The National Lyrics


The National’s fifth album, High Violet, will be released
on their new label 4AD on May 11th. It was the first to be
recorded at the band’s own studio in the Ditmas Park
section of Brooklyn, with mixing by long time associate
Peter Katis at his Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport,
Connecticut. Pulses and impulses pull against each other
creating a balance of tension. Let’s call it musical
tensegrity: engineered to stand up in unlikely ways, the
album is a triumph of sonic architecture; adorned with
unexpected, alchemical, and happenstance More...

Review about The National songs
Blissful stoner music | Reviewer: bodysurfer52
    ------ About the song Don't Swallow The Cap performed by The National

I could listen to this all day slow-f***ing the good memories
of what this world used to beach. This is the music that I play
now for the somberness of adulthood to remind me of the blissful gratitude of childhoood, lucky to have amazing adventures, beautiful places, and a few good mentors along the way.
I will be soaking in some more of The National this summer. Where have I been? Hello, Radio Project.
some stellar lines: I have only two emotions/Careful fear and dead devotion
I have faith but don't believe you/This love ain't enough to leave you perfectly describes what any long-term couple has to go through as they age....gosh, it's a capsule snapshot of a relationship in hopeful turmoil.
Above all, just the hypnotic beat, it's a good, slow-burning throb.
And of course, the clear blue dichotomy of "everything I love is on the table" /"everything I love is out to sea" covers the hopeful disarray that most deep thinkers stumble through daily.
...and, Lord, if we all could only get around that river in front of us.
What's yours??

I love this song! | Reviewer: Alicia
    ------ About the song Bloodbuzz Ohio performed by The National

I love this song, it has so much meaning to it. From the moment I heard it, I fell in love with it. It's pure talent for a person to write a song like this. This will always be one of my favorite songs.
