The Jesus Lizard - Goat

One of my all time favorite albums.
From Trouserpress:
"On Goat, the quartet sinks elbow-deep into the bowels of the American nightmare, turning up all sorts of unpleasant parasites that pass unnoticed among us. Yow's disjointed couplets — at times he sounds like a preacher speaking in tongues — bounce off targets both subtle ("Rodeo in Joliet") and freakish (the antagonistic "Then Comes Dudley"). Duane Denison no longer wields his guitar like a lawnmower — instead of flying sonic mulch, he comes forth with identifiably blues-based riffing that's twisted enough to underscore the music's edge but linear enough to maintain the perception that these really are slices of everyday life."
