  • fantastic

  • Probably one of their best. Just catchy
  • This was my first favourite album of The National.
  • rad songs for dirty lovers
  • Second best after Alligator IMO. Cardinal Song, Slipping Husband, 90-Mile Water Wall and Available are all ridiculously awesome.

  • Absolutely brilliant album with amazingly beautiful lyrics.
  • Absolutely brilliant album.
  • 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...
  • i think this might even be my favourite.
  • Their most underrated album for sure. I'll always have a place in my heart for this record.
  • CherryAtomic; I got my vinyl copy the other day and listening to it now again, it's just perfect.. Yes I'm listening..I can tell yoouuuuuuu're serious. Fav moment on the record.
