    The National - High Violet

    I think it's their best/most accessible album.

    You guys really think Boxer is the album Spence should start with? It's one thing if you think it's their "masterpiece," but their most accessible? Hardly.

    I actually haven't listened to Boxer a ton, but regardless of accessibility it's the one that introducted them to the world, where most people listened and decided if they liked the band or not. So it seems fitting for a first-time listener.

    Fair enough. I probably wouldn't have given the National a second chance if I started with Boxer. Does absolutely nothing for me. To each his own...

    I keep Boxer on my MP3 player pretty much purely for Mistaken For Strangers. I think High Violet is far more accessible and has a far wider range, especially for somebody just getting into them.

    I'm gonna thrown in a vote for Alligator. It's where I started. And it's my favorite. Took me a few listens to care about High Violet, fwiw.

    I don't know if it's because I had already gotten through the slow, arduous process of getting acquainted with Boxer and was therefore more in tune with their sound, but High Violet was about 200x more accessible for me the first couple of spins around.

    I think it might be something like that. I liked Alligator on initial listens, saw them live after it came out, and then Boxer was the one that sold me. That said, High Violet is the easiest place for someone to start if they're getting into the National for the first time.

    I think Boxer is undeniably accessible. It was the first album from them I listened to, made me fall in love with them, and to this day remains my absolute favorite.

    5. one of Zappa's live albums, I recommend any of the You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore volumes (there are 7 of them) or Zappa in New York or The Mothers - Live at the Fillmore
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
