I've had time to let MPP sink, and that's my conclusion.
DISCLAIMER: All three albums are very very splendid.
Person Pitch>Young Prayer>(Sung Tongs>Feels>MPP>Jam)
i honestly don't get all this strawberry jam hating that seems to be going on. (disclaimer: though i know you weren't slighting it)
very very close between MPP and feels though for me, may switch at some point once mpp settles more
Although I LOVE Feels, they're all just amazing albums!
Now I've said my two cents, let's have a rest.
I bow to no man in my love for Feels, Sung Tongs, SJ and PP, but MPP is top of the shop for me
strawberry jam > sung tongs > merriweather > feels
all are incredible though, 9/10 at least, and i love their other eps and records two. BaNd OF tHE dECadE probs.
that prefers SJ to the new one.
No you haven't. At most you've had a few months. Come back in a year or so, ta.
Feels > MPP > Sung Tongs > Person Pitch > Strawberry Jam > Spirit They've Gone...
I think MPP is the best album they have done & I have liked this band for years and have been a part of all their sounds, I just love how vocally driven the tracks are on this one, its just delightful vocals driving a beat more or less, thats all thats need and structually its just brilliant providing enough accesibility and diversity to get you hooked and keep your interest. I think it combines the best 2 elements of Feels and SJ and combines them like a fine pudding.
and i agree, apart from about SJ being very very splendid, i'd say it was only slightly splendid. Feels just seems more magic but it might be cos i've listened to it more and it was the first AC album i heard and it really excited me at the time and now new albums have more albums-i've-already-heard to compete which makes the comparison unfair i suppose?
how diverse people's choice of favourite album is for animal collective. And Shirley thats a good thing? Especially is everyone is saying they pretty much love their least favourite.
How you asking here?
Id agree though diversity, and animal collective are amazing :D
Kanye likes them
They're all pretty wonderful, often in differing ways. No need for a pissing contest.
that they just keep getting worse and worse
I wasn't sure about MPP for ages but I think it's more consistent than 'Strawberry Jam'. 'Feels' sounds almost quaint now, they've left that step behind by so much. I go back to 'Spirit' more than I go back to 'Feels'.
MPP > Feels > The Rest
