Of Montreal's warm and fuzzy cast of characters expanded beyond its means on 'The Gay Parade', one of indie pop's most colourful and unabashed outings, full of idiosyncratic narratives and squeaky instrumentation that would delight even the coldest cynic. Only Kevin Barnes could have made this record of classic backwards-marching baroque pop.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 4th January 2015

Kevin Barnes' budding career as one the 21st Century's most musically explorative and prolific songwriters arguably starts here, with the retro/pop classic The Gay Parade. Hailed by critics as a modern day Sgt. Pepper's, The Gay Parade flows blissfully from track to track with whimsical tales of nuns, boxers and invisible trees set to wholesome and infectious music. On the surface these songs appear to be the ramblings of a sugar infused coma with nursery rhyme melodies. However the lyrics are clever and delightfully verbose and the musical arrangements, chaotic and intriguing. Remastered and re-released on 180g vinyl this new pressing would be an excellent edition to any fan of 60s pop music.
