Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

Animal Collective has been blowing people's minds for quite some time now, and their newest release, Merriweather Post Pavilion, is yet another exciting addition to their already extensive catalog. Like much of their more recent releases, the songs on this album definitely reflect the band's ever-changing interests and sounds very similar to the more electronica-influenced music Panda Bear's been putting out on his own. Deeply layered tracks, unique rhythms, and a certain amount of playfulness are the MO here.

you know, i may be castrated for this, but i really am not blown away by animal collective. i enjoy their stuff, but i by no means hail it as the second coming.

I think their newer albums are superior to the older ones. But I feel like the have a tendency to make their songs needlessly complex and layered. It just gets kind of sloppy sometimes.
