AllMusic Review by

L M N O P calls for either a semi-bizarre sense of humor or the liberal use of drugs, in the best way possible. The record (which isn't described justly with terms like "novelty" or "humor") presents the musical adventures of DJ Cardboard, Princess Pandora Stardust, the Mean Witch Christ Cornpop, and several other characters, all of whom make up the best puppet band since Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem. The appeal of this lies partly in the characters' amusing escapades (the album opens with DJ Cardboard offering "Free Guitar Lessons for Animals," then listening to the music of each animal's newly formed band), but also in the always-appropriate sound manipulations used to create both voices and music. Almost anyone who has ever enjoyed a recording of this sort will find L M N O P interesting; at the very least, stoners and semi-strange people all over America may find it near brilliant.
