Goat – Commune (2014)

Commune is the second album by hippy-dippy (sorry) experimental project Goat, who burst into the world with the phenomenal World Music record. Commune, in comparison, is a little bit more muted. Things develop at more of a crawl than they did on the rather spectacular debut. It took me a while to realise that Commune isn’t necessary boring or without the spark that Goat made upon their unleashing to the world, its just that the record moves at a different pace and with a different vibe. The percussion on this thing is an absolute pleasure to listen to (best with headphones to appreciate the panning, production etc.).

Stand out tracks for me include “Goatchild”, “Goatslaves” and the closing epic “Gathering Of Ancient Tribes”.
