    Eu amo tanto essa música, e nunca consegui encontrar por ai alguma que possuísse o mínimo de semelhança... nem mesmo entre os outros albuns do Of Montreal. Alguém sabe outras músicas que seguem essa linha de BPM? Psicodelia em alta, vocais enfatizados e tudo mais? Não é possivel que o tipo de som que mais de identifico no mundo só existe uma unica musica dele hahah

    Story of the Eye is obscene and fantastic. George Bataille puts Freud to shame in the myriad ways he explores the connections between sex and death in man's mind.

    Intensity itself, the soundtrack to many a psychotic walk to the bus stop. Hearing it live earlier in the year was a nigh spiritual experience.
