Product description

Product Description

This, Of Montreal's fourth album, was released in 2001 and quickly went out of print due to its extravagant and expensive packaging. Polyvinyl is now bringing it back in all its glory, with all 22 tracks and the entire booklet of original paintings. It's the band's most ambitious album with songs of wonderful madness featuring strange musical interludes, a detective story, gentle love songs, avant pop songs, and ending with an 18-minute piano opus.

This Athens collective has built its career on high concepts and low budgets, emerging with a string of indie-pop operas. However, Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse outstrips even the band's own ambitions. A year and a half in the making, Coquelicot features 22 pieces ranging from loopy spoken-word snippets to literally Beatles-esque baroque pop, and it concludes with an 18-minute piano epic ("The Hopeless Opus"). This is the sound of the Bonzo Dog Band strolling woozily through strawberry fields, spinning tall tales and greeting passersby all the way. That they succeed without embarrassing themselves or their listeners is a testament to their sheer talent. There's a vague, loose concept at work here, but don't worry too much about following it: the band members themselves admit that they weren't going for a straight narrative. You'll want to let Coquelicot unfold in its own roundabout way and follow its oddly affecting musical path. The deluxe packaging includes two inserts and plenty of curious psychedelic artwork. --Mike Appelstein --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
