NZ Herald- album review 4/5 stars
"this, their fifth album might just be their best""
Groove Guide 4/5 stars
"High Violet is desolately beautiful and compulsively listenable"
“From its painstaking production to its dense lyrical constructs to its mammoth choruses, High Violet is likely to be one of the year’s best.”
The Guardian (UK)
“Crafted from humming guitars, tinkling pianos, militaristic drumming and occasional orchestration, their fifth album is beautifully subtle and grows in power with each listen.”
New Musical Express (NME)
“with ‘High Violet’ The National’s slow and steady evolution can no longer be ignored. This lot are fully grown-up, coloured in and going overground.”
