but close, I really like strawberry jam
because Strawberry Jam is unlistenable
Panda Bear has a soul and is possibly my favourite album of the year. Animal Collective is just a circle-jerk.
Person Pitch is nice and all but some of the songs drag on a bit too long. Not Bros. That's the shit.
just seems to perfectly capture a hazy summer mood across the record. Listening to it in the April sunshine this year was really memorable.
Strawberry Jam hasn't had that effect yet although I'm still listening to it every few days. #1 is a good song for stargazing.
for me, though I do have a lot of love for Person Pitch too.
I was excited about SJ but it gives me a headache. And I LIKE weird music, it's what I'm known for liking!!!
...a trick scenario. They're both ace, they both win and you can own and listen to them both for all eternity! Isn't life wonderful? Circle-jerks all round.
Now Person-Pitch & Strawberry Jam in a tag-team against In Rainbows...
In Rainbows shits on all other 2007 albums so far.
noise-pop induced headache!
but I've barely listened to SJ more than twice yet, so my vote isn't a great one
I only have Person Pitch - what is wrong with me?
Person Pitch is just too self endulgant, though it is brilliant when its not dragging out an intro or outro of a song.
i haven't even heard strawberry jam yet, but there's no way it could be better.
although strawberry jam has grown on me
all the way. I hate strawbery jam and avey's vocals. terrible.
Probably Strawberry Jam though, for me.
Because although Person Pitch has the finest piece of music of the year on it ('Bros') it's a bit top heavy, and has a couple of duffers on it.
Strawberry Jam is amazing - weird stuff that shouldn't work but hangs perfectly over the course of an album. Both halves are equally impressive and you finish after 'Derek' totally satisfied.
To me Strawberry Jam ruins a lot of the more meditative moments of Feels because it reinforces the fact that the highlights of Feels were the more SJ-ey moments ('The Purple Bottle', 'Grass').
And for all of 'Bros' being the best piece of music of the year, Avey's vocal on 'For Reverend Green' is by far and away the best vocal performance of the year. Amazing, amazing record. Not a duff track.
really know how you can describe Person Pitch as 'simplistic' when you listen to the detail of production on the record.
I would say that Person Pitch shades it for me, just.
Person Pitch, without a doubt.
Strawberry Jam is overrated nonsense.
Broken Social Scene fan I'll take that as a compliment.
I made a mistake. It was for Subwoofer. But otherwise...you're an idiot. Well done.
