The whole story of the song…the bitterness and that whole part about sucking people off…it was so bitter and heavy, and it made me view The National completely differently. After “Crows”, I stopped thinking of them as so much sad as sarcastic in a lot of ways… and I love that drawing. It’s my wallpaper now.

I’ve got a small pool of friends who like The National, but a lot of them are only into HV, or a few songs from each album. So I at least have a good idea of what’s “popular” (Bloodbuzz, About Today, Geese…surprisingly not Fake Empire). And then just based on reviews and posts I’ve seen various places.
