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.

Reviews

Will likely end up as one of 2007's finest musical accomplishments.

Pitchfork

Every bit as fantastic [as Hissing Fauna]

Skyscraper

Really great.  Any one of these songs would have been at home on Hissing Fauna (4 stars)
