Top Customer Reviews
It opens with "Everything Disappears When You Come Around," a charming acoustic ballad that is either really sweet or really disturbing, depending on how you feel about vanishing ears and headless birds. The vibe continues in songs like the electronic-tinged "I Can't Stop Your Memory," the rollicking "Don't Ask Me To Explain" and bizarre "Sleeping in the Beetle Bug."
The second half opens with a peculiar friendship/love ode that begins, "Tim, wish you were born a girl,/So I could've been your boyfriend." What follows is a mishmash of melancholy laments ("You looked in my eyes,/Then said, "I'm so sorry") and puppy-love songs, ending with the lines: "You've got a special gift./Do you see how you're changing the world/just by hanging around?" It doesn't get much more enchanting than that.
Love is something that seeps into almost every Of Montreal albums -- love, kissing, lovers, and relationships that either bloom or slowly decline. "Cherry Peel" is mostly on that subject, although it does dip into feel-good ditties here and there ("No matter how you died through winter,/In spring you're born again,/Your life might not be going good,/But spring helps you to pretend.")
The Elephant 6 bands are known for having a sort of sixties vibe. "Cherry Peel" has the sunniness from the best of the sixties pop, along with the sparkling multilayered melodies. But the musical tinkering is too sparse compared to their later work.Read more ›
It opens with a simple, but characteristically strange love song, "Everything Dissapears When You Come Around", and it never leaves it's core themes. And there's nothing wrong with that. It'd be a classic if it weren't for some of the later songs and the unfortunate fact that the cheap recording equipment mars the album's beauty at times. Still, I have to say you should pick it up.
