Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers – The National (2003)

Album of the Week Archive

March 22, 2009

Here begins the first of many posts revisting the pre-blog archives of the Album of the Week.

The very first Album of the Week paid respect to one of the finest albums, all hyperbole aside, of all recorded history. For reals.

Today is the inaugural nomination of Nick’s self indulgent Album of the Week Post
This week check out:
The National
Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers
Track: Fashion Coat

Seems I was a lots less wordy in the beginning. Still, a spectacular record, start to finish. From the mood setting and unconventional opener Cardinal Song to the cathartic epic summit of Lucky You. Words won’t do it any justice. Just have another listen.
