Description:

Following the recent vinyl reissues of GOAT's first two albums 'World Music' and 'Commune', Rocket have now repressed these two mighty albums on CD once again. Both come in new 'mini gatefold LP' style packaging, and Commune follows the recent LP press with a ltd run in 'Silver packaging' with new art. GOAT's "Commune" is the eagerly awaited follow up to their astonishing debut album "World Music". "Commune" continues on with the acidic grooves, hypnotic incantations, and serpentine guitar lines of "World Music" but also introduces a darker, more angry edge to the band, not seen before on previous releases. Starting with the layered percussive groove, Eastern guitar flourishes, and convoking vocals of "Talk To God", it re-establishes the trance-inducing rhythms and exotic blaze of guitar that characterized their debut so well. That spellbound pulse delves into darker and more propulsive territories on "Words" and "Goatslaves", while "Goatchild" veers towards the transcendental pop of 0s Bay Area rock. The vintage psychedelic vibe permeates through songs like "The Light Within" and "To Travel The Path Unknown"-tracks that suggest that these rural Swedes operate on the same wavelength as the Turkish psych-folkies recently rediscovered by reissue labels like Finders Keepers. "Commune" reaches its apex when GOAT's hymnal invocations meet a heavy doze of proto-metal fuzz on "Hide From The Sun" and "Gathering of Ancient Tribes".
