but I like it just as much as any Of Montreal album. I don't judge these as Of Montreal songs. To me, these all come from a time before then. The lyrical style is different. Listen to those first few tracks on here; it sounds as if Kevin's trying to get as much out of his mouth as he can.

The album's amateur song is to be enjoyed. I'm not sure when in the world the musicians where at the time of these recordings, but it reminds me of stuff (quality-wise) I use to make with my friends in a basement (with the four-track). The are experimental, be it in the lyrics, the music, or both.

I really enjoy the songs especially those with the lines "The telephone only lets me borrow the comfort of your voice", "Creampuff wedding of two" and "I'm not getting married without a bottle in both hands." Because of all the Dustin Hoffman titles (obviously chosen after the fact) these serve as de facto titles.

You might be initially turned off in thinking this is another Of Montreal album, but give it a chance because this shows just how much Of Montreal has grown in the past ten years. If they went from this to where they're at today, then who knows what further bounds they'll travel before its all over?

Every one is amazing, mind you, but this one is incredible because he delves incredibly deep into territory only slightly perused on "The Bedside Drama": sadness, all-encompassing and honest. The untitled tracks here represent perhaps the last of a truly sad bunch of songs. I, for one, love sad songs. I revel in them. Kevin Barnes is happy now, which is by no means a good thing. But, in my math textbook, Kevin Barnes + crestfallen = teary-eyed bliss. Listen to tracks 3 and 5 and pretend like you're not the saddest you've ever been in your life.

As a big time Of Montreal fan, I got this mostly for completeness sake, not expecting it would be as great as it is. This is Kevin Barnes in straight ahead pop song mode, the songs are big balls of hooks, the lyrics surrealistic and heartbreaking. It turns out that Of Montreal was the REAL king of lo fi in the mid 1990s!

I bought this cd because every other "early 4 track recording" that an elephant 6 band has done is absolutely amazing. So I bought this expecting a mind blowing album. It took me a few days to get into the album, but afterwards it just flows. Since the purchase of this album, I listen to it all the way through at least four times a week. It goes great with anything. Video games, taking a shower, spending time with your lover, reading a book, or just singing along alone in your bedroom.

This is one of my favorite albums I've ever purchased and every penny was worth it. If you're new to Of Montreal, this is a great first buy.

I'd make a list of all my favorite songs, but it would be a waste of time. Just refer to the entire tracklist above. That should do the trick.

Get this album. I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

You can't find this cd hardly anywhere, so if you can get it get it now. Supplies will run out shortly. You can't find this cd in your regular record / music store and is one of the best cd's I have bought all year. I usually spend around 1,000.00 to 2,000.00 a year on music and frankly this is one of the best cd's I have purchsed in 2006.

Take my word for it, this will be the best cd - of, Of Montreal that you will buy.
