The Mountain Goats are very prolific and their output is accordingly decidedly variable.
If you are coming new to the Mountain Goats then this is an ideal place to start, some beautiful lyrics, attractive tunes, and fairly conventional/professional production. Three of of the tracks, Sometimes I still feel the bruise, Alibi and Ox Baker Triumphant are amongst my all time favourite songs, but the whole EP is decided strong. This is music you can both admire and enjoy.
I will rise from the swamp Where they dumped my private plane I'll be clutching the life preserver In my teeth And I will find the highway And I will flag down a truck
