If Oscar Wilde and Edward Lear collaborated on some amusing lyrics and stories, put them in time capsule to then be discovered by the Monkees in the late sixties who then ask Brian Wilson for a hand in putting them to some wacky music, then the result would probably sound a little like 'Of Montreal'.
This particular album is no way near as impressive as 'The Gay Parade' or 'Coquelicot Asleep in the Posies' and this is not surprising seeing as it is their first effort. Yet the charming qualities which can be found in the lastest albums can still be heard here. 'Everything disapear when you come around' display the quirky lyrics and arrangements which define 'Of Montreal', so do songs like 'Baby' and 'Tim I which you were a girl'.
'Cherry Peel' is a very roughly produced album, but this seems to add to the feel of it in some understated way .The instrumentation is much looser then in later albums (thats not to say it sounds amature) and this also gives us the feeling a home recorded album (which it is) and this makes for a much more intimate sound.
The melodies are as stunning as ever, the words are shamelessly inventive and although this is a low production album, an impressive ammount of inovation is shown.
So...yeah....buy it!

Format: Audio CD
Of Montreal sprang into existance with their debut "Cherry Peel," but they might as well have called it "All You Need Is Love." It has cheery pop melodies and offbeat lyrics, but the most noticeable thing is the focus on love -- especially hearts-and-flowers, pounding-heart love.
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.
