songs would seem too long, but I don’t feel that way with this one. Beautiful from beginning to end. 
    Where can you stream new album?   I just know the songs they’ve released.  Or are you basing this off the live recordings ?

    Yeah. I couldn’t resist the leak. I wanted to but I just couldn’t do it. I’m weak.

    Speaking to NME ahead of their I Am Easy To Find album landing on Friday (17 May), frontman Matt Berninger revealed that they had other material from the album sessions, "We gave that to Mike [Mills - director of I Am Easy To Find] too, but he chose the other stuff. We write lots of stuff. We were going to take a year off, then we were going to go back after a long break and go in and try to make a record in two weeks; a rock record, live, those kinds of songs."

    It is very different from what they have had before. I love Matt. A lil something different. It's good, not what I expected from them and believe it will have to get some more spins to grow on me.

    My husband just came in, I told him what it was and his response was, "You are kidding me!" I guess he'll have to listen to it a bit more, because he is just not liking it at all.

    It truly is....Hairpin Turns could be the ultimate potential break up song I've ever heard, so sad

    This is essentially a concept album.  16 songs.  5-7 are really good and then the others are average or filler.   Still not bad music but definitely skipping a lot of songs on this album.

    I'm really liking the new album...
    with all the different "voices" it almost feels like more of a side project than a true album by The National to me.
    It will be interesting to see how they do the new stuff live.
    My favorite tracks so far are Quiet Light, Oblivions & Not In Kansas!!

    Probably should have bought the black vinyl- the clear version is kinda noisy

    Seeing some of it played live last night certainly did help me.  As I suspected, I listened to the album a few more times yesterday and it is growing on me.  Again, I never hated it, but I needed to step away from what I expect from a traditional album from The National and know this isn't it.

    I was thinking the same thing...a little too much on the extra singers.  Would much rather just hear Matt sing!
