I love Matt's baritone voice, it brings me a little bit closer to God every time I hear him sing!

I loved High Violet, but if it's somehow possible, this album is even better. AOTY

Most beautiful album I've heard since Bon Iver's self-titled.

Between this, sigur, kanye, QOTSA and deafhaven, AOTY is going to be so tough. As great as they were, I could see frightened rabbit and James Blake not even making the top ten.

Good insight, I will keep trying and hopefully it will click. What album is most accessible for newbies?
I second what this guy said about having it click with Afraid of Everyone. Check out the album Boxer, specifically the songs "Mistaken for Strangers" and "Slow Show." From there check out High Violet, which took me a bit to get into. At first I was like, that's not nearly as good as everyone says, but then I kept going back to it again and again and now they're one of my favorite bands. Hopefully same thing happens to you!

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.
I tend to do this for most "The" bands. Like I don't like saying I'm a Smiths fan, always fan of The Smiths.

"Hard to Find" just absolutely capped that album off for me. Unreal.

Probably only Kanye or O'Brother (if they release one) could top this for me as AOTY.

Abel and Apartment Story (in alphabetical order) still, and probably always shall, remain my top two favorite The National songs.

That having been said... the remainder of my top ten just got summarily, and, dare I say, Gracelessly, replaced.

Graceless, Slipped, Sea of Love, Demons, I Should Live In Salt, Pink Rabbits, Hard To Find, Don't Swallow The Cap, I Need My Girl...

Wow, just... wow.

The least songs on this album are at the worst, merely good.

Pedestrian Verse is now my second favorite album of the year.

Trouble Will Find Me is hands down my AOTY.
