John darnielle has been called ‘rock’s best storyteller’, and his vocal delivery akin to receiving words of wisdom from a friend with a hand on your shoulder.

they are a vehicle for the most widely empathic body of songs you’re ever likely to hear. this record projects the universality of human angst from a most culturally niche of settings. Musically accessible - luxurious-even - the mountain goats nevertheless continue to weave idiosyncratic narratives with a truly singular songwriting voice. Fans of neutral milk hotel, okkervil river, or magnetic fields not yet obsessed, may find their ‘in’ with this minor masterpiece. It’s music that glows with warmth and radiance — with good feelings for the people in the songs, not the dark images that those people are doing this best to project.” album of the week - stereogum
