Under the dreary-eyed malaise of ‘Fake Empire’, The National return. Whilst the triumphant fist that previous LP Alligator rose may have lowered, Boxer documents the standard relationship gripes with absolute resignation and, though not quite as immediately arresting and rampant as its plaudit-acquiring predecessor, is an album of understated brilliance.
Among critics and fans, the National's third album Alligator has become synonymous with the term grower. Released to minor acclaim early in 2005, the album has since quietly and steadily built up a large, avid listenership. Matt Berninger's lyrics- initially off-putting and seemingly obtuse in their non sequiturs and stray details- proved unpretentiously poetic over time. His sober baritone and dogged repetition of phrases and passages made it sound like he was trying to figure the songs out in tandem with the listener. It's a testament to the good will engendered by Alligator that fans are now likewise calling the National's follow-up, Boxer, a grower. Despite the scrutiny greeting its release (brought on by the inevitable leaks), many listeners seem to be approaching these songs patiently, giving Boxer the space and time to reveal its dark, asymmetrical passageways. In a sense, the album demands it.
Beggars Japan, Beggars Banquet. This album hijacked my CD-player for a long time when I bought it a few years ago: what an album! The first song starts off with piano and when the band falls in you're in for a ride of twelve amazingly crafted original songs. The music appears simple by using the less is more technique, the drums are quite offbeat and occasionally they use trumpet and trombone which is quite odd for this music.
Touring with the support of fellow New Yorkers Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Alligator slowly but steadily generated critical acclaim and ended the year by being placed on a substantial number of "best of 2005" lists, as well as gaining the support of celebrities such as Bruce Springsteen
