i always find it interesting no matter how many compliments someone gives to of montreal or their records they seem to feel the need to pan other albums like 'aldhils arboretum'. listen, i'm not gonna force anyone to like something but i'm just baffled no one's written a review preaching the truth, brother: every of montreal record is amazing and is another essential piece of their magically enchanting puzzle.
for anyone scared off by reviews that make it sound like certain records aren't worth your time just know that you might feel differently when you hear them yourself! many years ago (before they were back in print) i asked this guy at a record store what he thought of the first few my bloody valentine eps since they were near impossible to find and i was completely obsessed with them. he said they weren't worth tracking down but i'm glad i did..
anyway of montreal invite you to have more fun than you thought you were capable of having in 2004...go see them play in your town & in your mind and GET WILD!
