Artist: The National

Album: I Am Easy to Find

Quite an album. The film is a killer. The songs are wise and observant but with the female voices singing in The Nationals familiar style it adds so much texture to a well trodden National path.  Mike Mills has pulled out the hackneyed musical tricks that threatened to "Coldplay" the last album.  The addition of a vast orchestra means the album has a familiar yet fresh new sound. I've always been a fan but this is the best thing they've done for a decade. 9/10
