7/10 Alastair Customer review, 2nd September 2014
The Boxer LP (released on beggars Banquet) from The National finds the Ohio quartet, well on the way to perfecting their now trademark dour sound, on this their fourth
Although released in 2007 the LP more than hints at the sensationally, sombre, sound they would perfect by the time last years “Trouble Will Find Me’ came out.
Despite the enjoyable,competent, musical, tones that flood this LP its the beautifully harrowing lyrics that make it stand out for me.
From the direct attacks on their country of origin to the tender treatment of love, this is an album that demands full attention from the the listener.
Doing the dishes to this, risks missing the point.
