of Montreal seems to have an unending ability to captivate its audience. This EP is no exception. Patience is required, but repeated listenings reveal subtleties in both the lyrics and music. While often bewildered upon my first exposure to the band's new music, I slowly become fascinated with it as I begin to realize what I think Barnes is trying to convey musically and lyrically. As always, I look forward to the next installment from this unique band.
