The Mountain Goats have made a hella load of records over the years and some of them i really liked, especially early efforts that i found to be raw and telling in their approach. It would seem that time has smoothed the edges of The Mountain goats current output with new LP 'The life of the world to come' sounding clean, composed and well produced. John Darnielle has an intense vocal style that has divided opinion in the office, i like it, though it is very aggressive and strange and not to everyone's taste. Putting that aside i think this new record sounds pretty good. The roomy production sound provided by the good folks at Electrical Audio really suits the more intense compositions but some of the smoother recordings sound a little flat and lifeless to me. So for those of you who don't know, The Mountain Goats play country and americana tunes in the vein of The Silver Jews, Bill Callaghan's basically an evolved version of American college rock. It certainly has it's moments though it pales in comparison to previous efforts.
