2010 UK Deluxe Limited Edition 11-track 2-LP set pressed on Heavyweight Violet Vinyl - Recorded at the band's own studio in Brooklyn, with further recording and mixing at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, Connecticut with Peter Katis, the music on 'High Violet' is wide-ranging in it's moods, by turns intimate and rough, expansive and spare, full of stark angles and atmosphere. Matt Berninger's singing - wild, half-broken, sly- evokes a feeling of being haunted, by love, by paranoia, by something just out of reach. 'High Violet' may be The National's most thematically twisted record to date but it somehow also manages to be their most infectious and immediate. Includes the single 'Bloodbuzz Ohio'. Presented in a thick card metallic-embossed gatefold picture sleeve complete with violet inner title sleeves, housed in a stickered clear PVC sleeve.
