The reason this is here is a funny story. So I was sitting at my table the other day eating... something, when my mother called me.She asked if I could download and burn her the new National album. Now, I am a huge fan of Boxer and it is easily one of my favorites albums of all time, and since I hadn't heard High Violet I figured I would. I wasn't a fan. At least compared to Boxer it wasn't really all that. But maybe it will end up like Boxer, a couple of listens should cement its place in my mind. It was good, but not as good.
