of Montreal originally intended to make its critically acclaimed Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? a double album, but ultimately decided to pare down the tracklist to a more traditional 12 songs.
Icons, Abstract Thee features five tracks that were recorded at the same time as Hissing Fauna, but did not make it onto the album.
Musically and lyrically similar to the full-length, Icons, Abstract Thee is an essential companion piece to Hissing Fauna.
1Du Og Meg (2:21)
2Voltaic Crusher/Undrum To Muted Da (2:04)
3Derailments in a Place of Our Own (3:03)
4Miss Blonde, Your Papa is Failing (3:55)
5No Conclusion (9:42)
Will likely end up as one of 2007's finest musical accomplishments.
Every bit as fantastic [as Hissing Fauna]
Really great. Any one of these songs would have been at home on Hissing Fauna (4 stars)
