it's for animal collective
“Animal Collective have been creating music for 10 years and first received quiet acclaim in 2004 on the release of Sung Tongs, however their uncompromising experimental sound, unable to be pinned down by writers and fans alike, kept them rooted firmly in the music underground.”
‘10’ should be written as a word – ‘ten’.
‘received queit acclaim’ is a meaningless music writer’s cliché that should be eschewed.
‘on the release of’ is poor English and should be re-phrased
A semi-colon should appear before ‘however’ which should be followed by a comma.
‘pinned down’ is a cliched phrase that is used here in arbitrarily without meaning.
‘rooted firmly in the music underground’ is beginner’s English.
