fucking greatest animal collective album. this is not an opinion either! absolutely smashed it they have. boneface
it really isn't
it really is
it REALLY isn't
I didn't used to but it's grown on me. Probably second favourite after Feels.
Probably not the indieest opinion to have, but I almost always love it when bands go for a more poppy sound, even tough I guess most people would disagree.
i guess it is an opinion afterall, but yeah i reckon it is the most exciting music ive heard for ages, ok the mastering may be a bit much for some tastes, it sounds better through my hifi than my monitors, but yeah generally 10 out of 10,
Because I've never been able to get into AC before, but I love Peacebone purely as a result of it being more poppy.
Or do you just not think the song's that poppy?
grass and the purple bottle are just as poppy.
Feels is just as an accessible LP in my opinion more so maybe, there are grating parts on SJ where feels is pure bliss. There are few albums I find easier listening to than feels.
I really don't think of Sung Tongs as an accessible LP at all (I still love it though), and only parts of Feels as proper pop. This new one just feels like The Purple Bottle or Grass but all the way through, which is what I love about it.
longer songs like softest voice and visiting friends are less poppy probably but I wouldn't say they're inaccessible by a long shot. The rest of the album is pretty straight forward though, songs like we tigers and whabbit and winters love?
Strawberry Jam definitely has moments that are among the best things they've ever done. It's excellent. The song-writing is probably stronger than anything they've done before.
But feels is just awesome murky, delay-laden, expansive lushness, and I love it as such.
Apparently they'rplaying ESSPLODE on their new tour. Jedud christ! (It could also be said i'm looking to the past).
The post SJ album is going to be incredible.
Feels is my favourite recorded output at the moment, for obvious reasons.
but I'm now obsessed with Fireworks. Is it the best track, or are there more hidden pleasures to follow?
It's a good album.
I would of said, dont be silly ur silly!
Now i'm in preference of the more dancey hooky Strawberry Jam, I never really feel the need to skip a track + Fireworks is one of my fav songs ever.... I have decided. Reverend Green is brilliant to as i Cuckoo!
