The Mountain Goats with Megafaun
"This is literary rock as it should be."—MSN Consumer Guide
Rife with mysterious imagery and religious overtones, the lyrics and music frontman John Darnielle crafts for The Mountain Goats deliver an emotional impact that's precise but ineffable—and unlike that of any other lyricist working today. "These are finely observed vignettes that manage to intersect life as we live it with life as we wish we could live it," as PopMatters noted of The Life of the World To Come, with Darnielle having "more in common with a short story writer than he does with the typical singer/songwriter."
