Sgt. Pepper's for Indie Kids

So, I didn't like Of Montreal before this release. There's such a deluge of music out there, especially in this generation of the pod, where 30 second snippets, and that little ergonomic wheel make it easy to prodigiously shred through gobs of music. That being said, these "snippets" are quite enthralling, and "The Events Leading Up to the Collapse..." is the best story song since the Velvet Underground's "The Gift". Here is a capricious collection of tracks that are rejuvenating and innovative, like a nuanced Sgt. Pepper's with spectacular musical animation.

The Pinnacle Of Montreal

The first trip through the poppie field may be the most intimidating experience of accessible pop of this millenium. With total regard for everything wonderful and happy about pop music, Kevin Barnes pushes his experimental take on the catchy songwriting even further, crafting gem after sparkling gem of glorious music. Quite possibly Of Montreal's masterpiece, Coquelicot will stretch your imagination and remind you to the deeper meaning of music with each of Barnes' miraculous exercises of creativity.

A Must-Have

Amazing album... essential to your Of Montreal/general music collection. A wonderfel exibition of Kevin Barnes' songwriting abilites. These most orginal lyrics you will probably ever hear in your life. Plus, some great melodies. <3
