I bought this album on a whim not long after it came out based on the band name alone. Hadn't heard of The Jesus Lizard and had no idea what to expect. To say I was blown away is an understatement. GOAT, produced by Steve Albini (one of my favorite guys in a producer / engineer capacity), had everything I loved. Raw, in your face, heavy, angry, and on and on. For probably one of the most underrated bands ever, they created what is one of the best albums ever in my book.
