"The National is in a league of its own... (They have found) their way to a big new sound. " --New York Times Magazine

Product Description

Trouble Will Find Me is The National s highly anticipated sixth album. Formed in 1999, the Ohio-raised, Brooklyn- based band consists of vocalist Matt Berninger fronting two pairs of brothers: Aaron (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar), and Scott (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). The band s previous 4AD release, High Violet (May 2010), was met with critical acclaim.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Return to Form May 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
The short review: If you were a fan of The National's earlier albums but couldn't quite get into High Violet in the same way, you will be very pleased with this excellent album from The National. The sound you love has returned.

I've been a fan of The National since Alligator came out in 2006. Both Alligator and Boxer are two of my favorite albums of all time. I thoroughly enjoyed High Violet, but it didn't live up to my expectations. I found it to be overly dark and hitting on only one note, with lead singer Matt Berninger's deep voice drowning in a sea of heavily distorted guitar that seemed to be missing all the hallmarks of an album by The National.

All of The National's albums can easily be described as melancholy. But with Alligator and Boxer, the sadness was packaged with a certain lightness and clarity. The drumming in their earlier albums was not pounding, but rather inventive. The heavy lyrics were counterbalanced with elegant tunes and music that at times could be defined as more orchestral than pure rock. At their best, The National don't rely on pounding rock to get their point across, but instead craft a complex melody that draws you in.

I'm happy to say that Trouble Will Find Me is a return to their old form. Fans of Alligator and Boxer will find themselves on familiar ground. Although some of the heaviness of High Violet returns, other songs, like the anthemic "Graceless" and the minimalist "Slipped" harken back to the earlier albums. I found as the album progressed I was more drawn in.

All of The National's albums take awhile to fully appreciate and I am skeptical of any early reviews. Avoiding my own advice, however, I can say this is a beautiful album that brings me back to The National's early albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars And to think I was about to give up on this band! May 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of The National since I downloaded Boxer from 5 or so years ago. Many call their songs "growers" cause you listen to it over and over again, but aren't quite sure why because it isn't obviously great, yet when you wake up in the morning all the songs are still rolling thru your head so you listen even more.

So once finally "got" Boxer and I quickly devoured Alligator and the other previous releases by the band. I was in LOVE!

Then High Violet came out and I was disappointed. It was like seeing someone you love for the first time in years and something had changed. High Violet was too dark for me. Too direct, in your face depressing. Every song almost. Depress me some more please! No thank you. I appreciate High Violet but it is not for me and probably near the bottom of my list of albums. Don't get me wrong, I can listen to some songs from it, but listening to the whole CD at once is emotionally exhausting. If you read interviews with Matt (singer) he will even say those lyrics were hard for him. But for this new release they flowed like blood. The difference is obvious.

When the band released a teaser of Trouble Will Find Me a month or two back with "Demons" I wasn't thrilled. Maybe it was the streaming quality. I was thinking, eh, more of the same High Violet vibe and was sad cause my love affair with the band would be wrecked.

But no. I bought this about 10 days ago and have been listening often. After the first listen I knew they were back. Songs with beats that draw you in and make you not care about the words, until one day a special lyric catches your ear and the song as a whole becomes clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars I had forgotten how much I loved these guys.... June 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Simply great. I've been a fan since the beginning, and this rates right up there. As usual, takes a few listens. That Devendorf drummer guy is like no other. I know nothing about drummers, but to me, he is fantastic. Another thing...if you ever have the chance to see these guys live, don't miss them. They really "rock out". I took my wife (Ms. Motown) to a show a couple of years ago. As soon as they started I simply nodded my head and flipped her a thumbs up. She did the same. Looking forward to seeing them again in September with Frightened Rabbit. Now that should be a show. One last thing...I was just listening to "Slipped" #9 in the car and started crying. Laugh if you want. Great band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine Disk, but not their Finest June 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The National's 2010 album, 'High Violet', made my choice for Record of the Year. It is still a great album and the songs that were my least favourite (though never bad), "Terrible Love", Vanderlyle Crybaby" are now my go-to songs.

So when the band "surprisingly" announced a few months ago that they had completed a new album, I was stoked. Yes...I just said "stoked".

I went and pre-ordered 'Trouble Will Find Me', months before it was released. It got me an immediate download of one of their song, "Demons". With that song, the album wasn't off to an auspicious start. You have to get to minute two of a three and one half minute song before there is any kind of melody.

I know that Matt Berninger's baritone can make for challenging lead singer material, but the band has always made it work in the past. I held off on judgement until listening to the entire disk.

With their previous releases, some of their appeal came from their whimsical rhythm section and the occasional understated horns and strings. The drumming here is fine, but doesn't have that certain 'catch' that Bryan Devendorf has become known for. That drumming would literally make me smile - even unknowingly at first. I'm not getting that this go-round.

With 'Trouble Will Fine Me', they deliver a perfectly serviceable album, but it's nothing outstanding. I like that they don't try to make it out to be more than it is.

On 'High Violet' or 'Boxer', any number of songs immediately jumped out as appealing. There is nothing like that here. The closest they come is "Humiliation", "Sea of Love"and "Don't Swallow the Cap".

But the songs, overall, are not overly melodic. That's the best way to describe them.

Bought this on a whim... a little too mellow for my taste. Moody, slow tunes with some catchiness. This is the kind of music that would put me to sleep actually. Read more
