The Mountain Goats' [Emusic] Dozen

Check out John Darnielle's Emusic dozen.

In his intro, he says:

Sometime over the last couple of years I've gone from thinking that nothing could ever really be too fast or too loud to craving an all-purpose available-anywhere immersion tank. I seek out trance states, dark rooms and a good pair of headphones...Albums have lost favor as the consumer’s freedom to pick and choose has increased, and this is generally a good development. But for me, there can be no substitute for an album that keeps its focus on the flow: escapism, long a dirty word for thinking people, is due for some serious reevaluation.
