Format: Audio CD
'Transcendental Youth' is The Mountain Goats' fourteenth album in
eighteen years since their 1994 debut 'Zopilote Machine' and on the
evidence available here they're in no danger of running out of steam
anytime soon. Front man John Darnielle sure enough knows how to craft
a good tune and there are a round dozen new ones in this collection.

From the staccato rattle and crash of splendid opening number 'Amy
aka Spent Gladiator 2'; through the clipped observational lyrics and
melancholy melody of 'Lakeside View Apartments Suite'; 'Cry For Judas'
with its rich brass decorations and deliciously shuffling rhythm; to
the bristling urgency of 'Night Light' and the tender but uplifting
final track 'Transcendental Youth', Mr Darnielle steers his ship
through richly imaginatively musical territory with a steady hand and
his distinctive and beguiling nasal tremolo as intact as it ever was.

With so many good songs on offer its terribly hard to pick a winner but
(for now) my money's on the upbeat 'The Diaz Brothers', as tight and
energetic an invention as any of the best in this fine band's repertoire.

The Mountain Goats are still at the top of their game. Long may they prosper!

Highly Recommended.

I always wonder if John Darnielle will one day run out of steam after so many albums of good songs. I shouldn't have worried. This is one of his best ever. The songs are powerful as always and the brass arrangements add a real musical depth.It grabs you from the first and just goes on getting better, along with Dylan's Tempest and the new Andrew Bird CDs this is an album of the year for me.

Yet again. Mountain Goats are awesome. I have always loved getting their albums. This is no different. Brilliant. Fun. Interesting. Witty.

album to album the music grows and every time the improvments are great. bring on the brass, bring on the pain, bring on the hope, love, dreams and don't forget the brass...
