Lol settle down guys - it's not even June

Having said that, the opening track is arresting. One of the best openers I've heard in a long long time. Terrific.

Post title makes me wonder -- does anyone else find saying "New National Album" weirdly odd?

Most bands I don't bat an eye if you drop the "The". Like "I'm a big Beatles fan" is totally fine. Its not a plural thing, because I don't see a problem with "I'm a big Cure fan" either. And like, you certainly wouldn't want to say "I'm a big The National fan".

But like, "I'm a big National fan" or "The new National Album" both strike me as really weird sounding (not as bad as if you kept the The, but still odd). I always find myself wanting to rephrase referring to it as "I'm a big fan of The National".

Can't think of any other band off the top of my head for which this property holds.

Are you high? This is such a high thought/ramble.

this is the album of the year. the only thing i can see topping it for me is if Kanye's record is better than MBDTF, which idk if that's even possible.
