The National's hit it strong with their fourth album "BOXER". If you have been waiting for an album that went away from the age of digital enhancements, then go buy this album. This album is brilliantly raw and is a must for your album collection. when Gritty guitars and the very raw vocals of Matt Beringer collide you get an album that is emotionally soothing. You will feel as if your at a personal screening of the Band's mind when listening to this album. From the beautiful empty tone of the first track "Fake Empire" to the peaceful farewell of Santa Clara, "Boxer" is a diamond in the rough.

Greatness Rating: GGGG
