Luke Berrie Gorgeous record about a moment in time that came and left, but still had an impact on the world today. The Mountain Goats best album in years. Favorite track: Abandoned Flesh.

Rowan King goths takes a unique place in the mountain goats discog. like beat the champ there's a kinda wacky theme tying everything together, unlike literally anything the mountain goats have made before there is nary a single guitar to be found on this album. i kinda had my doubts about it at first, but it works in a way that no one other than john darnielle could pull off. theres some interesting, over the top instrumentation, and ofc, genius songwriting everywhere on goths. v good Favorite track: Stench of the Unburied.

about

The Mountain Goats Durham, North Carolina

John Darnielle has written almost 600 songs now, and some of them are very sad, dealing with hard drugs and tragic ends, hurting yourself and others, sicknesses of both body and brain, off-brand alcohols. They are told in beautiful, unnerving, specific detail because he is a very good writer, and also some of them are just true stories about his own life.
—John Hodgman, 2012
