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