Best thing Paul Epworth has ever produced is the single version of Friendly Fires’ Skeleton Boy.

I consider Sea of Love to be a towering achievement for them, so I wouldn’t mind hearing it again!

Woah now – Darts of Pleasure was every bit Take Me Out’s equal. The final chant in German is *excellent*.

Trying to envision The National soundling like a muscular rock band. That just doesn’t seem in their DNA to me, but I’ll be damned if Sea of Love isn’t a ROCKIN’ song.

As for this – I really enjoy it.

Dimensions is one of the most moving pieces of music I’ve heard. In the context of the film, it’s amazing.

A welcome return to the progginess of their first album.

Michael’s right – what we’re seeing now is, instead of a traveling tour like old Lolla, Warped Tour, etc., we’re seeing localized festivals draw the same 20-30 bands that are touring at the time. For a country the size of the US, I don’t really mind this as it’s hard to expect someone to fly to different festivals in order to catch certain acts and pay all the money required to do so. England & Europe are different, which is why you see different headliners at T in the Park vs. Reading or V Festival or Glastonbury.

In the aggregate, it festivals seem to be becoming very homogenized, but I think that’s just what ends up happening when people all over the country want to see similar acts or these acts are all touring at the same time.

Really think that the top 5 should basically be songs 1-5 on Hot Fuss. Hard to imagine them bettering that run…ever.
