The National is big … and not just in France

The National’s High Violet debuted at No. 3 on Billboard. Seeing one of my favorite bands become super popular is a little bittersweet. Of course I want to see these guys become very successful and be paid well for their excellent work.

But that sudden rise to fame is also cause for concern. Will the National be the same band? Will it sign on to a major label? We’ll have to see.

In the meantime, congrats to the National. It sold more than 50,000 copies of its new album in the first week.
