gonna pick up the CD on Friday but I'm not super convinced by the three tracks I've heard. still enjoyable but maybe lacking a bit of zest, pizzazz and possibly oomph.

I love Suite IV so much but Suite V just doesn't really grab me like I hoped it would. I'm hoping it grows on me.

I fight for equality of all three ladies on this site.



I prefer Suite V to IV, but I guess most people will disagree.



@Voivod:

It's a legitimately fun, and at times poignant listen. You should check it out.

I'm going to hope that it'll be just like Suite III was for me, that one grew massively after a while even though I didn't dig it the first few times.

Suite 3 is my least favorite. The track with of montreal isn't good at all. Bebop... slays, though.

Yeah, grew massively but still don't dig it as much as II. Mushrooms and Roses is my favorite song right now, kinda hard to believe it's not on Suite III because it'd fit right in.

I'm loving this album so far.



Also, Make The Bus was the worst thing on The ArchAndroid.

I can understand that opinion, but I loved how bonkers the track was (which is also why I love the newest Of Montreal album)

If you like your pop with more Jazz ya'll need to check out Esperanza Spalding.
I've only heard a few tracks from this so far but I'm loving it.
