So I got two copies of this album the same day (I only ordered one) both packaged terribly. The first came in a bubble wrap envelope and the cover was bent all over (see photo). The second came in a box and was better - but still bend on the corner. The album play is OK (it was plain black vinyl unlike some of the yellow versions that others seem to have gotten) but the packaging is so bad that I''ll never order another record off Amazon. Stick with your local record shop as much as you can or some of the better online options. Yes, the price was low and the record is not damaged but the cover is part of the enjoyment and Amazon should know that.

"I need some meaning I can memorize," Bright Eyes'' Conor Oberst once sang. It was a great lyric about a universal need--the need to not just find meaning in this complicated world, but to reduce that meaning into simple truths we can take with us everywhere. And this exquisite album by The National sounds like it was tailor-made to fill that bill. In fact, these songs aren''t just memorizable--they''re unforgettable.

First, a little note. By my reckoning, there are two types of music lovers: horn people and string people. Horn people can listen to string music, and vice versa, and large swaths of music have neither instrument, but everyone has a preference between the two. For the most part, horns are happy, upbeat daytime instruments. They do some mournful songs, but it''s not an everyday thing. And so horn people are bright and full of sunshine, and they get married and live in the suburbs and have 2.3 kids and are always in bed by 10.

This is a string person''s album.

But it''s far more than that. "Alligator" is one of the most listenable and captivating and sadly underappreciated albums to come our way since the turn of the millennium. It''s an album with a lot to say about our loves and lives and lies. If you''re anything like me, you''ll listen to it a lot, and the more you listen to it, the more you want to listen to it. And you''ll save it for after nightfall, for it''s one of those lonely, staring-out-your-window-at-the-night-streets albums.

You can trust this album, because it''s honest with its feelings, and because it''s consistent in the best possible sense--not the I-don''t-have-a-lot-of-ideas sense, but the everything''s-in-its-right-place sense. Some of the songs are slow and sad, but even the up-tempo ones aren''t happy; they are just full of urgency and immediacy to counter the smoky languor elsewhere. The guitars are sometimes charged and sometimes mellow, the strings are sorrowful, and everything swirls together beautifully. And floating half-submerged through the mix, we hear Matt Berninger''s wonderful baritone, always sounding as if it''s either drowning in drink or spewing it out in anger. It''s a perfect voice for this music, sadder than the strings, lonelier than the walk of shame.

Some people sing to the masses; Berninger''s singing for an audience of one. You. Actually, it''s not so much you, the listener, as it is "you." You the significant other, you the ex, you the best friend and betrayer, you the member of a relationship so important it rarely needs proper nouns. He does name names, here and there--Karen, John, Val Jester, Abel--but in a sense they don''t matter. "You''re the low life of the party," he sings on "Lit Up", and you don''t know if he''s singing at you or singing your thoughts, but it works either way, because if you''re anything like me, you''ve lived these songs as the singer, or the singee, or both, and you can play your mental Mad Libs and fill in your own names as needed.

Still, one senses this is a deeply personal album. "Yeah say something perfect, something I can steal," Berninger sings on "Baby We''ll Be Fine," and you know (or at least I know, because I spent years quoting my friends and lovers and presenting it as fiction) that''s the line of an artist who is literally putting all of himself into his work. There are plenty of stellar moments on this album, but that song highlights what''s best about this band. In it, Berninger chants "I''m so sorry for everything," over and over, so often you end up thinking the guy must be Catholic. The specific meaning''s enigmatic, but the effect is still hypnotic; these are the mantras we tell others, and tell ourselves, to make this complicated world make sense.

Solid album for anyone who likes earnest 2000s indie. I find myself returning to the same few songs (All the Wine, Abel, Mr. November) and skipping the rest, but there''s plenty to enjoy here.

When I first got this CD I thought it was just puffery and couldn''t get into it. Today it clicked for me and I haven''t stopped listening to it, though I can''t quite say why. This group needs to watch their step... they''re dangerously close to having their music overwhelmed by that chic, hip and... empty ooze that sticks to many irksome indie bands when they get attention. I guess it''s about not being too clever for their own good, staying humble enough to take risks and especially not pursuing polish for its own sake or, worse, cultivating an absence of polish for its own sake. Get it?

Love the National think I have every album now. I didn’t have Alligator on vinyl only on CD. The early albums are poorly pressed and even though I’m fussy when it comes to vinyl pressing quality the music made the clicks and pops more acceptable. When I saw the re-issues for Boxer and Alligator i thought I would order them. The boxer album I already had on vinyl but I read on a website that these remastered reissues sounded better and were pressed better. The original Boxer pressing was really poor and the reissue is better but not great. The sound is not better to any great degree either. Alligator reissue is better sounding but the pressing is worse than Boxer. Lots of ticks or clicks and quite loud ones at that. I’m debating whether to return or not. My cartridge has a stylus which does highlight imperfections (paratrace stylus) but I have lots of records which play perfectly and a lot which may have slight defects but don’t detract. On this pressing each song has at least two or three loud clicks. The grooves between tracks are very noisy too but that doesn’t bother me as ling as the song is quiet. If you’re thinking of buying these yellow reissues you might be better to wait until prices come down further (I paid £15) because I think they will. Albums with low prices often indicate poor pressings where customers have returned their copies.

After finding The National like many others with High Violet, I''ve bought everything since. If you''re reading this I guess you may be filling in the back catalogue too. Listened to Alligator and Boxer lots on streaming and bought this on CD as I still prefer to own physical copies of stuff I like and pay my dues for music I listen to a lot. I can''t add much to the reviews of the songs and it''s easy to listen to this online before buying anyway. Diddly guitars, check. Imaginative off beat drum parts, check, opaque lyrics, check. Words mostly reluctantly allowed to escape Matt Berninger’s mouth, check. If you don’t like one song they are plenty more as this is mostly short and sweet stuff. Strong, minimally produced tunes will become singalongs of the “I don’t know what I’m singing about” variety. Certainly enough on here to keep me happy. Bargain price at time of reviewing, but packaging does not match Amazon image. Mine came in jewel case.

I have all their albums this being the only one I didn''t have. They have been touted by Micheal Stipe of REM as the Next Big thing and I have to agree. Their sound is something different but encompasses everything you like about a Guitar based rock band, enchanting lyrics amazing musical arrangement and just one of those bands you can listen too know matter what mood you are in. I have managed to convert several of my friends and collegues to liking this band and it was purely through playing it in the background, in the car and in the bar I work at. Sit back and enjoy
