  • Summary: 'National Anthem' is the second album for the Canadian band led by Andrew Whiteman, also a guitarist in Broken Social Scene.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. Though the songs here are so much crisper and more exciting, they don't sacrifice the easygoing looseness of Apostle's Folkloric Feel debut.
  2. An album that is warm and inviting without being overpowering and rich and varied enough to warrant repeated listening.
  3. 84
    These touches of color set this album above its pasty-skinned, post-rock cronies and prove National Anthem of Nowhere an apt title. [#24, p.92]
  4. Compared with Folkloric Feel there’s more pop and accessibility here.
  5. A decent—but not quite perfect—pop album. [#17, p.90]
  6. Unfortunately, the times the band steps into more lighthearted -- at least musically -- territory are not nearly as successful.
  7. Apostle of Hustle loses focus halfway through.
