3.0 out of 5 stars A little dull, 7 July 2007
This review is from: Get Lonely (Audio CD)
The Mountain Goats are a brilliant band but this is not their best work. Never before has one of their albums sounded so monotonous. Darnielle's vocals seem at a constant high whisper, unlike his usual tones which vary greatly from boyish banter to a sweet croon.
"Get Lonely" is not without merit but is poor compared to earlier releases. The best tracks are the lively "If You See Light", the dark "Maybe Sprout Wings" and the title track. There are other moments of greatness but overall this is just not up to their usual standards. Please ignore the reviewer (why is there always one?) who can't spell and has given five stars and proclaimed it as their greatest work despite only owning this album.

Fans, you can buy anyway and enjoy what there is to enjoy here, but newcomers would do better to sample The Sunset Tree or All Hail West Texas instead.
