5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 17 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
The title track, featured here twice, is excellent enough. Airy, tribal - it's The Animal Collective in a sort of chrysalis form - the perfect mid point between the pastoral bliss of Feels and the melodic hyperkineticity of Strawberry Jam.

Be that as it may, it's the second track, Tikwid, which makes this EP worth owning. It says a lot about a band that one of the finest things they've ever produced is, technically, a b-side. (If their b-sides are THIS good etc. etc.) It's wonderful - a ridiculously catchy folk masterpiece, loaded with addictive melodies and painfully beautiful throughout. Like watching pond life as it skitters around the water at sunset.

4.0 out of 5 stars People! 3 Feb 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
One thing you can count on Animal Collective for: Evolution.

The acid-rockers continue getting weirder and weirder in the "People" EP, which apparently heralds their latest twists in sonic experimentation. This is less pastoral and more acid-soaked than their last album, and if this is their new direction, then listeners will probably be happy to follow them.

It opens with the gentle, melodious strums and little piano plinks. The melody starts to pick up, and heavy strings and harmonies start to weave around it. Then... buzzy synth kicks in, rattling and obscuring the catchy melody until the whole title track is a tangled fuzz opera, complete with bloodcurdling yowls.

There's also a live version of this, which is more stripped-down and less synthed. It's still pretty eerie and screechy by the finale. In between these, there are two other songs: the sunny, crazyfolk "Tikwid" and the creepy ambient "My Favorite Colors," which is like listening to an opera aria underwater.

Apparently "People" is a sample of what's to come for Animal Collective. Yes, it's totally insane -- in a good way.

After years of working together, this band has gotten very polished -- they can weave together intricate tapestries of synth, lo-fi indie-rock, piano, whistles, sirens, and acidic washes of strings and fuzz. These are overlaid over catchy melodies and samples, creating very layered music that never sounds the same twice.

I'll be honest here -- that earsplitting screeching in the live "People" is really annoying, as is the expanding scream in the original. But otherwise the Animal Collective sounds great here -- Beatles-on-acid warbles in "Tikwid," ghostly noises, and howls of "yeah yeah YEAH!" throughout the title track.

"People" is a pretty weird, wild EP, and fans of Animal Collective will be thrilled by their new spins on their usual sound. Bizarre, breezy and absolutely mad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great EP from AC 30 Nov 2006
By Matthew Oconnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This EP is a little taste of what's to come from Animal Collective in 2007. "People" and "Tikwid" were some of my favorite jams from the tour in support of "Sung Tongs" that didn't appear on "Feels" the studio versions sound great and make me look forward to the follow up to "Feels" which is expected to hit shelves in the fall of '07. The live version of "People" has me eagerly anticipating the live box set that's due out this spring.

3.0 out of 5 stars PEOPLE!!! 30 Mar 2007
By Alma LaCroix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm one of those Animal Collective fans that wants to get everything they put out. If you're not, then this EP might not be for you. It has 4 songs on it. The first track, People, is a great song. It has two words in it: "Yeah" & "PEOPLE!" So it's easy to sing along to. The next track is Tikwid, a fun-filled melodic exercise that almost sounds like Grass. The third track is My Favorite Colours. It's short and quite forgettable. And then there's the live version of People, which I don't ever listen to because I think the vocals on the studio version came out a lot better. So, if you're an enthusiast, you'll need to get this. For moderate fans, only buy this if you have extra money and nothing else to spend it on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great EP 23 Jan 2007

Just way too expensive especially for Amazon. I just picked this up today at my local record store for 6 bucks.
4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome EP 26 Dec 2012
By Alexander G - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great music. Opens with a superb title track and is followed by Tikwid (or, the reason I bought the EP). Also, included is a very nice and faithful live rendition of "People" from a show that they had performed. If you were a fan of the newer Animal Collective records that would be reason enough to incorporate this EP into the fold and see how their sound has evolved. Brilliant.
