  1. Mountain Goats have just added a further chapter in an ongoing saga of (micro) relationships examined against a backdrop of (macro) global concern, We Shall All Be Healed being the most explicit yet.
  2. This is a revelatory album for the Mountain Goats and the listeners; both Darnielle and the audience find new strength in his open vulnerability.

    I think what Olympia B meant to say was 'this CD is the bomb.' jahn darnielle is amazing. listening to his songs is like listening to someone telling a beautiful story. Full Review »

    Ok, it's not quite as brilliant as "All Hail West Texas" or "Tallahassee," but it wasn't fair of us to expect THREE flawless albums in a row. Still, this is a GREAT set of songs in Darnielle's trademark style... what it lacks in firepower, it makes up for in texture and detail. 9 out of 10. Full Review »

    It's going to be hard to top this one. For the next one he's better off going sideways.
