back in stock on vinyl. for a band that's been compared to joy division, leonard cohen, wilco, and nick cave and the bad seeds, the national sure sounds a lot more like the czars or uncle tupelo on this sophomore album 'sad songs for dirty lovers'. the band focuses on slow atmospheric songs, it's when it kicks out the jams that the music is the most compelling.. with so many influences rearing their heads and ample musical chops in the bag, the national might not be masters of any one genre, but it creates a fine amalgam nonetheless.
