but I instantly loved Alligator, and now after a few months of not listening it sounds a little dull.
but after a few months of listening Alligator smacked me in the chops one day, can't get enought of it now !

Watch the aligators and the boxers slug it out. Acutally in a real fight the aligator would win...
for chronology's sake if nothing else... they are both decent.
still hasnt been replaced as my favourite National song.
The apostrophe key on my keyboard is broken. Forgive me
when I need a National song
Unless The National said they wouldn't make another album unless i sucked them off.
after i saw them live.
Alligator submillinally took over my life.
Although my good friend loved it imediately.. but that was after two years of me going "have you heard The National yet?"
I love, Alligator I have just got am an about to give it a whirl!
he sent be abel about a year before we saw them and i was like.. "meh".
i sicken me.
i did it too. I knew Lit Up for some reason (i guess it was on the radio a bit) and only really took note one day when Secret Meeting was on the radio...
I saw them on Jools a few years back (must've been shortly after Alligator came out) and thought it was alright. I tended to check out the stuff that was on there anyway, so downloaded it, listened once, thought it was a bit 'meh' and left it alone.
Then just over a year ago I was round a friend's house and they put on Looking For Astronauts, and it was a lot better than I remembered. Then I went home and listened to Alligator about 40 times over the next week.
I love them too much now.
that although I said Alligator in the original post, I meant The Boxer
Guest Room is massively underrated too, what a great song.
best album of the 00s threads get into full swing in about 18 months from now it will be very unlikely Alligator won't be top of my list.
..only half of their songs are good and the singers a knob.
how did you get to that conclusion
have you met him?
i thought he was about as sincere as they come
