The 11 Best Songs By The National

This week saw the announcements of two highly anticipated upcoming releases.  On SNL this weekend, Kanye West previewed two new tracks from his new album, while on Monday, Microsoft announced that their new console, Xbox One, was coming soon.  When Kanye first went solo, he was considered a better producer than a rapper.  It's like he knew that.  Since then on every album he's upped his rap game along with his studio if his inferiority complex has compelled to be the best in the rap game.  At the same time, when Microsoft introduced their first game console, they were going up against major players with the Sony Playstation and the Nintendo.  Both consoles seemed unstoppable and Microsoft was predicted to be a nothing more than a novelty in a couple of years.  But Microsoft took up the gauntlet and took the Xbox from rookie hype to team leader.  Sometimes in order to be the best you have to start on the bottom and fight your way up.  There's nothing like proving your the best in the game than beating out everyone in your path to get there.

  1. Conversation 16 (High Violet)
