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

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

    Dig deeper and you'll find that Goat has managed to create not just a world of their own, but an album that draws on influences from all over the world.

    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.

    At just 37 minutes, World Music is wisely edited--most of the songs hover around the 3-minute mark, so they speak their piece and move on before you get tempted to start peeling apart the layers to see what they're really made of.

    For all its psychedelic tendencies and marketing trappings, Goat's World Music feels as assured and unfussy as folk music.

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

    [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.

    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.
