Sleep Well Beast is The National's most vibrant and engaging set of songs in years.

Listen to Sleep Well Beast by The National on Deezer.

The National shine on Sleep Well Beast, their first album in four years. Sleep’ is an adventurous alt-rock LP unafraid of darkness and experimentation.

Sleep Well Beast is the seventh studio album by American indie rock band The National, released on September 8, 2017 through 4AD. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album at the 60th Grammy Awards.

Sleep Well Beast Lyrics. We've been stuck out here in the hallway for way way too long I'm at a loss, I'm at a loss, I'm losing grip, the fabric's ripped Go back to sleep, let me drive, let me think, let me figure it out How to get us back to the place where we were when we first. went out. I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left

Sleep Well Beast is the seventh album from American indie rock band The National, released on September 8, 2017. In an interview with Rolling Stone, lead singer Matt Berninger said about the album: about marriage, and it’s about marriages falling apart. I’m happily married, and but it’s hard, marriage is hard and my wife and I are writing the lyrics together about our own struggles and it’s difficult to write, but it’s saving my marriage

Sleep Well Beast is their seventh album, and their first attempt at inviting some of that disruptive energy into the studio. Making records with this band has sometimes sounded about as fun as a forced-bonding office retreat, but this time they built a studio in a pastoral area of upstate New York that muted intraband creative friction. As Berninger memorably put it, It’s hard to be a dick when you look out the window and there’s this tranquil pond

EU blue vinyl here which sounds clean as anything, with no pops and hisses to be found. Not saying they'll all be perfect but it's certainly not true to say that all copies of the album, or indeed all colour records, have the same sound issues. And as for 'Turtleneck': I figure it's meant to represent the 'beast' that is kept at bay for the rest of the songs, but which is only 'sleeping' so makes an occasional appearance.

Sleep Well Beast is the sound of one of the best bands of this decade pulling new sounds into their repertoire and making those sounds wholly theirs. It's difficult to deny music this well-crafted and affecting-and perhaps being able to make anything beautiful and affirming in the Trump era is notable. This is the band's best album since Boxer, and will stand as one of the year's best. As with all of the band’s works, ‘Sleep Well Beast’ is an album that rewards repeat listens and unfurls its beauty slowly over time: The National have yet again made an album that’s as brilliant as it is ambitious.

Great pressing with plenty of depth and delicacy. Sorry to hear others have suffered with dirt and surface noise - no such problems here. If it's faulty, return it - still no shortage of these in stock around the country.
This blue record version has some surface noise. Recording and mastering is very good so perhaps a black version would be an idea. Perhaps the coloured vinyl at last has seen its days, I hope. And to conclude I also hope that the country of origin of a pressing will be re-introduced instead of "Made in the EU". Pressing plant of this album is unknown as far as I know. Performance: 5 star. Pressing: 3 star.
White version sounds much better than the blue. 2 more words...
I think this would be a 5 star release albeit the track Turtleneck. Every time the track comes on I feel like the flow of the album just breaks. Sounds like a midwest barband to me. Otherwise great album, tho, it's no Trouble Will Find Me. As for the pressing, it's FAIR. Clean for the most part, but when it has surface noise, it HAS surface noise.
I noticed just the same on Turtleneck. It sounds annoyingly hissy and crispy, compressed as hell. Of course the album came from a digital source, but mastering job was very good and made this version noticeably more punchier, deeper and cleaner than the digital variants.
Fairly good pressing, but a bit of surface noise throughout. My blue EU records were covered in cardboard flakes brand new out of the packet so pulling it out that first time sounded like nails on a chalkboard. Had to replace the inner sleeves with poly ones.
Just finished the first play through of my Blue vinyl EU issue. Not amazing but a good presing, I always clean records before playing (vinyl revival) a little bit of surface noise on the run ins but otherwise clean. I have the yellow vinyl of boxer and the quality is very similar to that, if not a bit better. No warping, pressed on centre. Packaging is good... would have been nice to get poly lined sleeves though. As for the music.... side b with the single on it stood out after the first listen... definitely a grower.

Good pressing. Did not find any noise or distortion.. if there is some, go change to a new one
My blue copy sounds pretty good. There is, unfortunately, always the possibility that bad pressings are out there. I always clean my records with my RCM before I play them.
I got this version of the LP today in my local record store (i.e. "4AD0020LPE MADE IN EU", translucent blue). I like the songs/music after a first listen, but I am sad to say that I am disappointed with the pressing. Especially disc 1 has a lot of surface noise. Note that the noise is not due to particles that can be swept away with a record brush. It could possibly be due to microscopic vinyl particles still lying around in the grooves, I do not know. I will have to clean this album before I know if that might help.I should add that on my disc 1, I find track B2, "Born To Beg", especially noisy, with almost a constant foundation of pops and audible, undesirable artefacts.Disc 2, on the other hand, sounds much better. It is almost like the two discs were pressed at different pressing plants, or by different people.I would be very interested in hearing other people's experiences with this pressing.
The surface noise is due to a rougher surface of the record. If you look at the record you will see a rather rough surface, not mirror smooth. That's what you hear as a kind of rumble. The better your speakers or head phones, the more annoying this defect will be. There is no cure, cleaning won't help. Only improvement could be a little less bass. Recording is very good and mastering is loud and with enough bass. One of the perfect imperfections......No use replacing the album, most if not all will show this defect. Maybe black vinyl would be the cure.
I was expecting a lot worse, but to be honest this pressing didn't sound that bad to me.
The digital download offers 320 kb/s MP3 files only, i.e. no FLAC files or similar.
I went back to the store and got a new copy. I have given it a thorough listen, and it sounds great throughout, a very silent background. A big difference compared to the previous copy.
Hi, could you possibly let me know what quality download is offered with the vinyl? Sometimes they have a high quality, other times not. Thanks
Same problem here. The sound is unbearable. It sounds like old discs which have accumulated sticky dust on the surface.
Return it ...get a new copy. Mine is almost totally silent
I got surface noise on A2. Pretty on tracks 1 and 2.
