Of Montreal's trademark hyperactivity, and melodic yet off-kilter sensibility is possibly at its peak on Coquelicot. Seemingly drawing as much from the English music hall tradition as from American pop acts like the Beach Boys, there's nothing else out there quite like the frenetic, utterly wacked-out pop these guys come up with. When the record's at its best, the group incorporates more diverse elements into their music than ever before. Good Morning Mr. Edminton," Coquelicot's opener, is a typical Of Montreal song in prime form. They're not playing around about the "variety of whimsical verse" thing. And sadly, this means the inclusion of the intolerable skit "The Events Leading Up to the Collapse of Detective Dulllight," in which Kevin Barnes seeks to shatter your preconceived notions of reality by introducing a character whose name contains three consecutive "l's.

This trend continues on Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies. While there are come similarities to their previous efforts Bedside Drama and The Gay Parade, Coquelicot is more ambitious in its concept, arrangements, lyrics, and even artwork. As with other Of Montreal albums, this one works as a concept, but the songs also stand on their own, which is even more impressive. The band also incorporates a wide variety of instruments such as cello and violin to accordion and theremin. Coquelicot builds perfectly upon The Gay Parade and shows the progression of a great band.

Following the release of The Gay Parade, the band signed with Kindercore Records, and in 2001, the concept album Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse was released. Kindercore Records would fold shortly after the release of Aldhils Arboretum, and Andy and Derek left the band.
