***** The second taste ahead of their album release was a much more traditional sounding track from The National, showing that it wouldn't be a complete departure from their winning formula. This is gorgeous and heartbreaking, with Matt's vocal simply stunning. The way he's able to convey such meaning into any lyric, however random, is amazing. The piano melody, from the opening notes is beautiful, evoking a real feeling of nostalgia tinged with sadness. It's the perfect choice for this song and elevates it to another level. This song made me very excited for what the album had to offer, and while it isn't my favourite song on there, it's still breathtakingly brilliant.
