but massively overrated
it isn't good
i meant that i love it.
people what got good music taste
how is it over rated. its bloody genius thats what it is.
its not as exciting or as fun to listen to as any animal collective record for a start. Beach Boys comparisons are lazy but to be fair they are pretty apt seeing as how referential it is in places. Like i said, its good, but its not exactly the holy grail of contemporary music that everyone seems/seemed to make it out to be. Same with Animal Collective, i like them but people seem to spend a lot of their time living in their anus when really some of their stuff is pretty masturbatory. See also: Deerhunter (and i fucking love deerhunter)
almost every other song on cryptograms if you ask me, at least they go on maybe twice as long as they should, or too frequently punctuate the album
in terms of masturbatory AC material i would say almost the whole of Sung Tongs. I like that record.
i'd probably say they're in my top 5 bands ever, if not my favourite, and i'd be the first to admit they can be massively masturbatory.
and i'll be the last to admit they are.
needs more chugga chugga
i'm wearing a panda bear t shirt right now, how kerazy!
if its the same one, i will be shamed.
who cares if it's the same, i'm the biggest badass in london and you're just some tall dude from some weird place, so everyone will know who is the real cool guy.
good but overrated
it's funny, I started off hating this record but also kinda knowing that eventually I would cave in
but the rest of the album is actually amazing too.
was beautiful, man.
just treated me to comfy in nautica - it reminds me of driving to chester in a summer dusk - yet the fog outside today also suits this track! that's special! i read somewhere that the new animal collective album is more panda bear. this has got to only be a good thing because i can't seem to get into animal collective - why? every time they pop up on last fm - i can't listen to it. what should i listen to, to help me 'get' them?
so when I got person pitch I was disapointed as it was so different, didnt really give it a chance, probably should revisit it, it took me a couple of years of owning feels before I listened to it properly then regreted I hadnt earlier
could listen to it all summer though. Beautiful album.
I've never checked out these lot I only just got round to checking AC.
and ends up as dull
Im glad I didn't read this before I went out and got it, I couldn't live without it now.
Still listen to it all the time.
