The Mountain Goats

So I'm not even going to pretend I have all this guy's ever put out. He's released 16 LPs over his career and probably a billion eps and 7"s and appeared on two billion compilation albums. I will however upload what I recommend you guys check out. His first ten albums were mostly him playing acoustic guitar into a four-track boombox, so as good as the songs are, they sound like shit. Since he's signed to a major label he got himself a full band and worked on filling out his sound. Shit is excellent. I have listed his six full-band albums in the order that I recommend them. First is my favorite and on down the line. They're all super-fantastic though.
