4.0 out of 5 stars Tell your friends about this band! Spread the word!, 31 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Gay Parade (Audio CD)
The Gay Parade neatly bridges the gap between the acoustic low production of 'A Petite Tragedy..' and the incredibly complex and ambitiousness of the proceeding album-'Coquelicot Asleep in the Posies'.
The words which most accurately describe this album are-
Charming, delighful, playful, comical, retro, sureal, melodic, jolly and very clever.
This album is not as mellow as the previous, there is generally much more craziness and songs which change beat, key and lyrical direction with no warning. This is a trait which 'Of Montreal' really define themselves by in the following album.
The other trait which make 'Of Monreal' such an interesting band is the fact that they have dozens of naratives running through their songs. This album is full of stories with very colourful characters which make the songs very memorable, plus, all the characters appear in the art work on the album sleeve.
'Of Montreal' are a truly great band, to many bands take themselves way too seriously these days, which is why albums like this are such a breath of fresh air.
