It’s been a week (and a day) since Trouble Will Find Me by The National has been out. To cut straight to the point, I absolutely love it. At this point it’s my favorite album of 2013.
I don’t know if it’s their best album, I suppose it might be. High Violet is still the one that got me into this band so maybe I don’t have the best perspective to say so. I do like how this album opens with “I Should Live In Salt” as opposed to how High Violet opened with “Terrible Love”. I’m not crazy about that song as an album opener.
My favorite song is probably “Sea of Love”. However, my favorite lyrics are in “Don’t Swallow the Cap” (^ post title quote). I’m mostly just impressed with how high my expectations were for Trouble Will Find Me and how The National still managed to exceed them. This band is just good.
