The Mountain Goats - We Shall All Be Healed


We Shall All Be Healed is a 2004 album from John Darnielle's main project, The Mountain Goats. The album focuses on semi-fictional accounts of Darnielle's years as a teenager, particularly his friends' and acquaintances' experiences as methamphetamine addicts. As written on The Mountain Goats' official website: "All of the songs on [We Shall All Be Healed] are based on people John used to know. Most of them are probably dead or in jail by now." Like "Tallahassee", but unlike the rest of Darnielle's repertoire up to its release, "We Shall All Be Healed" was recorded with a full band in a recording studio (as opposed a boom box with, at most, one or two backup vocalists or a bassist), and "Palmcorder Yajna" (the primary single), when played in concert, is often played with the backing of members of one or more of the opening acts on tour with The Mountain Goats.
