5.0 out of 5 stars Music that resonates, 3 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Coroner's Gambit (Audio CD)
I find it hard to admit, but listening to some of the music on
this album gives me such an emotional kick that i am forced to
tears on numerous occasions. But it isn't really because of
sadness - I think it is because this music resonates with me in
a way that very few pieces of music I have heard ever have.
This is music stripped of any pretension, banality, or bombast.
It continues in the mountain goat's tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most interesting album I've bought in a long while..., 15 Oct. 2001
By 
Mark (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Coroner's Gambit (Audio CD)
Just one guy with an acoustic guitar and a great imagination. The vocals make the album, complemented by the sometimes frenzied strumming. Ironic and highly metaphorical lyrics, often darkly amusing. Reputedly recorded on cassette using a cheap boom box, not quite like anything else I've heard, but possibly better. Original, interesting and sometimes moving - just buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One man and his guitar, 15 Sept. 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Coroner's Gambit (Audio CD)
As I work my way backwards through the mountain goats back-catalougue from the most recent 'We shall be healed', I continue to be even more impressed by the quality and character of this man's work. The lyrical content is where the goat's strengh lies and this album boasts superb examples. This is an album that I can't recommend enough to anyone who is even a vague fan of acoustic music. I've been addicted ot it for weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars No need to continue reading. Stop wasting time. BUY BUY BUY!, 27 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Coroner's Gambit (Audio CD)
This album in the continuing saga of The Mountain Goats is certainly their best offering yet. Wriitten in the aftermath of a close friend the album contains some of the most heart-wrenching songs you are ever likely to hear. Elijah, Shadow Song and There Will Be No Divorce are prime examples - nothing short of genius. Buy this album and break your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing acousitic tones, 24 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Coroner's Gambit (Audio CD)
This album by a little known band is a real gem. If like me you love the sound of an acoustic guitar being played really well you will love this.
Bringing in old themes and mixing them with new is just a brilliant combination "Blue Jays and Cardinals" & "Insurance Fraud #2" being some of the best examples of this.
I just cant wait to listen to some of their earlier work.
WELL WORTH A LOOK!!

4.0 out of 5 stars No Verdict, 18 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Coroner's Gambit (Audio CD)
This was on my son-in-laws Amazon wish list in 2008, so I got for his birthday in January 2009 (or was it Christmas 2008?).

I have heard it once (I think) and on that basis I could not come to a verdict. It is a pity that Amazon does not provide either a review without rating or a remove from my 'to be reviewed' list.
