Of all of the Elephant 6 related bands, this is the best, with this album besting all of them. I've owned this record for a couple years, and after the first three listens I got a little fed up with it. The music is jarring, and the chord progressions are discordant. But then it gets better and better with each listen, just like the best records you've ever owned. The tunes start to grow on you, and soon enough, rather than being jarring and dischordant, Coquelicot becomes stimulating like a head rush - the music begins to fit together and the album accordians itself into this condensed package of pop and harmony.
Think early Pink Floyd - Bike song, or The Beachboys - Bicycle Rider. Or maybe even mix the two together. If that's not helpful, just think Beachboys Pet Sounds, but on some wild hallucinogenic drug.
You might buy Of Montreal's Gay Parade before you get this, though I did not. If you have the option of listening to any song by Of Montreal first, find "My Favorite Boxer" - its on Gay Parade.

The best metal record in a decade. This album makes me want to drink soy milk and get in shape like Rocky. Fans of dokken, dio, napam death,cradle of filth,Pantera,Monster Magnet,Sepultura, Judas Priest,Dream Theater, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Megadeth,Yngwie Malmsteen, Kyuss, and Carcass take note; you are no longer relevant.

This is the single most amazing piece of physical matter in the known universe. Listening to the wonderfully pleasurable music on this CD makes me so very giddy. Not only are the lyrics so delightfully superb, but the quality of the music is just so grand. If you are a fan of happiness, I would suggest that you buy several copies of this CD. And oh, they couldn't just stop at an incredible CD, but they have to add a booklet of drawings to go along with each song and a fold out poster containing all the lyrics, making it franticly simple to memorize every single word. i just sit around in ecstasy and listen to the absurdly awesome piano opus that flies for 18 minutes at the end of the glorious masterpiece that is this CD. The quality of all the music makes me pass out and have lovely dreams of beautiful things. And I love the wide range of musical instruments: everything from guitars, pianos, cellos, violins, clarinets, and xylophones, to toy pianos and voices through swinging hoses. I can't express how much this CD has made the world a more pleasant place to have to exist in. I'll just suggest that you purchase it, and give it a test drive. Regret is thoroughly unlikely.

On its own merits, "Coquelicot" is an almost-clever, fancy little record which hearkens to the story-song records of an early-seventies childhood. Whimsy is the name of the game here--a distinctly over-the-top British, Edwardian-cum-Hippie whimsy, and what you think about this record depends on how you feel about that.
Frankly, this album takes the perjorative term "precious" to a new level I never thought possible. I would give this record zero stars just because I gradually became so irritated with each passing note I began wincing. It's so flighty and fruity and batty and barmy...argh, but what did I expect?
I have to give the group credit for the high-concept pop. A lot of creativity went into producing this. I have to recognize that there may be an audience for this. But the story is uninvolving, and musically, there is nothing too catchy here--the music is too mincing and the lyrics too idiotic to stick. The very last piece is exceptional, however: a piano composition which hints at ragtime, English Music Hall, maybe even a little Debussy? Too late, though! This is not the record with which to start your Of Montreal experience.

What is the world coming to, when a few upstarts can box some non-sensical melodies in direct juxtaposition with one-act plays that lead nowhere? Where-ever it is, that's where I want to be. Never before has one album so revolutionized for me the idea of what music really is. Before I listened to Coquelicot, I assumed that for a song to be considered music, it had to have several integral parts. After listening to this album, I have now decided that deliberately leaving one of these parts out (yes, even the music) can lead you on the road to a greater, more fantastic kind of music, one in which all you need is an imagination, a little bit of patience, and a somewhat child-like view that world will spin on, even if not everything happens the way you planned.
