This review is from: Bitter Melon Farm (MP3 Download)
The Mountain Goats are the kings of literate lo fi. Newcomers should check out Sunset Tree [VINYL]

Along with Protein Source of the Future...Now and Ghana this is one of the three rarities albums by the Mountain Goats.

You do get a lot of songs for your money, but often they are mere musical sketches, not feeling fully fleshed out. There are two Alpha Couple songs, with "Alpha Desperation March" being particularly amusing, and four more Going to ... songs. I also enjoyed "No I Can't" though I have no idea what it is about.

The version of the Ace of Bass classic "The Sign" is actually pretty poor and it is worth tracking him down singing it on Youtube, for the true glory of his rendition.

If you already have the more popular albums then you will find something to enjoy here, it is not likely to be something you listen to all that often, but it can be nice to hear the songs pop up on shuffle.
