    Beautifully realised, immaculately recorded, and one of the year's loveliest vinyl artefacts to boot.

    Surrender your mind, body and soul to the Goat and one of the year's best albums so far.

    World Music sounds like a truly panglobal operation, a remarkably organic siphon of dozens of musical traditions.

    Goat has distilled what could have so very easily become an overblown meandering jam fest into a punchy, forceful and infectious masterpiece of cosmic rock & roll – the will is palpable, nigh a trace of fat on these bleached bones.

    Channeling whatever ceremonial endeavors (or imbibing whatever substances) are required, Goat has come up with an exuberant album filled to the brim with potent mysticism; World Music is fittingly possessed by a sprit of pure adventurousness.

    A brilliant and intoxicating record.

    [World Music is] a wonder through the traditional folk and more amplified sounds of the planet's history, yet infused with enough of Goat's own character to all glue together.

    Listening to Goat World Music is like a cathartic experience, you have a trip without taking any drugs, its a solid and entertaining album that will become a classic in some years and sadly, few people know it. Expand
