Lilith's Heir Like most compilations it's a bit of a mixed bag - some are incredible (Source Decay, The Mess Inside, Fall, Balance), some are good/faithful to the original but don't really 'pop' for me, and some take the track in a direction I either didn't enjoy or didn't understand (Jeff Davis County Blues).

In any event it's nice to see some different explorations of a classic album, and I'm very happy to help support this project! Favorite track: Source Decay.

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
