of Montreal – The Past Is a Grotesque Animal

I’ve explored you with the detachment of an analyst
But most nights we’ve raided the same kingdoms
And none of our secrets are physical
None of our secrets are physical

Now, there are some bands that are not that great. Few albums are nice, most of them not memorable, but there is one a lot better than the rest. It has a couple of fine tracks and hidden among them there is a perfect one. The past… is my longtime favorite. First of all it has this feeling, a story told by a lost soul, someone hurt and someone with an impressive talent for metaphores. Here’s just the last  part. Yet I could put here the complete lyrics without hesitation. Anyway it’s quite open for interpretation. There is no quetstion about the beauty of the phrases and what’s more each word is backed by genuine emotions. The music builds the climax wonderfully. Once you start to listen, it takes a lot of determination to stop repeating and repeating. ‘It’s like we weren’t made for this world, though I wouldn’t really want to meet someone who was.’
