Sixth studio album from critics’ favourite The National. Following the massive success of ‘High Violet’ and a string of festival headlining spots, ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ has got the music press and fans alike salivating. From the offset this sounds like a band that have honed their craft, lush production and well constructed songwriting and yet I find it hard to understand why The National have become so successful, this is a well worn formula of drab indie melancholia for middle class thirtysomethings to play at dinner parties, like a coffee table Joy Division!
Opener ‘I Should Live In Salt’ is an acoustic ballad that even Coldplay wouldn’t touch with a bargepole, ‘Don’t Swallow The Cap’ finds us in typical National territory with singer Matt Berninger in his usual monotone vocal delivery. There are a few half decent moments here as on ‘Graceless’ which could pass as an Interpol B-side but without the post-punk edge and ‘I Need My Girl’ has a nice bit of plinky guitar on it but still doesn’t seem to go anywhere. I’m sure National fans will love this as it doesn’t really stray away from their signature sound but as far as Norman Records album of the week goes...don’t hold your breath!
PS I am wrong.
