I was pretty uncertain about the new National album going into it, but I ended up liking it a lot.

To me, Exile is the perfect synthesis of the band’s various influences, from rock to blues to country to gospel. It’s astounding that a British band holed up in a recording studio in France could sound so American.

Plus, how can you deny songs like “Rocks Off” and “Happy” and “Tumbling Dice”?
