bad

12 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbConrad Tao EMERITUS | January 8th 12

Like a less self-serious and more palatable Age of Adz. Awesome, in every sense of the word.

10 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicAnthracks | January 25th 12

This is the album David Bowie would create if he was a rising artist in 2012.

5 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbDaniel Smith | January 8th 12

Kevin Barnes ingests A.D.Z. i.e. the Psychosis Particle

Or maybe it's just methamphetamine


5 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbLucas Schlotfeldt | January 14th 12

Few albums makes me smile the first time i listen to them. Even fewer makes me smile EVERY time

2 Bumps | Bump

2.5 averageAggravatedYeti | February 20th 12

So apparently the drugs have stopped working -- I am at a loss.

0.0 Lewis P. STAFF | February 2nd 12

Simpler songs with more pots and pans to throw about. Probably the best Of Montreal album, but for the wrong reasons. What's the deal? Can't they "figure it out"? Hissing fauna, are you really the destroyer, or is it Barnes' self-awareness? Is this good pop music, or pop music made "good"? Is there a difference? Isn't there a difference?

4.5 superbINFINITY ACTRESS | January 11th 12

Barnes pulls his head out of his ass and brings us the best OM album since Fauna. Shit's fuckin tight

5.0 classicHe Instagram his watch like #MadRichAlert | May 7th 13

i hate you all

Bump

0.0 AGuyIsWatchingYou | July 6th 12

Kevin Barnes seems sad again, or mad, or something. Either way it's great for us, since it keeps him writing great material.

Bump

4.5 superbJacob R. STAFF | February 2nd 12

Paralytic Stalks has its hooks and lures, flaws and duds. However, when it shines, oh Lordy does it shine. This is the most intriguing album I've heard in quite some time, and it has a way of demanding your attention in unexpected multitudes. Despite the downright stupidity of moments during the second half, there are tracks here that will stick with you, and trust me; we'll all be eagerly awaiting what Of Montreal has in store for us next.
