Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-05-27This slow, moody album is the soundtrack to the film of the same name by Vincent Moon. The National seems to be one of the "hot" bands in indie rock these days. I found myself wishing this album would rock a bit, but it is basically well-sung vocals over piano, guitars, and drums, with occasional strings thrown in. It's a nice enough album, with most of the better songs recorded live, including Bruce Springsteen's "Mansion on the Hill". The first song, "You've Done It Again, Virginia", may be of interest due to the guest appearance by Sufjan Stevens. Another highlight is the third track, "Blank Slate". Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth
