After watching most of their catalog fall out of print over the years, Athens' of Montreal saw a resurgent interest in their back catalog following the overwhelming success of Satanic Panic In The Attic and The Sunlandic Twins.
Originally released in 1998, of Montreal's second full-length features uncredited appearances by members of Neutral Milk Hotel and The Late B.P. Helium. The album was the first where of Montreal built characters around concepts. Although not as developed as later of Montreal concept albums, The Bedside Drama: a Petite Tragedy is infused with Vaudevillian elements that foreshadowed of Montreal's break-out albums The Gay Parade and Coquelicot Asleep In The Poppies : A Variety of Whimsical Verse.
According to All Music Guide, the album "marked a crucial stage in the evolution from the lo-fi garage pop of Cherry Peel to the ambitious rock carnival of The Gay Parade and cemented of Montreal's status as one of the most creatively relevant groups of the late '90s."
