THE NATIONAL - Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers - Vinyl LP 2021 Remaster


The National’s second album, ‘Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers’ (2003) proved a leap forward from 2001’s eponymous debut, showing a band adept at delivering warm embraces and gut punches in equal measure. With word of mouth now spreading on the band, critics proved equally enthusiastic. Pitchfork in their glowing review called it a “Gorgeous train wreck” that “lives up to its blunt title [with] Matt Berninger’s self-effacing barbs matched by the band’s equally potent hooks,” while Uncut also became early champions, saying the album was “A genuine treasure... Livid as a bruise, this is brave, desperate, beautiful music.” 

Having been remastered at Abbey Road Studios, these 2021 represses stay faithful to their original artwork while their stunning new masters help make these much-loved records sound as vital as ever, further emphasising the early signs of the sound that would go on to make them one of the finest and most beloved alternative bands of their generation.
