The new version
Well, it's well-known the original version of the song is a masterpiece, and the new version is well worth it too. I was afraid it was going to be something akin to a remix, but it's actually just a harsher, more confrontational version of the original. It's a great reimagining but mainly for fans of the original song
The 11:53 version is worth the purchase of the cd if you like long songs.
The lyrics to The Past is a Grotesque Animal (with The Lost Trees) paint a picture too vague to be dramatic, and because that's, well, now apparent, the song is basically just sound. I mean, I guess you could say it's catchy and I'm sure Of Montreal had hmm...positive? intentions but, hey, maybe I just really couldn't relate to it. Guess I'll just wait 'til September for their next album. Mhm, alright, so thanks :)
