It just fuckin rips your heart out, man. There's something about the naked vulnerability of some of these songs, the interlocked, weaving of lines, the bleakness (yet upliftingness!) which just hurts.
And hurting is all I want to do (at least right now.) Five stars. Liam McCann
Bought my 1st Mt Goats cassette in 1993?94? from Shrimper -- direct. Best song? "Going To Chino." Been deeply in love w/ Mr. Darnielle since. And this new one's going on my Best of 2020 List. You done the pagans proud, kind sir. Otis Nugatory
