Product Description

The sixth full-length and first for Polyvinyl from this Athens, GA band is a departure from previous releases. There's a 70's Afro beat and an 80's new wave influence, and the songs are full of danceable electro hooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best band ever. really! May 27 2004
By A Customer

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will you come and fetch me girl from the brink? May 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
The best way I can describe Of Montreal is to say that they are like clowns. On the surface they appear lighthearted, fun, even silly... but underlying all of that there is something about them that is elusively frightening! I mean, don't we all know we should LIKE clowns, but really in our hearts they scare the crap out of us? That's how I think of them... outwardly their music is fresh, breezy, and poppy...but at the same time the structures are schizophrenic and lyrically they are disturbing at times. Case in point: track 8 on this new release is "Chrissie Kiss the Corpse": an upbeat guitarish romp that retells the tale of one Chrissie's necrophilian tendencies ("Chrissy's such a pretty lass / as benign as broken glass / No one in her family knows / the vile hobby that she chose"). Despite my lingering fear, I find this to be one of the groups strongest outings to date. A must have for fans, but also great for newly initiated as well. If you haven't heard them before, they owe a lot to their second cousins in E6 like Olivia Tremor Control (which of course owe in turn a lot to other artists of the past).
One of the accesable tracks is probably the opener "Disconnect the Dots", showcasing electro beats, sweet drawn out taffy guitar, and keyboards that sound like "Getting Away With It" era Electronic were jamming on the Love Boat (complete with perfect throwbackweee-ooo-OOO-ooo-ooo Beach Boys harmony samples). Its bookend, the second to last track "Spike the Senses" is probably the second closest thing to a single, with its AM gold 70's sound that at about a minute in has some keyboards that sound like they were ripped right out of an alternate Charlie's Angels theme song.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'm not upset - just confused" April 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
We may have the solution to global warming, deadly disease and most evil leaders in Satanic Panic in the Attic's artwork alone. I spent well into 3 hours in a dark closet with a single emergency candle exploring the wealth of creatures in it's illustrations, and by the time the wax had reached my feet, I swear I nearly had the answers. Then I decided to pursue the vinyl edition direct to get a closer peek (the artwork is approx. 250% larger on an album, you see) - still, the answer seemed to be in the music itself.
'Satanic Panic in the Attic' is / was one of Kevin Barnes short poems from the of Montreal website - and it is now a full-on 14-track journey of audible grandeur. From the synthed up openings of 'dis-connect the dots' to the enhanced reverb of 'spike the senses', this is certainly not an album to write oneself off to - but likely find yourself suppressed in sheer jubilation. Truth be told, the only of Montreal release I own [and positively cherish] to this day is Cherry Peel, the beginner set from way back in 1997 [Bar None] - so you're getting something of an outsider's view on the whole journey that is OM. In short - I find Satanic Panic in the Attic a wonderous affair, much like a magical night on any near-weightless planet with the creatures from Sid & Marty Krofft's H.R. Pufnstuf (that leaves out the impossible chance of the mentioned "gay time" on a neutron star).
Who could have seen the time-changes that take place on 'lysergic bliss' coming? That song in itself develops & reforms at least 4 times before ending a glorious chorus of joy. Am I right in reading that "all instruments played by kevin (barnes)", except for 2 songs?

5.0 out of 5 stars Promise Fulfilled April 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's been a rough couple of years for us Of Montreal fans. Their last two release, "Coquelicot Amongst The Poppies (A Variety of Whimsical Verse)" and "Aldhils Arboretum," while repleat with the pop-perfect weirdness that is songwriter Kevin Barnes's bread-and-butterflies, were beginning to feel - well, let's say a tad over-ripe. Packed with filler material (from sub-par songlets to over-long "literary" passages), these albums felt like dull attempts to recapture the love, excitement, and sheer genius of such early Barnes masterpieces as "The Gay Parade" and "The Bedside Drama (A Petite Tragedy)."
Flash forward to Fall 2003. Barnes announces on Of Montreal's Web site ([...]) that their new record, "Satanic Panic in the Attic," would be "a little electronic" - panic, right? Right. But then the pieces fell into place: "Sad Love" (retitled on this record "Eros' Entropic Tundra") was released as part of a Valentine's day comp, the opening track "Disconnect the Dots" was put up on the band site, and "Rapture Rapes the Muses" was leaked by their Australian label. And what, may you ask, did THIS pop fan do?
Jump for joy.
Kevin Barnes has hit a new level of brilliance on this album, fulfilling the promise of the band's other records. Unlike "Aldhils Arboretum," Barnes isn't afraid to reveal his freakish side, allowing the inner child to play catch with songs like "Lysergic Bliss" and "Chrissie Kiss The Corpse," maybe the greatest song about necrophelia NOT from a Norwegian black metal band (but don't quote me on that). "City Bird" is hands-down his most beautiful composition, the melody gently pressing down on soap bubble-brittle guitar work.
