  2. Build a fire for Val Jester Build a room for your love Take your time when you tell her How she lives in your blood You should have looked after her better You should have looked after her more You should have locked the door Fill her coat with weapons And help her get it on 'Cause one day when she goes She's gone She should have held onto her.
  3. Alligator is the third studio album by American indie rock band The National, released on April 12, on Beggars Banquet. Recorded and produced by Peter Katis and Paul Mahajan, the album brought The National critical acclaim and increased their fanbase significantly. Alligator appeared on many year-end top 10 lists, including Uncut and Planet Sound, both of which ranked it as the number two.
  4. The National may sound like a garage band turned down, but there's as much primal energy lurking behind Alligator as in any mop-topped group of city kids with bloodstained Danelectros in a dusty warehouse. While Matt Berninger's lyrics and conversational delivery rely heavily on the kind of literate self-absorption that fuels so much of the indie rock scene today, he never comes off as preachy.
  5. This is why song placement in an album is a real issue. From my perspective, it appears Val gets lost after Friend of Mine, a faster song, and before All the Wine, arguably the best composed song on Alligator. It's not that Val is bad, it just gets masked by what's around it.

All this notwithstanding, the songs sound excellent on vinyl, but BB should be ashamed. Reply Notify me Helpful /5().
  8. May 14,  · However, I also feel like this album is overall a better album musically. Everything on here from the instrumentals to the lyrics are much better than anything on The National's previous projects. Because of this, I decided to give this a higher score than either of their previous albums.
