Nothing here appeals to me any more than it would in any other psych rock band. I feel as if this is just working with what others have already created, and not really adding anything new. there are some sweet riffs and hooks here and there, but I can find so much more with other bands in the same genre. Maybe some of of Montreal's other work will appeal to me more.

It has a great replay value, as well as amazing instrumentation and some great singing, but it doesn't stand out from the crowd for me.
I could hear a lot of influences from the Beatles' psych rock troughout all of the songs and I could also hear that this album influenced Tame Imapala, although I really don't know.

Wow, a colorful amazing masterpiece in the form of a loose concept album. Flawless lyrics and production the vocals are outstanding. This album paints one of the most colorful pictures full of exciting noises.

Far and away the best project in the eccentric of Montreal discography. It's one of the most flamboyant, glamorous, groovy, and funky listens I've ever had. The track listing flows so unbelievably well. The hooks are so sticky and the lyrics often humorous, even when dealing with serious subject matter. The Past Is a Grotesque Animal is such a sprawling, epic centerpiece.
