    I think this is kind of underrated. Most people seem to rank this quite low in the National's discography. Well, it's hard when all of their discography is flawless, I guess.

    Patterns of Fairytales is the most underrated song on this album.

    I used to underrate this masterpiece. How foolish of me. Have not stopped listening to SSfDL since October.

    Lucky You is just the best possible song to end an album on [2]

    Second best after Alligator IMO. Cardinal Song, Slipping Husband, 90-Mile Water Wall and Available are all ridiculously awesome.

  • JulienMiller almost everything by The National. It's really the vibe and the lyrics and the way they are sung that get me though...

    sometimes I listen to this an imagine what it'd be like if Matt were in a screamo band. It'd be awesome but I'm sure his voice would be ruined if that were the case.

    This is seriously better than their other albums. Track two blows my balls of their hinges. [987]

    i think this might even be my favorite [2]. I really dunno if I prefer this one or Alligator, but Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers REALLY is amazing in soooo many ways...
