We gave it a B

John Darnielle has built a mini-industry around the lyrically complex yet sonically simple acoustic compositions released under the name the Mountain Goats. In the past few years the singer-songwriter has deigned to allow other instruments to accompany his guitar, and it’s been to his advantage. On his latest album Get Lonely — a languid, contemplative work with each song a heartbreaking story unto itself — he incorporates offbeat percussion and foreboding cellos to create a nostalgic lament to lost love.
