The National – Terrible Love
I saw The National on Wednesday at the Hammersmith Apollo. It was a show that sometimes lost a little momentum due to the very nature of the songs The National write. However, this was noticeable only because of those occasions when the band strung together a selection of songs and got the pacing of the show completely right.
Off the new album songs ‘Bound to Beg’ and ‘The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness’ stood out, but I’m choosing ‘Terrible Love’ which they finished with.
