Of Montreal Coquelicot Asleep In The Peoples Poppies: A Variety Of Whimsical Verse on 180g Vinyl 2LP + Digital Download Code

Of Montreal's fourth album, was released in 2001 and quickly went out of print due to its extravagant and expensive packaging. Polyvinyl is now bringing it back in all its glory, with all 22 tracks and the entire booklet of original paintings. It's the band's most ambitious album with songs of wonderful madness featuring strange musical interludes, a detective story, gentle love songs, avant pop songs, and ending with an 18-minute piano opus.

The songs on Coquelicot, though crammed full of saccharine pop hooks, display a level of complex structuring and arrangement that could put most pop records to shame. - Pitchfork
