A Second-Chance Song for Wednesday

Last year, I downloaded The National's album Alligator from emusic. I listened once and was bored, so I never went back to it. I'm not usually crazy about Leonard Cohen-esque (non)singers, so I felt especially confident in my dislike. That didn't keep me from downloading the band's follow-up, Boxer. Wasn't crazy about it, either, but it recently popped up on my iTunes and I found myself warming to it. Now I kind of love it. This is the band performing "Fake Empire" on Letterman...

Glad you gave it a second chance. I didn't particularly love Alligator either, but am totally smitten with Boxer. It's gorgeous.

I had the same first impression of both (bored). I will have to go back and listen again.
