Clive Winston's review below sums it up better than I can, but I would just like to add that there is a definite hint of The Feelies in here along with everything else, especially on Banshee Beats.

Cracking album. Definite buy.

Despite what some fans and critics have said, I believe that 'Feels' is an album that more than lives up to its predecessor, the excellent Sung Tongs. The sound here is more expansive and seems a lot freer in its approach, with the emphasis placed on the performance and the seemingly improvised bursts of noise and other such random instrumental touches. At the same time, however, the pop influences shine through, and the album as a whole is a great deal of fun... that is, if you can put aside the bones of scepticism, or the paranoid NME style pigeonholing!!
To be fair, describing the overall sound of the Animal Collective can be a daunting and impossible task. Thus far, they've changed their style considerably from one album to the next, incorporating a number of disparate musical influences, whilst simultaneously striving throughout to fuse traditional pop rhythms and melodies, alongside more experimental song structures and arrangements!! Understandably then, 'Feels' is - for the lack a better word - a trippy album, one that taps into the ethos of the 60's hippie scene and injects it with a contemporary dose of irony (not that the Collective are winking at the audience in an Apples In Stereo stylee or anything, but rather, the use of instrumentation, especially when coupled with the production and that lovely cover art, seem to strive to evoke the free-form excess and the mind-expanding exploration at the heart of the nu-folk and 60's psychedelic genres). This puts them in the same sphere as the Brian Jonestown Massacre, as well as the other two bands of the aforementioned Elephant 6, The Olivia Tremor Control and the mighty Neutral Milk Hotel.

Yesterday I wasn't sure what my favourite album was,this year. Today I strongly believe that it is Feels by The Animal Collective.
I'd previously only heard Here Comes The Indian, a decent set of largely formless, spectral freak-outs. I thought it good, but little more.
This latest album of theirs, however, has quite amazed me. It retains the same ghostly feel of that other album, but marries it to actual songs. With singing, and everything! I realise they've recorded one or two more, between these two, so perhaps I shouldn't be quite so shocked. Regardless, the memorable, melodic depths of Feels are deeply impressive.
The first two tracks sound like Boces-era Mercury Rev covering the Cocteau Twins, recorded live on a malfunctioning machine, the gaps plugged in later, from other sources. Fantastic stuff, then.
As the album progresses, the sound becomes more whispered, less primal. You can't really use typical music-journo. adjectives as 'heavy', 'intense' or 'dense' here. The sound slips and wriggles around so much on this album, even just during one song, that to try and pin it down is pointless.
Standouts for me include the rapturous sound showers of the opening 'Did You See The Words'. Imagine that The Polyphonic Spree are covering The Flaming Lips. It's that good. It's immediately followed by 'Grass', wherein bird song and gentle humming mix with primal shrieks, dramatic drum swells and cymbal crashes, all married to an incredibly memorable melody.
Elsewhere the more ambient tracks are dreamy, soothing, abandoning the more disturbing aspects of previous Animal Collective songs for a more reassuring, comforting sound.
It's the sort of thing that makes me glad I only make music for fun. It'd be utterly depressing to try and compete with this for any more serious a reason.

Feels further confirms that not only does Animal Collective make music different from anything else that's out there - these folks are also quite good at it. If listening to each Animal Collective release is a little bit like having the Collective guide you through a primal forest, Here Comes the Indian is like venturing deep into the Heart of Darkness, and Sung Tongs let a little bit of light shine through the trees. Listening to Feels, then, is like settling down in a sunny clearing; all the soothing sounds of the forest still reach your ears, but this time, Animal Collective won't get lost along the way.

Format: Audio CD
an absolute education in atmosphere, ambience and crescendo through pure analogue sound. swirling piano's, distant and trippy guitar sounds and hypnotising drums from noah. avey tare hammers out some inspirational, almost rambleing vocals like a battle of sense and surreal. throughout there is staggering harmony be it in the form of vocals or instrumentation and arrangement - truly impressive and i urge those of you who enjoy losing yourself in landscape like sound, with beach boys-esc use of vocals and folky songs hidden underneath layers of watery and hypnotic sound to buy this record.
